La Presby students studying on cement blocks rescued by McDan CEO

The Chief Executive Officer of McDan Shipping,Daniel Makorley,has pledged to donate furniture to form one Classrooms reported to have lacked furniture at the La Presby Senior High School.

The students were reported to have been sitting on cement blocks and wooden planks.

The CEO also indicated that furniture will be provided for teachers as well as students using cement blocks as furniture.

Mr. Makorley said this gesture was his own way of giving back to the society that developed him.

Speaking on Citi FM,an Accra based radio station News file ,the CEO has stated that he was heart broken when he first heard of the news and so decided to cancel his schedule to visit the school.

“It is serious. I really don’t have words to explain it. When I heard your news, it broke my heart a little. I had a lot of things to do, but had to cancel to be here this morning [Tuesday] to assess the situation,” he told Citi News.

“I didn’t know the extent of the problem, but from what I am seeing right now, it is serious. It’s the middle of the city and kids are sitting on blocks learning. Some are virtually standing, and you can also see that the classrooms are over crowded.”

He said he was going to contract a furniture shop to start producing tables and chairs for them immediately.

“This is what I can also do to help my community. I can’t do much,” Mr. Makorley said, adding that it was about time the private sector stepped in to aid some of the schools in need “and pay back to the society.”

“It’s heartbreaking that we will see kids like this in the middle of the city. This is not a village. Its right in the middle of the city and they are sitting on blocks learning.”

Prior to this development, the headmaster of the School was interdicted by the Ghana Education Service when he was reported to have told students to pay some monies to get new furniture for the school.
