Principal Wants Fence To Contain Students
By D. Ignatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, Jan 24 (LINA) - The Principal of the Robertsport High School in Grand Cape Mount County, Mrs. Musu J.K. Dennis, has appealed to government and partners to help construct a fence around the school campus to prevent students boycotting classes.

She said the constant boycott of classes by students is creating a serious setback in their educational pursuits.

Mrs. Dennis made the appeal on the school’s campus in Robertsport on Thursday in an interview with the Liberia News Agency correspondent in the county.

She said the students usually boycott classes to aid fishermen on the beaches around Robertsport city to obtain income.


According to Madam Dennis, the only government-run high school in Robertsport has an enrollment of 275 students, including 165 boys and 110 girls.

In a related development, the Vice Principal for Instruction of the Islamic Model Elementary School, A. Siaka Fahnbulleh, has said most students of the school sit on cement blocks, rocks and other objects in class due to lack of chairs.

He said failure by government and prominent citizens of the county, including the Legislative Caucus, to come to the rescue of the school could cause it to shut down.

The school has an enrollment of 510 students, with 310 males and 200 females, with only nine teachers. Four teachers are on government payroll while five serve as volunteer teachers.
