Rainstorm rips up Bornikorpe D/A Basic School structure roofing

Pupils and staff of the Bornikope D/A Basic School in the Ada West District have been left with no classroom structure for teaching and learning after a rainstorm ripped up the roof of the school structure.

The Monday morning rainstorm also led to the collapse of a wooden structure being used by the Junior High Department of the school, as well as the ripping up the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) church auditorium in the same community.
