Assin Darmang (C/R) April 11, GNA- The maiden Board of Governors, for Adankwaman Secondary Commercial school, at Assin Darmang in the Central Region, was inaugurated at the weekend to accelerate the effective and proper development of the educational facility. The school, which was established in 1983 with a current student population of 257, lacks basic facilities like electricity, potable water, well-stocked library, teaching staff and students accommodation. Mr Johnson Omudie, Assin District Director of Education asked the 15-member Board, not to be scared by the present poor conditions at the school, but endeavour to work hard to ensure that the requisite teaching and learning environment was established.
He cautioned the students against the use of narcotic drugs, which he said had "become a passion" among students.
Mr Solomon Anyan, Assin South District Planning Officer, announced that the District Assembly had lined up a number of development projects, including extension of electricity to the school as part of a face-lift programme. The Headmaster, Mr Joseph Ellis Wright, said members of the Board were carefully chosen on the basis of their ability to perform and expressed the hope that they would justify the confidence reposed in them by being committed and dedicated in the discharge of their duties.
Mr Garth Oppong Kwakye, Headmaster of Assin Manso Secondary School and a citizen of the area, who chaired the function called for community partnership and support in the affairs of the School.
