Stalled School Projects Need To Be Completed - Headmaster

Mr Pious Yaw Osei, the Headmaster in charge of Academic Ebenezer Senior High School, says stalled projects at the school need to be completed to enhance teaching and learning.

He said the school had about three projects, including a girls’ dormitory, a science laboratory and a seven-unit classroom block that had stalled at various stages of completion.

Mr Osei, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency on the sidelines of the commissioning of six renovated classrooms of the school by the Padua North America Association, said the girls dormitory, which is about eighty-five percent complete, started in 2008 while the science laboratory started in 2016.

‘‘The school is now soliciting from individuals who could donate doors and louvre blades to fix the windows,’’ he said.

The Assistant Headmaster said the school lacked adequate classrooms hence the need for the completion of the seven-unit classrooms.

He said many people were surprised that the school had not been made a boarding school because it had been in existence for almost eighty years, adding that it had boarding facilities when it was moved from its previous location.

Mr Osei appealed for boarding facilities to ensure safety and discipline because some of the students lived in rented rooms with no control and some were from far and had to commute for hours before getting to school.

The Assistant Headmaster applauded the Old Students’ Association for its continuous support to the school.

He said some old students of the school had repainted some of the classrooms to give it a facelift and had undertaken a tree planting exercise to restore its lost vegetation cover.

Mr Osei added that the old students had also begun refurbishing washrooms for the student.
