Students and pupils of the Adjei State School for the Deaf are appealing to the Ministry of Education and corporate organisations to fence their school to save them from frequent attacks by wee smokers.
The premises of the State School for the Deaf has been turned into a thoroughfare because the school has no security person at the entrance; the fence wall around the school is uncompleted.
The ‘ganja’ boys access the compound to disrupt teaching and learning and harass the pupils and teachers.
Interacting with some of the students through a sign language interpreter, they told The Finder that they are in constant fear of being attacked and beaten by the wee smokers.
The wee smokers, the students explained, usually hide in the huge abandoned boys’ dormitory in the school to smoke their herbs, and when they are ‘high,’ they invade the compound when the students and pupils are on break and chase them with sticks.
Their teachers, most of them females, become helpless and scared so they quickly lock their classrooms when the students and pupils hurriedly ran in.
Lamenting to The Finder, the headmistress of the school, Madam Barbara Ennin, said “my students have told you what our prime problem is in the school. The wee smokers are harassing and terrorising my students and I want the fence walls to be constructed to protect the students.”
Madam Barbara wishes the female students could start using their boarding house, but “my fear is these wee smokers will attack the girls in the night and do something untoward to them.”
The headmistress said, “I have made series of appeals but nobody is paying heed to them. Please, and please, I need the school fence walls completed and security lights to protect our special students.”
