PUPILS OF GOLDEMA KG/PRIMARY SCHOOL CARRY WATER IN BOTTLES TO SCHOOL EVERYDAY

 

Lack of reliable potable water source in Goldema KG/Primay School compel pupils to carry improvised water bottles to school every day.

Goldema is located in the Builsa North District of the Upper East Region of Ghana. The school with its current population of 82 pupils serve three neighboring communities namely, Goldema, Badumsa and Sichasa. The school has 4 classrooms block and just up to primary one.

The water situation pave way for pupils to frequently leave the classrooms in search of water and sometimes do not come back to class for the day. This worrying and avoidable situation has lingered on since the inception of the school in the year 2014. Stakeholders such as Parents, teachers and the pupils are of much worry that if the situation is not arrested could deter children from attending the only school around the area.

The head teacher Mrs Aforigu Grace said they have to manage with the situation some time and thinks it is high time duty bearers come to their aid. She was also made a passionate appeal to philanthropists, benevolent organizations and non-governmental organizations to come to their aid. And also going forward the school would be in need of more classrooms.
