The aftermath of the implementation of the Free Senior High School policy is getting worse as more students are being admitted to schools. Many schools are facing accommodation and classroom problems.
These problems are facing almost every school in Ghana to the extent that one of Ghana’s most prestigious Senior High schools is also passing through this problem.
The state of affairs inside Prempeh College is now nothing to write home about as the school is overwhelmed with crowding as a result of the Free Senior High School policy.
According to verified reports, the school has converted an uncompleted structure into a classroom housing about 10 combined classes in all made up of an average of about 50 students apiece.
The Headmaster of the college, Aaron Attuah Gyau lamented that should the contractor even come back to the site, the school will have a major problem having alternative space for the students currently studying in the uncompleted building.
“We don’t have facilities here, our students are still learning in an uncompleted, unroofed structure, and I have complained,” the headmaster lamented.
“It is even dangerous because we don’t have the bannisters and railings to prevent students from falling over, and if the contractor were to have returned to the site now, we wouldn’t know where to take students of about 10 classrooms and more,” he added.
Prempeh College for some time now has been on top of academic performance. For that matter, they won the 2015 edition of the National Science and Maths Quiz after beating Adisadel College and University Practice SHS in the final making them 3-time champions of the competition, making it the second school in Ghana to clinch a trophy for keeps.
They also won the National Robotics Inspired Science Education Challenge in 2014 and are the Only School from Ashanti Region to win the competition, the college is the only high school from the Ashanti region to have won the National Debate Championship in 2004.
The fact that the school is very good at delivering good academic performance, it very unfair if they should continue in their current state. The government has to make provisions to take care of their needs.
