The Assembly Member for the Sheaga Electoral Area in the Talensi district of the Upper East region, Augustine Mmi-oni Guure, has raised some educational challenges affecting the basic school in the community that are affecting teaching and learning.

Mr. Guure mentioned that, despite Sheaga being a mining community, the kindergarten (KG) and the Junior High School blocks are both dilapidated, posing danger and discomfort to the pupils.

Speaking at an educational forum at Tongo organized by School for Life, the Sheaga Assembly Member said that among other challenges, he wants the situation to be addressed in his community which he says is affecting quality education.

“Both the KG and the Junior High blocks are dilapidated. If you look at the edifice of the Junior High block, it looks normal but when you go inside, almost all the roof has fallen off, and the ceiling in the classrooms is nowhere to be found. So when it’s windy, you cannot sit in the classrooms. And this is one of the major issues that I detected when I got to the school after I was elected as Assembly Member,” he said.

Mr. Guure, who was elected Assembly Member for the community in the 2023 district level election, said that due to his passion for quality education, he is in touch with the school authorities to ensure student performance improves, among other things.

The Sheaga Assemblyman also applauded School for Life for considering his community among nine other communities where the Citizen-Led Action for Educational Accountability and Responsiveness in Ghana (CLEAR) project was implemented to encourage quality education.
