Headmaster of Sra Presby Junior High School, Mr. Andrews Amanya has made a passionate appeal to parents to provide their wards’ basic needs to aid in their academic performance.
According to him, most of the students in the school are foster children with others living on their own, thus most of them lack parental control and involve themselves in nefarious activities.
In a further interview with Rite News during a field monitoring exercise in his school which is one of the schools involved in the District Education Observer Project II, Mr. Amanya revealed that, some of the students’ report to school very late since they sometimes hawk or sell before coming to school.
On some infrastructural challenges confronting the school, the school head said teachers and students in the school lack furniture which has necessitated the school approaching the Sra Presbyterian Church for assistance as an alternative solution.
He therefore called on Philanthropists and concerned citizens to come to their aid and assist them to address some of the challenges confronting the educational facility.
Mr. Amanya therefore urged parents to provide the basic needs of their wards to help promote effective and efficient teaching and also visit their wards at school regularly to check their academic performance.
