Some residents of Sanchiga in the Wa Municipality of the Upper West Region have appealed to the Wa Municipal Assembly to construct classrooms for the school in the community.


The Community members contributed to build a temporal structure in 1998 from primary one to six.
Children in the community used to attend school in Jonga before the construction of the temporal structure by the community members.

The Jonga community is two miles away from the community and the pupils were unable to attend school whenever it rains because they could not cross a valley between the two communities.
The six unit classroom block has neither doors nor windows and the floor of all the classrooms is yet to be cemented.
The structure has developed cracks and teachers are sometimes compelled to close the pupils when it threatens to rain.
Some of the residents speaking on Tuesday said efforts to get the Wa Municipal Assembly to work on a new structure for the school have proved futile.
They say a site has been allocated for the construction of the new school but all they have seen was the Assembly do is fetch one trip of sand to the site.
But speaking to the Wa Municipal Chief Executive Hon. Issahaku Tahiru Moomin on Radio Progress late afternoon news analysis programme ‘’Bong bi ayiren’’ on Wednesday, he said the Assembly has procured a number of bags of cement to work on the structure, he also promised to allocate a six unit classroom block to the community anytime central government approve projects to the Assembly.
