ASUOGYAMAN:Headmistress appeals for completion of projects
|One of the projects|| |
Boso Senior High School appears to be among the very lucky schools to have raked in much benefit from the ’Better Ghana’ agenda.
The school has received four major infrastructure projects within the past three and a half years including 2-storey 14-unit classroom block at the cost of GHs685, 000, 400 capacity 2-storey girls’ dormitory block, 4-unit teachers’ quarters at GHs665,000 and 2-storey boys’ dormitory block which is at the foundation level.
The headmistress of the school, Mrs. Jeniffer Kpodo Gbesemete described the projects as unprecedented in the history of the school and commended government and the Ghana Education Trust Fund, GETFund for taking note of the infrastructure deficit of the school and responding to them accordingly.
She however noted that the first-three projects, the 2-storey 14-unit classroom block, 2-storey girls’ dormitory block and the 4-unit teachers’ quarters which are at various stages of completion are behind schedule for lack of regular flow of funds to enable the contractors to complete the projects.
She said the school is in critical need of the projects and appealed to the regional minister, Victor Smith who was at the school on a working visit to intervene to ensure that the GETFUNd secretariat honour certificates for the contractors to complete the structures.
The headmistress was confident teachers would be retained at the school when the teacher’s accommodation is completed; adding that lack of accommodation had contributed to a number of teachers leaving the school.
Mr. Victor Smith on his part promised to make some follow up to ensure early completion of the projects. He was delighted at the appreciation showed by the headmistress and added that the government commitment towards improving education in the country is unquestionable as evidence abounds.
