Snake attacks a student of Have Senior Tech Institute
It is reported that a snake has attacked and bitten a final year Auto Mechanic Student identified as Constance of the Have Senior Technical Institute in Afadjato South District of the Volta Region while on his way to prep.
The incident is reported to have happened on Saturday, March 11, 2023.
Information gathered revealed that she was rushed to the Kpando Government Hospital for treatment where he is reported to be battling for his life.
A visit to the school revealed that the school’s lighting system is very poor as there are only four street lights on the school compound leaving most of the areas very dark and dangerous.
Some students in an interview disclosed that this is the third time a snake has bitten a student while going about their academic duties.
Sources say the students go to the bush to ease themselves due to the lack of toilet facilities in the school.
Aside from the lighting issue, almost all the first-year students sleep in corridors, in classrooms, and the dining hall, again due to a lack of adequate space in the dormitory.
Some students who were seen sleeping on their chop boxes and trunks in the night said they have no option but to sleep out because their dormitories are overcrowded.
They claim food shortage on campus has compelled boarders to sneak out to the community at night to buy food to eat.
The school has infrastructural challenges as the students use classrooms as their dining hall and host other social gatherings at the same place.
The students, therefore, appealed to the District Chief Executive for the Afadjato South District to come to their aid by supporting them with more street lights to enhance the lighting on campus and make the place safer.
