As the academic year commences, the Principal of the oldest government run high school in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County, Mr. Samuel B. Kessellie, is crying out for more support for the institution.
Speaking with our reporter at his office, Mr. Kessellie said, since his appointment as head of the institution the school is in dying need of financial support and materials to refurbish the building.
He alarmed that little attention is provided the school which is crucial to impacting knowledge into the future generation of Liberia.
The school Principal said, the institution lacks library, science laboratory, modern computer lab, electricity and fence to stop students from loitering in the community during school hours.
This he said, as Principal state actors need to lobby and refurbish the institution.
According to him, a conducive learning environment encourages parents to send their kids to attain knowledge, but if such is not realize it discourages both students and parents.
Meanwhile, Mr. Kessellie said, he has informed the education authority of the county including local authorities but nothing has been done to address the situation.
He at the same time, appeal to central government through the Ministry of Education and imminent sons and daughters of Grand Cape Mount County residing abroad to help rebuild the school.
