Bo Waterside Public School To Get US$20K Annex
By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, March 27 (LINA) -The administration of the Mano River Bo-Waterside Community Public school in Tewor District, Grand Cape Mount County, plans to build an annex to the school at a cost of over US$20,000.
Principal Brima Zogbo told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Grand Cape Mount County recently that the annex has a library, laboratory, auditorium, teachers’ lounge, cafeteria and additional classrooms due to the growing student population.
Mr. Zogbo said portion of the funding will be raised by citizens of the district through fundraising and personal contributions, while part of the funds will come from the district's allotment from the County Development Fund(CDF).
He said upon the completion of the project, the school will be elevated from junior high to senior high school level.
According to him, since the establishment of the school in 1975, it has been operating as a junior high school.
He said the administration has decided to elevate the school in order to prevent graduates of the school from travelling long distances to seek high school education.
Zogbo told LINA that the institute has an enrollment of 791 students.
Meanwhile, he has said the roof of the school building is leaking and needs repairs as the rainy season draws near.
