Central Tongu: New Hope RC School needs classrooms, furniture

Pupils of the New Hope RC School kneel in the sand during lessons. The school has no classrooms, desks and other amenities to make learning attractive. There are no trained teachers but leaders of Bakpa Dzave in the Adidome district through their own efforts, ensure the school is running, regardless of the challenging situation.


The Bakpa-Dzave community in the Adidome district started the School 9 years ago through a self-help project. The school now has pupils in the kindergarten up to JHS 2. It has 4 SHS graduates as teachers  and they happen to be natives of the community. They believe that they must contribute their own quota to the well-being of the younger ones, besides this is their home and only they can make it better now before help comes.

Mr. Delight Akah is secretary to the headman of the community. In a telephone conversation with nutis.org, he commended the pupil teachers currently at post for doing extremely well but was worried about the lack of trained teachers to get the pioneers ready for the next BECE. He told this blog that the community is in touch with the GES and hopes the community school is assigned some professional teachers ahead of BECE next year.

Delight Akah also tells us the community puts resources together to pay the pupil teachers an amount between 70 and 80 Cedis a month.  He acknowledges it is woefully inadequate but that is their strength. He emphasized, they explain the  spirit and benefits of communality to the young teachers before they take up the job.

He says their biggest challenges are the lack of school building and furniture for pupils and teachers.

The KG and most of the primary school pupils were recently blessed with some writing materials by the Home of Vision Foundation.


Mr. Delight Akah is appealing to natives of Bakpa-Dzave who live outside the community, as well as NGO’s to come to their aid so they can put up classroom structures and buy furniture for effective teaching and learning.



 Bakpa Dzave also lacks potable water. Members buy water from neighboring communities for their daily use. According to Mr. Akah, pipes have been laid over six months ago but they are yet to see the water flow.


In order to get water to cook one has to buy a barrel of water at 4 cedis every day. For drinking, they buy sachet water and for washing they fetch water from this contaminated pond.

UTAG Strike: Gov’t hopeful lectures will resume soon

Nutis.org monitoring citi news today, gathers that the Education Minister Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum is positive about university lecturers returning to the lecture halls soon. He however failed to disclose the decisions taken at  his outfits meeting with Vice Chancellors of public universities.  



 Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum told citi news “We met with the Vice-Chancellors of the various universities and discussed a number of issues, bordering around how to get our university teachers, without whom schools will not run back to the lecture halls.”



“Some important decisions were made and I am glad about the outcome. We are going to follow through to ensure that the strike is called off in the coming days.”



UTAG has since 2012 raised red flags over government’s unwillingness to meeting its needs.


In 2012, a lecturer’s basic plus market premium was pegged at $2,084.42. UTAG members basic premiums currently is at $997.84. 


Earlier on citi news, the National Secretary of UTAG, Dr. Asare Asante-Annor said “The lawyer made it clear that we signed a couple of MOAs [in the past], but the employer has not shown any good faith anytime the MOAs were signed’’


UTAG has been on strike since January 10 to force the government to restore the conditions of service agreed upon in 2012.
