LASSOSA donates mattresses to alma mater, Lawra SHS
The Lawra Secondary School Old Students Association (LASSOSA) has donated 100 pieces of student mattresses to its alma mater, Lawra Senior High School.
This was in response to the rainstorm disaster that ripped off the girls’ dormitory of the school in March this year displacing some 216 school girls.
Naa Alhaji Seidu Tungbani, the Headmaster of the school, who received the items on behalf of the school, commended the old students for their support to the school.
He said officials of the school have called on authorities for support but were yet to receive any help from them.
“As we speak, the dormitory block that was ripped still remain as it is because despite several appeals, written communications, writs to government, we have not yet received any positive results,” Naa Tungbani said.
He said the school is still facing infrastructural challenges, which he said is affecting academic performance in the school.
Naa Tungbani stated that the school is in dire need of classroom blocks as the present classrooms in the school are overpopulated with about 60 – 70 students in a class, double the West African Examination Council (WAEC)’s standard of 30 students per class.
He appealed to the contractors working on some of the school projects, especially the Assembly Hall complex, currently under construction, to quicken works to pave way for its usage to ease congestion in the classrooms.
Naa Alhaji Tungbani said the school has population of about 1,900 people that depends on one mechanized borehole as a source of water which he described as woefully inadequate and worrying.
On his part, Mr Thomas Tengan, the National Vice President of LASSOSA called on the all old student of the school to join the association to also contribute to the development of the school.
