Excessively damaged school in Erseka
The “Papa Kristo Negovani” primary school in Erseka will welcome 600
students this September, a number that is increasingly growing with the
return of emigrants from Greece.
The school has several problems in its infrastructure. The academic year has engaged all teachers who are able to keep running a school that has not been repaired for several years.
Despite their efforts, the paint has not covered the humidity stains in the walls, while the heating system is almost entirely destroyed and the children are obliged to take their lessons in winter in very low temperatures, which are very common for this town.
This is the only primary school of this southeastern town, and it also welcomes students from some surrounding villages, such as Starje, Rehova, Tac, Pepellash, etc.
Although they hesitate, they admit that the school needs reconstruction, especially in the roof, but also for the heating system. Last winter made teachers and students face a very difficult situation, even obliging them to close the school for several days.
