Mammobi Prisons Primary
Introduction To Mammobi Prisons Primary
The Prisons primary school which is now Mammobi Prisons Primary school was first located within the compound of St James prisons Camp otherwise known as Borstal Institute. The school was originally established primarily to educate the wards of the officers of Ghana Prisons Services working at the facility. It was managed by Prisons authority and teaches were officers of the Prisons service. Later the school was absorbed by government and moved to its present location to serve the larger community. One of the major reasons for this change was because of the regular transfers of officers and their families.At present the school has 2 streams which feed two separate JHS schools. Together with the JHS they form a cluster with a population of about 700 pupils and 36 teachers. With the abolishing of the shift system the school runs a single shift starting from 8:00am to 2:00pm for the primary section while the JHS close at 3:00pm. Three years ago the school started a kindergarten section. The Pentecost church situated on the compound serves as an assembly hall and is also used for workshops and other activities when the need arises.
