|CLASS ONE pupils and teachers of St.Agnes Catholic Primary School in the New Juaben Municipality of the Eastern Region yesterday staged a massive demonstration to vent their anger on the continuous use of their classroom for a brothel by some unscrupulous individuals in the area.Worryingly, the hooligans leave piles of faeces in the classroom after their sexual escapades in the night.
The angry pupils led by their teachers marched to the palace of the Queen mother of New Juaben traditional area, Nana Yaa Dani and later to the New Juaben Municipal assembly to express their grievance to the Municipal Chief Executive, Dr.Kwaku Owusu Acheampong.
Speaking to the DAILY HERITAGE in an interview, Class 1 teacher, Frema Kwakye, intimated that for the past two years, some residents in the Srodae community, where the school is located, have continuously been defecating indiscriminately in their classroom.
According to her, this forces them to use lesson hours to supervise the little children to scrap the toilet-ridden floor adding that “these people sometimes go to the extent of smearing faeces on teacher’s table and blackboard.”
She lamented that “the most annoying aspect of the whole scenario is the fact that these faceless individuals have turned the classroom into makeshift brothels where they have sexual intercourse. Instead of covering up their shameful activity, they leave behind used condoms filled with sperms in the classroom’.”
Madam Frema explained that, several complaints to opinion leaders and the Catholic education Unit have yielded no results as the act continues unabated.
She said when the pupils met the incident again yesterday, they decided to boycott class and stage a demonstration to express their displeasure to the authorities.
She said the demonstration disrupted teaching and learning in the whole primary school since the pupils and teachers were all sympathizing with the children.
She explained that even though there is a gate, the perpetrators have on countless occasions forcibly broken into the room to commit the offence.
The Headmistress of the School, Margret Allasani, noted that, they have petitioned the Municipal Chief Executive and are looking forward to seeing a positive action else there is no option than to advise themselves.
She blamed the community leaders for doing little to stop the act since the perpetrators are known to them.
Speaking to the paper in an interview, the MCE, Dr.Kwaku Owusu Acheampong, condemned the act and promised to take swift action against the perpetrators.
He assured that he would employ the police but, appealed to the community to volunteer information to enable them crack down on the hooligans.
