Girls of Pong-Tamale Senior High School (SHS) in the Savelugu Municipality of the Northern Region are putting up at a make-shift structure after fire has destroyed their dormitory.
Fire broke out at about 11:30 hours GMT in the girls’ dormitory of the school last Monday, destroying the facility and other valuables of the 792 girls who occupied dormitory.
It took personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service some time to douse the flames, which spread through the 12-room dormitory facility, leaving students and school authorities in anguish.
Mrs Margaret Gbande, Headmistress of Pong-Tamale SHS, said the incident was affecting academic activities of the School.
She appealed to government and education stakeholders to come to the aid of the School.
The facility was constructed in 2012 as part of efforts to upgrade the School’s infrastructure.
Miss Alhassan Mariam, a final year student, also appealed to the Ghana Education Service (GES) to support the final year students, who were writing the ongoing West Africa Senior School Certificate Examinations with text books they lost in the fire.
