The Dhwo Twe Memorial High School, the only public institution serving majority of the residents on the Bushrod, is under threat from sea erosion. The School's Principal, Edwin Nagbe told the media that if there is no quick reaction from government, the school could be swept away.
"We need a quick response before it gets too late because the school's fence is down already, and the erosion is almost reaching the main structure of the building," Nagbe noted.
He emphasized the need for the Ministries of Land, Mines and Energy and Public Works to respond to the situation as it has become worrisome to the extent that he and others do not know what to do.
"World Bank's Former President, Paul Wolfves and Representative Edward Forh visited the school and saw the condition, but since then, nothing yet," Nagbe noted. About enrolment, he said the school was overcrowded as every resident on the island was interested in the institution.
"If the issue of the sea erosion is solved, than there is a need for the construction of an annex; but for now, all of the classes are fill to the extend we are rejecting enrolment," Nagbe lamented.
The D. Twe Memorial High School is one of the public schools constructed in the late 1960s during the regime of President William V. S Tubman. Others are the William V. S Tubman High; Zwedru, Voinjama and Harbel Multilateral High Schools.
