Mr Moses Anim, the Member of Parliament of Trobu in the Greater Accra Region, has said schools must be located inside or at short distance from the community to ensure safety.
He said it was hazardous, for example, to enable five-year olds to walk long distance to class including; ‘Aside from putting their lives in peril the circumstance does not advance learning as the students may by tired before they get the chance to class and return home tired to try and get their work done.’
He, therefore, appealed to philanthropists and non-governmental organisations to assist the Government in the provision of school blocks.
It was on the theme: ‘Enhancing Education for the Betterment of the Future.’
Mr Anim urged parents and guardians to prioritise their children’s education by providing them with their learning needs.
Mr Isaac K. Mintah Sackey, the Proprietor of the School, said it was founded in 2011 with six pupils, but now has 200 students.
He appealed to the Ministry of Education to supply the School with textbooks and computers to improve on academic work and the study of Information and Communication Technology.
