The forty two year old CAC grammar school Ondo in Ondo state has become a shadow of itself as the school hall, classrooms ,staff rooms have become dilapidated, calling for serious government attention.

Apart from the buildings, the roofs, ceilings ,doors of classrooms and walls have all gone bad with the ceiling almost caving in on the students.

Despite the poor condition of the infrastructure, students still learn in the facilities which obviously and evidently pose threat to their lives.

The dilapidated condition of the school  has now made the buildings to become  safe havens for reptiles such as Lizards and snakes.

Another sad thing about CAC grammar school Ondo is that majority of the classrooms with about thirty students in each have just few chairs this often  make majority of the students to be on their feet while having classes.

Some of the students, Tosin Adeniran and Bola Olufunso said the condition of their school and lack of modern learning facilities were no doubt impacting negatively on their learning process.

They lamented that the situation was getting worse by the day as no help was  in sight for the rehabilitation of the forty two year old building which has chucked out many prominent Nigerians.

While stressing that learning under the current condition of the school was not a pleasant experience, the students called on concerned authorities as well as highly spirited individuals to come to their aid by helping them to fix the decayed infrastructure.

Also speaking, one of the teachers who  spoke on the condition of anonymity noted that teaching and learning in the school during rainy season was always a harrowing experience.

The Principal of the school, Mr Emmanuel Akinfemisoye appealed to both Ondo state government and philanthropists to assist the school in terms of provision of befitting structures for the students to learn under a condusive atmosphere so that there hope of becoming leaders in future would not be dampened.
