Mr Amoah commended the school for placing first on two occasions in the Performance Monitoring Test, in the District.
Mr Joseph Yeboah, the Headteacher, asked the Ghana Education Service and the District Assembly, to provide the school with additional classrooms to cater for the junior secondary school students. Mr Hassan Aziz, the Deputy Regional Manager of Muslim Mission Schools, expressed the need for Muslims to embrace secular education alongside Arabic education.
