Ghana Senior High School Board inaugurated
Koforidua, June 5, GNA - A 14-member Board of Governors for the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASS) in Koforidua was inaugurated on Friday with a call on them to champion the cause of discipline to impact on academic standards for the school.
The board members included Nana Akwasi Adjei Boateng, immediate past Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), New Juaben and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of KAMA Industries, Mr Michael Agyekum, both representing the old students on the board for a three-year term.
Mr Lawrence Agyemang, Eastern Regional Coordinator of Secondary Education who inaugurated the board, said the inauguration was in conformity with the Ghana Education Service (GES) acts and regulations.
He said the board therefore assumed full management responsibility of the school and urged them to build upon the achievements of the old board and use their connections to improve upon the school infrastructure.
The former Board Chairman, Mr G.M Osei, said the board had worked tirelessly to change the status of the school during their tenure and thanked the school authorities for the constant rapport they maintained with them that made their work easy.
He pledged their support to the new board and expressed the hope that with the calibre of personalities on the board, they would be able to transform the school.
Mrs Rosemond Bampo, the Headmistress of the school, said the school was transformed to the point that it had become a place of choice both in the region and the nation.
She mentioned that during the term of the outgoing board, GHANASS produced the best General Arts candidate in Ghana in 2001 “a feat which according to the West Africa Examination Council was very rare” and since then recorded improvements culminating in 100 percent passes last year.
