Wa, Dec 31, GNA - Wa Secondary School has, for the first time since the inception of the senior secondary school system, scored 100 percent in the SSS certificate examinations.
Mr Moses Donneyong, the Headmaster of the school who said this at a dinner dance organized by the Wa Secondary Old Boys Association, said although the school had adequate teachers it was extremely difficult for it to capture academic glories due to lack of discipline. He said out of 276 students presented for the examinations, 87 of them had all the eight passes, 75 with seven passes, 45 with six passes among others and only five students got between two and three passes. Mr Donneyong commended the teachers for their extra efforts and that the school authority would continue to instil discipline in the students so as to come out with better results.
Mr Abudu Sakara, the Secretary of the association, said there was the need to organize funds to support their Alma Mater since the government alone could not provide all the needs of the school.
He said the association would embark on an educational campaign that would make the school attractive to the public and called on all members to remain committed to the course of the school.
Mr Sakara said they had prioritised the fence wall of the school and would work assiduously to achieve that goal before the end of 2006. Mr. Solomon A. Dansieh, the Chairman of the association, said members of the old boys have been levied to sponsor the school's forthcoming speech and prize-giving day and to contribute a bag of cement each towards the construction of the fence wall.
Mr Seidu Mohammed Saani, on behalf of the World Bank Book Project, presented 10 boxes of books to the headmaster of the school. He said the World Bank Book Project has presented a total of 40 boxes of books to other schools at an estimated cost of 60 million cedis.
