Students of Yilo Krobo SHS sleep outside with their luggage’s as dormitory project is abandoned

Infrastructure challenges in Yilo Krobo Senior High School in Eastern Region have compelled boarding students to sleep outside with their luggage and trunks.

A wooden structure built in 1972 with maximum accommodation capacity of 70 students is currently serving as a dormitory for close to 1000 male students causing serious overcrowding.

The students are unable to sleep in the evening due to overcrowding forcing many to sleep outside.

Sadly, a huge boys’ dormitory project started in 2012 which is almost 90% complete has however been abandoned.

The girls’ dormitory is similarly overcrowded compelling the students to park their luggage and books in the corridor at the mercy of thieves who invade the school to steal due to the lack of fence wall around the school.

The dormitory infrastructure crisis is expected to worsen when the first-year students report to school next week.

Sources say, the management of the school is helpless about the development and has written to the ministry of education and GETFUND to complete the abandoned boys’ dormitory project with alacrity to ease the pressure.

Chairman of the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) Mr Idrisu Adamptey told the media that, the school was also grappling with lack of furniture and hence asked parents to buy plastic chairs for the students.
