The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of Dormaa Senior High School, has held its annual general meeting and exhorted parents to take keen interest in the education of their children.
Several speakers including Mr Chou-En-Lai Paul Ankomah, the PTA Chairman and the school's headmistress, Madam Margaret Okyere–Pomaah reiterated the need for parents, teachers and students to collaborate to achieve academic excellence.
Mr Ankomah said the PTA was prepared to help instil discipline in the students.
He announced that the PTA procured 450 pieces of furniture and 48 wooden doors for the school in 2008, while a PTA-sponsored girls' dormitory was nearing completion.
Madam Okyere-Pomaah said student population of the school had increased to 1,553 with 529 of them being girls.
She said Mathematics and English language remained problematic papers for the students in the West Africa Senior Schools Certificate Examinations but added stakeholders were holding meetings to address the problem.
The headmistress urged parents to encourage their children to desist from negative practices that had the potential to tarnish the school's image and ruin their future.
