Government Committed To Improving Infrastructure In Schools

Mr Prosper Douglas Bani,Mr Prosper Douglas Bani, the Chief of Staff, has launched the 60th anniversary celebration of the Kpando Senior High School, reiterating government’s commitment to vigorously improve and expand infrastructure in educational institutions throughout the country.

The theme for the celebration is: “Kpasec at 60: An opportunity for a holistic national educational reform?”
He said government had accordingly allocated a total of GH¢7.6 million for the completion of ongoing and new projects in the universities and polytechnics, to enable them to increase their intake in respect of the two streams of students out of SHS.

Mr Bani said government recognised the key role of teachers in the educational system and in committing resources to the sector stressing “…it is not only going to be about structures, but also teacher motivation, provision of libraries and ICT solution”.

He said: “At 60, Kpando Senior High School has matured but it also means that it is time to sit back, take stock of your failures and successes, plan and adopt corrective measures where necessary and forge ahead.”
The Chief of Staff congratulated all those, who have contributed to the success story of Kpasec, adding that “to the present administration, past students and the current crop of students, I urge you to keep the flame alight, build on what has been achieved so far and aim at chalking greater success in the years to come”.

Mr. Bani also appealed to the old students association, KOSA, to collaborate with the headmaster and the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to help raise the standards of the school.
Mr. Daniel Diboa, headmaster of the School, said Kpasec had over the years achieved a steadily good performance in academic and co-curricular activities.

He said the school was, however, challenged with accommodation for staff and students, an administration block, a modern library, water shortage and a vehicle for the day to day running of the school.
Mr. Nelson Aklamanu, President of KOSA, announced that the old students’ association had put up a 120 bed-dormitory block for the girls as their anniversary project.

He said prior to the actual celebration slated for November this year, the association had lined up several activities including, regional road shows/tours, anniversary lectures and the Volta Regional launch in September.

The launch, which was chaired by Major General Mordey, also outdoored and auctioned the anniversary cloth.
The launch was graced by the Paramount Chief and Queenmother of  Akpini Traditional Area, the Member of Parliament for Kpando, the Municipal Director of Education and representatives of sister schools, among others. – GNA
