Three students were injured as a heavy downpour Monday night caused extensive damage to Berekum senior high school in the Brong Ahafo Region.

The rainstorm which has brought teaching and learning to a halt had the roofings of some of the school's bungalows, dining hall, kitchen and classrooms ripped off. The headmaster's office was also slightly affected.

The incident which happened around supper time left three students injured, whom the headmaster, Ebenezer Kwegyir Ayensu told Joy News' Precious Semevor are responding to treatment. 

The school which serves as a WAEC examination centre will not suffer according to the headmaster, as today's French paper is going on as planned.

In a related development, private individuals and other schools have also lost properties running into thousand of cedis. 

The headmaster is appealing to the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), NGO's, philanthropists, foreign embassies and members of the diplomatic corps to come to the school's aid.
