On Tuesday, June 4, 2024, a severe rainstorm wreaked havoc at Bolgatanga Girls’ Senior High School in the Upper East Region, damaging several classrooms and dormitories.

The storm’s aftermath has left the school community in urgent need of support, prompting appeals from the Old Students Association and Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) executives for government intervention.

During a visit to the affected areas, Madam Joanna Pwabura Adaberi, President of the Old Students Association, described the scene as dire. “

The situation is messy, and urgent interventions are needed. If actions are not taken immediately, the next rainstorm could be disastrous,” she warned. She explained the vulnerability of the school’s structures, noting that the wood and positioning of the buildings make them susceptible to further damage from even slight winds.

Madam Adaberi further expressed relief that the storm occurred when students were not in the classrooms, averting potential casualties. She was accompanied by members of the association, including the PRO Madam Monica Bakiva, and several PTA executives during her visit.

Alhaj Ibrahim Banporimbu Bawa Saheed, Vice Chairman of the Bolgatanga Girls’ SHS Parent Association, also voiced his distress over the extensive damage. “It is heartbreaking to see the extent of the destruction caused by the rainstorm. We urgently need authorities to assist, especially for the students whose dormitories were affected,” he stated.

Headmistress Patricia Agoteba Anaba echoed these concerns, highlighting the immediate impact on the school’s academic activities. “The damage is affecting teaching and learning, and we need urgent repairs to restore normalcy,” she said, calling for swift governmental and benevolent support to rehabilitate the school infrastructure.

The Old Students Association and PTA are therefore appealing to the government and other stakeholders to provide immediate assistance to ensure the safety and well-being of the students. The timely response and support, they say, are crucial to preventing further damage and ensuring the continuity of education at Bolgatanga Girls’ Senior High School.
