The cost of a three classroom project at Presbyterian School Bujong, Bamendakwe village has overwhelmed the PTA, school administration, parish and Christians of that congregation causing them to openly appeal for support from former pupils of the schools, the general public and people of good will.

Under the guide of the parish pastor, the Rev. Titatang kingsley, the Parents Teacher Association, some people of goodwill and Christians of the congregation, they have spend over 3 millon frs to construct the three standard classrooms, two of which are convertible into a multipurpose hall, from the foundation to the roof level, and have even started the roofing process when they run short of resources.

“We’ve pushed our Christians, parents and some local benefactors to far to reach this level, yet the project is still looking at us. This is a poor community and there is a limit to how far you can push them” the Rev. Titatang Kingsley told this reporter.

“That is why we are extending our appeal to all and in particular, sons and daughters of this village and former pupils of the school” he added.

Work still pending at the site includes the roofing, plastering, fitting of knockings and ceilings, the floors, windows and doors and putting up of black back and subsequently the benches, tables and chairs. They school authorities believe the work is about 40% completed and will accept any assistance in the form of cash, material and labour.

According to Mrs Tanue Esther Abe, the head teacher of the school who also doubles as chairperson of PC Ntenefor and the Bujung Congregation, PS Bujong started in 1964 as an annex to PS Bamendakwe, today the school has an enrollment of 427 pupils, the biggest in the managerial area and second only to GS Army Camp Up Station in Bamenda I Council Area. The school has a total of 10 teachers and also operates a nursery section. PS Bujong has passed out thousands of pupils over the years including a majority of the elites of Bamendakwe village.

Beside this, the congregation has its hands full with another project, the construction of a church house at PC Ntenefor. Here, the dwindling mission station is in dire need of a Sheppard to guide them and lead the way forward.

The Rev. Titatang Kingsley said they have already raised the sum of 1.2 million Frs that would be used to construct a church house with a capacity of 1500 places to replace the old church that is already to small. They have already started with the laying of foundation blocks and intend to raise some 40 pillars that would hold the structure and the roof for gradual completion of the work. The church would be constructed on a piece of land recently acquired, close to the old church.

But the Rev. Titatang says all has not been rosy for them. As soon as they excavated the land, an imposter appeared from abroad, claiming that the land belongs to him and causing the administration to place an injunction on any construction work on the piece of land. This however has been sorted out, with the imposter backing down.
