Youngsters of college-going age at Oli, a disadvantaged network inside the Wa West District, are not able to get admission to pre-number one education because of the shortage of a faculty within the network.The kids in the network could most effective start formal schooling on the age of 10 and older considering they had to trek several kilometers to different groups to get right of entry to schooling.
This came to light whilst the Ghana information company (GNA) visited the network to ascertain some pertinent challenges the people confronted.Madam Salamatu Imori, a resident of the Oli community, instructed the GNA in an interview that the scenario discouraged many kids inside the network from attending school.“Our network is remoted and hidden, so we are not getting any improvement tasks right here. We don’t have a faculty right here, so our children must stroll to Gbache for college.“a bit child cannot stroll that distance, so before a child can cross there, the kid should be about 10 years or above”, she explained.
Whilst recognising the significance of schooling, Madam Imori indicated that pre-number one training was vital inside the toddler’s mind improvement and gaining knowledge of capability.Mr Sabogu Tapori, any other resident, said the plight of the children turned into worsened by means of a move that cut the Gbache network from Oli making it difficult for the youngsters to head to high school for the duration of the wet season.“If we have a (Kindergarten) here our kids may be attending and whilst they are to graduate to primary then they may be going to Gbache, due to the fact from right here to Gbache could be very some distance,” Mr Tapori stated.
The residents, consequently appealed to the government and other stakeholders in the schooling region to come to their aid by means of presenting the community with a pre-number one faculty to whip up the interest of the youngsters in formal schooling.
