A lot of nuisance created by a number of wild birds that have invaded the Aprutu Anglican Primary School, based at Sefwi Aprutu in the Akontombra District of the Western Region, has led to the closure of the school.
Residents of the Aprutu community, which is largely a cocoa growing area, do not really know where birds migrated from, but information obtained by The Finder indicates that, for over a decade, the wild birds have adopted the school as their abode, making teaching and learning an arduous task.
Bismarck Appiah, a tutor in the school who has had the experience of contending with the troublesome birds, confirmed the difficulty of both pupils and teachers in their attempt to fight the birds.
"Sack them in the morning before class and in few hours they are all over the place again, making uncontrollable noise to distract teaching and learning," he stressed.
He said the attention of authorities, particularly the Akontombra District Assembly, has been drawn to the problem, but the school was yet to receive any favourable response.
He also revealed that several letters written by the teachers in the school to the authorities of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to intervene have not also received any encouraging response.
On his part, Kingsley Adade, a tutor with only two years’ experience in the school, said many teachers have left because of the nauseating conduct of the birds in the school.
Head teacher of the school, Rose Asante, who could no longer bear the nuisance being created by the birds, organised a Parents-Teachers Association (PTA) meeting on Monday to announce the closure of the school.
