Government High School (G..H.S) Njikwa is located in Njikwa Sub-Division in Momo Division of North West region of Cameroon.It is a general education institution offering mainstream arts and science subjects at both ordinary and advance levels for both boys and girls.
GHS Njikwa school Library is underfunded and has several identified problems such as a shortage of current books and other materials, parked with outdated texbooks which betray children when we put outdated information on our shelves, Old books do more harm than good because Outdated books give students misinformation, particularly in science, insufficient time to spend with students, and a lack of time to plan with teachers. Structural defficiencies like lack of computers, reading desks, poor lighting and above all lack of space for students and teachers.
Being able to see and handle apparatus adds meaning that is impossible to convey through the standard, dry 'chalk and talk' in the classroom. The situation is very severe when it come to G.H.S Njikwa where Hundreds of students are failing to study science to a high standard after being turned off the subject by shortage of teachers, lack of equipment, and underfunded science laboratory with outdated chemicals, sometime no chemicals to carry out simple science experiment.
There are many challenges that are hindering the smooth running of GHS Njikwa academic activities. Some of these challenges include: infrastructure like poor and inadequate classrooms, overcrowded classrooms, no building, poor sanitary facilities for teachers, administrators and students, chronic shortage of essential teachers in extremely key or core subjects, lack of school benches, poor school librtary, science laboratory, and late registration by parents and students.
