Official Outlines Hurdles At Damballah School

By D. Ignatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, March 5 (LINA) - The Principal of Damballah Public School in Porkpa Statutory District, Grand Cape Mount County, Mr. Barry Kamara, says the shortage of chairs is hampering the learning process at the school.

He said this shortage has caused some students to use blocks and other objects as seats, while other students carry chairs from their homes to sit on in class.

Principal Kamara told the Liberia News Agency in Grand Cape Mount County that it was difficult to impart knowledge, in the absence of a conducive learning environment.

He said besides chairs, the school does not have a laboratory, library and crucial instructional materials that could make learning easy for the young people in the district.

Kamara explained that the administration has finalized plans to construct an annex to meet the demands of the growing number of students in the area.

According to him, the school has an enrollment of 586 students, with 236 girls and 350 boys.

Kamara said due to lack of sufficient classrooms at the school, the kindergarten, first and second grades are using the auditorium as classrooms.
