Govt. School In Cape Mount To Shut Down Due To Deplorable Condition
By D .Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, June 7 (LINA) - More than 800 students at the Government Demonstration Elementary School in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount
County are expected to be out of school due to the dilapidatedGovt. School In Cape Mount To Shut Down Due To Deplorable Condition
condition of its building.

Disclosing this to the Liberia News Agency in Robertsport Friday, the County Education Officer, Dwight Harvey, said the roof of the building
is so dilapidated that whenever it rains the administration is left with no other alternative but to send the children home, thereby
interrupting normal learning activities at the school.

Harvey told LINA that if nothing is immediately done to arrest the situation, especially during this rainy season, the school
administration and the county education authority will be compelled to close the school because the building becomes flooded whenever it
rains.

He also disclosed that besides the deplorable condition of the roof, all of the doors of the building are obsolete, while several chairs in
classrooms are damaged. He added that the five toilet-room building at the school is also damaged, thereby forcing students to use the nearby
bushes to defecate.

The Liberian educator is therefore appealed to government and international non-governmental organizations to come to the aid of the
school so that the children will continue their education.
