Inadequate accommodation for the increasing population of students, has compelled authorities of the Swedru School of Business (SWESBUS) to convert about six classroom blocks into dormitories for fresh students.
Mr. Samuel Afrifa Appiagyei, Headmaster of the School who made this known to the during an interaction with journalists at Agona Swedru said the authorities had no option than to arrive at that decision.
According Mr. Appiagyei, the continuous rise in the population with increasing existing structures had put the school in an extremely difficult situation.
He said some of the structures stated by the GETFUND and other donors, had not been completed, and therefore appealed urgently to the government and other corporate bodies to aid the school to overcome its challenges.
The headmaster said although the government was doing its best to ensure that adequate infrastructures were provided, the slow pace of the projects was affecting that good intention.
Mr Appiagyei, therefore, hoped that the construction work on those projects could be expedited for their early completion.
The headmaster said 80 of the students placed to the School by the computerized School Selection and Placement System CSSPS) were from outside the area.
Mr Appiagyei denied allegations that the school was charging unapproved fees, adding that the parents came to the school with bankers’ drafts already placed on the internet by GES.
He said the authorities were strictly complying with the government directives on new fees for the 2015/16 academic year, and that they would not contravene any laws of Ghana Education Service (GES).
