Vitting SHS cries for practical training tools



Students of Vitting Senior High/Technical School have decried the lack of practical training that would equip them with practical employable skills after the completion of their courses.

The school offers technical and vocational programmes, which are its core mandate but the students complain of lack of practical training that would equip them to set up their own shops after school.

Master Abdul Azziz Yakubu, a technical three student, made the complaint when the Chief of Vittin, Vittin-Lana, Naa Abdulai Sabonkudi, paid a familiarization visit to interact with staff and students of the school Thursday.

Naa Abdulai Sabonkudi assured the school of his support in fencing the compound, among other things. He used the opportunity to advise the students to study hard to improve upon the academic performance of the school.

He also encouraged the teachers to maximize the use of the little resources available to them. The head of the technical department, Madam Alice Wetah, appealed to the chief, NGOs and philanthropists to come to the aid of the school in the area of an assembly hall, as well as staff and classroom accommodation in order to improve upon discipline and the academic performance of the school.

On her part, the headmistress of the school, Mrs. Patricia Duneya, was not happy that Vittin Senior High/Technical School, sited in the Tamale Metropolis has been left out in infrastructural development.

She therefore asked for the inclusion of the school in any upcoming development to aid it to solve its classroom congestion problems.

Mrs. Duneya said the current 70 students per class situation does not augur well for effective teaching and learning.
