Pupils at Senchi Methodist JHS in the Eastern region study under trees following a JHS block which has been abandoned after construction started in 2013.
Prior to this, the school depended on an old mud block built several decades ago which has now collapsed making it impossible to use.
This has left the pupils and teachers with no option than having classes and offices under trees respectively.

Apart from classroom block being an issue, two or three pupils are seen sharing a desk meant for one whiles some are seen seated on pieces of blocks.
Headmaster of the school, Samuel Wadie Addo speaking to Adom News’ Kwame Yankah  said even the new structure is a death trap.
“We are not safe at all because the new structure built over fours ago has no pillars support it and we don’t know when disaster will strike. The old one is also not in use because it equally poses danger to both teachers and pupils alike,” he said.
“We have been told it’s a GETFUND project but lack of funds has delayed the project which was to be completed within three months after commencement,” Mr. Wadie Addo revealed.
The headmaster is therefore appealing to the government and relevant bodies to ensure that the abandoned project is completed for use.

The pupils are combined during language class despite some learning Ewe and others, Akuapem Twi.
“It’s very difficult for us to learn two different languages in the same class at the same time. There are inadequate desks for us, no ICT lab, and no staff common room for teachers among a host of challenges the school has,” a pupil indicated.
The pupils are not happy as class could come to a close with a little change in weather.

Meanwhile, Senchi Nifa Dabehene, Nana Addo Ababio I said the situation will have negative impact on the future of the pupils.
“We have done everything within our means but to no avail. The Asuogyaman District Education office is not helping matters by its lukewarm attitude towards the plight of the school. In the just ended BECE, some pupils carried their own desk from home to the exams centre to write their papers,” Nana Ababio said.
