At Koforidua’s Adweso Estate St. Dominic Catholic School, classes have been temporarily suspended due to the damage caused by Monday’s downpour.

Around 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 19, a one-hour downpour and high winds combined to demolish multiple teaching and learning resources by ripping off the JHS 2 and JHS 3 classrooms, the staff common room, a pavilion, and the school’s ICT lab.

Some of the students could be seen laboriously cleaning dirt off of computers that had been exposed to rainwater; others were spreading wet books out to dry in the sun.

The impacted classrooms’ contents were relocated to a temporary pavilion located on the Catholic Church’s grounds, which is adjacent to the school.

On behalf of all former students, Alex Addo Anim Tete, a former student, visited the school to evaluate the situation. He made a strong plea to the government and civil society organizations to step in right now so that academic work can restart in its entirety.

To determine the extent of the damage, a delegation from the area’s member of parliament and deputy minister of trade and industry, Michael Kofi Okyere Baafi, visited the school.
