The authorities of a Presbyterian Senior High School (SHS) at Adeiso in the Upper West Akyem District have appealed to government and other stakeholders to provide the academic facility with adequate infrastructure and logistics.
Mr Bismarck Gyau, Headmaster of the school, told the Ghana News Agency that with a student population of 1,350 and staff strength of 68 there should justify the provision of staff bungalows in order to effect discipline on campus. “Despite government’s interventions in the area of human resources, the school needs more infrastructural and staff development for quality education delivery,” he emphasised.
He said most of the teachers stay outside campus.
Mr Gyau asked government to improve on facilities of the various educational institutions and pay more attention to less endowed schools in the allocation of resources.
He appealed to the Ghana Education Trust Fund and the District Assembly to ensure the completion of abandoned assembly and dining hall projects and the refurbishment of the Information, Communication and Technology Centre of the school.
He indicated that through the support of the Parent-Teacher Association, the school is constructing a two-storey boy’s dormitory and called government support to help complete it on time.
Mr Gyau said the school raised funds last year to undertake a number of projects including construction of a fence wall and the expansion of the girl’s dormitory.
He said although the school is relatively new, it had performed creditably in the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination and the West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
Mr Gyau thanked the Akuapem Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church for donating a four-wheel cross country vehicle to the school to facilitate his work.
