The current building is in a state of severe disrepair, characterized by inadequate ventilation, a leaky roof that has resulted in significant water infiltration, leading to the growth of mold and ant hills due to constant dampness. Moreover, the building receives insufficient natural light, as only one window is operational, and there is no artificial lighting, rendering it perpetually dark during daylight hours. Portions of the building are deteriorating, weakening its structural integrity. Additionally, the building has become a habitat for snakes, which have created passageways within it due to its weakened state, posing a significant safety hazard to the students. Kaabong, being a hot region, attracts reptiles due to the damp and decaying condition of the structure. Visual aids in the form of attached pictures provide further insight into these issues.
