Nsaba Secondary School gets new Board of Governors

GNA

Agona Nsaba, March 31, GNA - A 14-member Board of Governors for the Nsaba Presbyterian Secondary School has been inaugurated with Mr Alex Buabeng, a legal practitioner as its chairman. Speaking at the function, Mr John Kwesi Agyabeng, Agona District Chief Executive (DCE), expressed concern about the placement of the school in the senior secondary schools' examination results published recently by the Ghana Education Service. He charged the new board members to ensure that the school's academic record, which was enviable in the past, but was now fading fast, was reversed, to create a new image for the school and the district.

Mr Agyabeng asked the school authorities to direct all their problems to the District Assembly for resolution to enhance the academic performances of the students. He urged Mr Sam Kwamena Ansah, Headmaster of the school, not to be discouraged about criticisms, adding that if they were constructive, the criticisms should be accepted in good faith to help in the school's upliftment and development. The DCE called on the teaching and non-teaching staff to co-operate with the headmaster and the new board members to raise the standard of education in the school.

Rev S.K. Mensah, General Manager of Presbyterian Schools, urged the new board members to interact constantly with the tutors so that they could know the problems facing them, and see how best to help find lasting solutions to them. He charged members of the board to help maintain discipline in the school, adding that without moral discipline the students would not excel in their examinations.

Rev Mensah commended the Headmaster for the efforts at improving the infrastructural development in the school, and asked all stakeholders to come to the aid of the school by providing some of its basic needs. In a welcoming address, Mr Ansah said since the emphasis was on education because it was the master key for development, stakeholders in education should look into its present and future prospects. Mr Ansah appealed to the new board members to help the school to find lasting solutions to the problems of HIV/AIDS, sex, drugs, laziness, examination malpractices and other acts of indiscipline confronting the students.
