Government's Free Senior High School (SHS) and Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) programs have benefited nearly 2.5 million students, according to Reverend John Ntim Fordjour, Deputy Minister of Education and Member of Parliament for Assin South.
Since 2017, the government has expanded educational infrastructure, constructing more than 1,140 facilities nationwide including dining halls, dormitories, ICT centres, classroom blocks, and libraries for SHS and TVET schools.
The government's focus on girl-child education is aimed at bridging gaps between different communities and socioeconomic backgrounds. Reverend Fordjour encouraged SHS students to make the most of the government's investment by staying disciplined and dedicated to their studies.
Dr. Prempeh highlighted the importance of quality education in unlocking the potential of Ghanaian children and praised the newly inaugurated hostel for providing not only accommodation but also fostering a sense of community.
With this new facility, the challenges of inadequate accommodation at the school are expected to be addressed, allowing the girls to concentrate on their studies.
The Headmaster of the school, Rev. Canon Barnabas Kofi Okoh, expressed gratitude for the ongoing support from Dr. Prempeh and appealed for further assistance in enhancing the school's infrastructure.
