Headmaster of Tamale Senior High School appeals to government and old students to support the school with vehicles.
The Headmaster of Tamale Senior High School TAMASCO Rev Edward Azika has appealed to government and old students of the school to support the school with vehicles. The school being the oldest second cycle institution in the Northern Region currently has a 22 seater-bus on the road, this the headmaster says is woefully inadequate to serve the over three thousand students.
He said the school urgently needs a pick-up vehicle for administration assignment. Rev. Azika also appealed for the completion of the school’s fence wall that was started some few years ago due to a halt in PTA’s activities. He said their inability to complete the wall is causing insecurity and disciplinary problems for the school.
The headmaster made the appeal at launch of the school’s 70th anniversary in Tamale. The anniversary is on the theme; ‘’TAMASCO @70, leading Secondary education in northern Ghana’’.
Rev. Azika further mentioned the deplorable nature of some dormitories, science laboratories and other structures as some of the challenges facing the school. These challenges he indicates does not speak well of a school that has produced influential people in the country.
‘’These challenges do not fit a school that has produced professors, vice presidents, chief justices among others, I am therefore calling on old students and well-meaning citizens to come to our aid’’, he said. The launch was attended by the Vice President of Ghana-Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, government officials, CEOs, old students among others.
The Tamale Senior High school, TAMASCO is a public senior high school established in 1951. It is the first Second Cycle institution in Northern Ghana, currently with a population of over three thousand students.
