Our only stretch of road is deteriorating- GHANASCO headmistress


Authorities of Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) have commended government for its effort in helping the school with additional infrastructure.

 According to them, even though there has been some improvement in infrastructure, GHANASCO still needs a lot, particularly an assembly hall and work on the fence wall which has been halted needs to continue.

GHANASCO was established in 1960 with a student population of seventy without girls at the beginning. Later, the first girl to join GHANASCO came from Yaa Asantewaa Girls Secondary School in Kumasi.

The student girls have risen to one third of the student population in GAHANASCO. But the Headmistress of the school, Asobanyire Mary Dan-Braimah says the student population did not match with the infrastructure.

The P.T.A and GetFund’s support to the school with classroom accommodation has risen to 3 story classroom blocks, 2-unit twelve classroom block, and a six-unit classroom block four years ago to improve congestion created by the four year intake group.

The increasing number of girls according to the headmistress compelled GHANASCO to convert abandoned teachers bungalows to girls’ dormitories.

Madam Asobanyire Mary thanked Parent Teacher Association of GHANASCO for their support in providing the school with 120-bed girls’ dormitory in 2008 to ease the congestion in the one story girls’ dormitory block.

The headmistress said with the addition of new dormitory, it creates access for secondary education for the youth in the North and beyond.

 Madam Asobanyire in appreciating government’s efforts, appealed to the first lady to assist the school to improve electricity situation and the deteriorating road network.

The drainage system is in bad condition due to erosion which is destroying the only stretch of road from the entrance of GHANASCO to the school eastern part.  

She also appealed for an incineration to provide decent disposal of tissues to save the drainage system of the new girls’ dormitory.
