Bibiani Anglican JHS goes double-track after fire outbreak

The Bibiani Anglican Junior High School has resorted to a double-track system after fire gutted their classroom block and other facilities.

On May 26, 2022, a fire outbreak destroyed the Bibiani Anglican Junior High School block and to date, authorities have not been able to renovate the block. As a result, the over 500 pupils share the same block with the primary school pupils.

The headteacher of Bibiani Anglican JHS, Charles Nyame Arthur, disclosed that the fire outbreak happened due to a fault in the electric power connection. He said since the incident last year May, the school has been running a shift system with the primary school.

Since the primary block cannot contain both the JHS pupils and the primary, the school has resorted to a double-track system. The primary pupils use the classroom from the morning to noon for a week and the JHS pupils from noon to the evening.

The headteacher said the situation has not been easy for them, especially the primary pupils.

A teacher at the School, Godfred Tetteh, said because of the shift system, parents have started withdrawing their wards from the school.

Also, teaching and learning have been ineffective since they have a short period to spend in the classroom and they have inadequate desks for the students. The teacher appealed to the authorities to come to their aid.
