YEN.com.gh has sighted a video of a nursery school operating on the open beach not far from the Fire Service Training School in the area commonly referred to by Accra dwellers as Lavender Hill.
In a video posted to YouTube as part of 3FM’s Community Connect, the early childhood development centre, Genesis Academy, is sited in an area that is obviously not right for the service it is offering.
The area, which used to house an abattoir, is popularly known as ‘Bone Dey’.
3news.com reports that it is not certain if the nursery school is authorised to train kids but the Accra Metropolitan Assembly’s (AMA) Public Relations Officer (PRO), Gilbert Ankrah, says “the AMA will investigate to take the necessary action”.
According to a source who lives near the school, Genesis Academy has been active for nearly two months with a population of about 30 pupils, aged between two and five.
The quality of the video YEN.com.gh retained shows that the video was short by an amateur and in secret.
In the one-wooden structure school, all the pupils are brought together and taught the basics just like any other preparatory school.
The video also shows three Formica teaching boards, indicating three separate classes receiving instruction in a shared space.
The area under discussion is a danger to minors apart from the fact that the environment is not conducive for school education.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has sighted a video of little Chogtaa, the little blue-eyed girl whose curative operation for dumbness and deafness made headlines in Ghana from February 2019, hearing for the first time.
Little Chogtaa’s mother Florence, through the Afi Antonio Foundation, managed to get help for her daughter in South Africa where doctors tried to get the little girl to hear and talk again.
