Acomai school shifts office to pit latrines

The administration of Acomai Primary School in Kamutur sub county in Bukedea district, currently operates in a pit latrine after rainwater washed away the existing structures in the school.

 

Founded by the community in 2008, the government took over the school in 2012 after Bukedea District Local Government posted teachers to the school. The school had an enrolment of close to 1,000 pupils by the time government closed schools in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the school which was operating in temporal structures was recently affected by the heavy rains that swept away the buildings, leaving only the two-stance pit latrine standing in the compound. This prompted the school administration to shift all the office equipment including furniture, school records and textbooks among others to the pit latrine, which is also being used by the community in the neighbourhood.

Stephen Ogaali, the Deputy Head Teacher Acomai Primary School and only staff member found in the school told our reporter that they have written several reports to the district for help but nothing is forthcoming. He explained that several monitoring visits have been conducted at the school by both the local leaders and technical staff at the district.

 

We thank you for your generosity towards helping the acomai community, we appeal for more support in donations. Kindly share with your family and friends this will us reach our goal soon. Thank you
