Ejisu SHTS students displaced after rainstorm ripped off roof of boys dormitory

Scores of students of the Ejisu Senior High Technical School have been displaced following a rainstorm that ripped off the roof of the boys’ dormitory on Saturday, March 2, 2024.

The over 150 affected students sought shelter in classrooms on Saturday following the incident.

The students were at the dining hall when the incident happened. No injuries or casualties have been recorded.

The rains which lasted for hours destroyed teaching and learning materials and the school’s storeroom where textbooks and other materials are kept have also been damaged.

Although the boys’ dormitory was the hardest hit, about seven classrooms were also affected.

Authorities have stepped in and have provided an interim accommodation for the affected students while engineers and officers of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) from the Ejisu Municipal Assembly have begun an assessment of the damage.

The Municipal Chief Executive for Ejisu, Samuel Oduro Frimpong visited the school with the Education Director and gave assurances of intervening.

Meanwhile, the Ejisu Experimental and Krapa Basic Schools also suffered damage from the storm.
