Plato Academy, Bolgatanga

This school was previously known as “Firm Foundation”. (You can read earlier posts on this website by clicking on the firm-foundations tag.) Following a presentation by Dr. Anafu at our 2014 AGM, a grant of £1400 was sent for work on the building.  Jo Hallett visited this privately-run primary school in June 2016 and received a very warm welcome.  It is situated in the middle of many other buildings on the edge of Bolgatanga.  Seven or eight classes are based in ground floor rooms, in reasonable repair.  The classes were very well ordered and clearly good teaching was going on.  Jo was impressed at the level of the pupils’ reading ability.  The GSA grant to renovate the building was much appreciated and had been put to good use.  The school is now constructing a second floor but progress is slow
