Bambulu’s School Days


Available on backorder

Bambulu’s School Days, first serialised in The Mirror, Ghana’s most popular weekly, is the memoir of a Ghanaian School child who had a very uncongenial and difficult childhood because his parents were separated shortly after his birth. He, however, got over that initial puerile traumatic experience; which was, mostly, triggered by his father and stepmother.

Little Paul, later known as Bambulu, really had a tough and rugged beginning but with a little twist in fortune he, eventually, reconciled with his mother.

Thanks to his mother’s determination, complimented by an uncle’s generosity, Paul was able to gain admission to the Senior Secondary School. Nonetheless, bullying by senior students, strange teaching methods by some teachers and others do not make life in the Senior Secondary School as attractive as Bambulu would have expected.

The novel is a rich discovery of the Ghanaian Senior Secondary School system in the 1970s as seen through the unbiased eyes of an innocent school boy.
