Headmaster and Students of Tatale D/A School erect a stunning Atakpaama quarters for new teachers

Headteacher of Tatale D/A Primary school, Alabami Nurideen Damba has led his student to construct a building structure for the accommodation of teachers posted to the community.

According to Mr. Nurideen, he was posted to Tatale in 2008 without accommodation, after graduating from school in 2008. A situation that compelled him to trek several kilometres on a bicycle from Zabzugu to Tatale every day to teach, an experience he described as unpleasant.

..." my first experience when I was posted here in 2008, was to spend 45mins on a bicycle from Zabzugu to Tatale every day, an experience I didn't want other teachers to go through", he said.

Seeing how demoralising the situation was in Tatale, Mr. Damba pledged to build quarters to accommodate teachers after some teachers refused to show up after finding out from him that there was no accommodation in the school. He then went on to propose the idea to the school PTA and they welcomed and accepted it.

Speaking on the motivation behind his initiative, Mr. Damba said that it was his past experienced as a newly posted trained teacher, the happiness of the students and that of the teachers as well.

The initiative has so far retained three teachers in the school with two of them accommodated in the newly constructed quarters. Other concerns raised by the headteacher was the poor nature of the community roads, lack of accommodation, lack of electricity and lack of potable water as well.

Mr. Damba also used the opportunity to appeal to the government to help them with, accommodation, furniture and textbooks.
