Chairman Wontumi has been tasked by the chief and the people with removing all of the chief's equipment from the site.President Nana Addo Dankwa Akkuffo Addo started this six-unit classroom block in 2019.The development of the school block was intended to satisfy the school's infrastructural needs.Students now learn under an open canopy shed, according to a visit to the school.

Several requests have been made to the Atwima kwanwoma district Assembly, according to several people but have not achieved any results.Residents who spoke on the condition of anonymity expressed their dissatisfaction with the situation, which they say is harming their academic performance.
