Mt. Sinai SHS appeals to gov’t for infrastructure development
The management of the Mount Sinai Senior High School is appealing to the government to bridge the infrastructure gap facing the school to aid teaching and learning by providing some basic facilities.
According to authorities, the school does not have adequate dormitories, teachers bungalows, and other basic amenities.
Delivering his address on the school’s 40th-anniversary celebration over the weekend the headmaster, David Wise Dunu, called on the government to address the infrastructure deficit in the school to enable the school to compete with others.
“The school lacks an administration block, a situation which hinders the efficient delivery of administrative work, this situation has made me to operate and carry out my official duties from a church premise closer to the school and doesn’t augur well for the image of this school, the school lacks inadequate classroom block for effective teaching and learning. Unfortunately, Mount Sinai can not boast of good classrooms because the classroom blocks are woefully inadequate, It is sad to see student sharing mono desk”.
” This clumsy arrangement needs to be curtailed so am therefore appealing to the government to provide us with more classroom blocks to aid us work and deliver our mandate efficiently and effectively”.
Mr. Dunu revealed that lack of dormitory facilities forces many female students to seek shelter outside of the school making supervision impossible
He added, ” we have huge acres of land at our new site and we want the government to make use of it and help bridge the infrastructural gap which is crippling the school and making teaching and learning a nightmare”.
On her part, Madam Cathrine Afeku, a former Minister of Tourism Culture and Creative Arts who was the special guest of honour indicated that the school deserves the support that it is asking for.
She also assured the school that the government would commit the needed resources to improve teaching and learning.
“Looking at the caliber of people gathered here and the level of improvement against all odds, you deserve the support that your headmaster is championing. I believe together with all the stakeholders who have gathered here to nurture the future leaders,we shall all support the school in its diverse ways to enable the dreams of the forefathers of Mount Sinai to come to pass”.
She, however, stressed that for the school to be made a better one, all stakeholders including the parents, teachers, and chiefs, clergies to come on board and help the school achieve its aim.
“If all this would be possible, then individuals and collective efforts of all stakeholders involved in the educational skills and training value chain must be effectively harnessed and applied to the maximum”.
