Rainstorm destroys AMASS blocks

17.03.2004 LISTEN

Kumasi, March 16, GNA - A severe rainstorm that hit the Kumasi metropolis on Monday has destroyed buildings and roofs of some classrooms blocks of the T.I. Ahmadiyya Secondary School (AMASS). The entire roofing of the school's bookstore and the computer laboratory, and five other classroom blocks were ripped off.

Mr Yusif Kwabena Agyare, Headmaster of the school, who briefed the Ghana News Agency in Kumasi on Tuesday, mentioned the affected classroom blocks as SS1B1, SS1B2, SS2C3 and the typing pool. He said the destruction was so intense that if immediate steps were not taken to re-roof the affected blocks, academic work in the school could be hampered.

Mr Agyare therefore appealed to National Disaster Management Organisation, the Regional Co-ordinating Council and the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) to come to the aid of the school in order to avoid interruptions in its academic calendar.
