Past students to rescue ‘Some Senior High’ SOSEC

 Past students of Some Senior High School (SOSEC) in the Ketu South District have resolved to renovate the School and provide it with modern facilities.

The school, which will turn 50 next year, lacks a decent administration block, science and computer laboratories and an assembly hall.

It has no teachers’ bungalow, with the housemistress on campus somewhat sharing a dormitory with students.

Close to 1,000 students of the school, boarders, depend on a borehole for water and use a crudely constructed pavilion as a dining hall, which they patronize in turns due to its small size.

Mr Mark Adade, President of the Old Students Association at the launch of the 50th anniversary, celebration of the School on Wednesday said the past students decided to fix the infrastructural challenge to dignify the school.

He said it was unfortunate that though population of students was increasing yearly, no attempt had been made to improve facilities in the school.

‘It is unfortunate our school has nothing to show in 50 years though it is producing quality human resource,’ Mr Adade said.

He said, ‘We have offered some assistance as individuals and groups but now, we rising as old students for greater impact on the school.’

Mr Adade said in a few months, work would begin on modifying and beautifying the entrance of the school, befitting its status.

He said the Old Students Association had also committed itself to the construction of science and computer laboratories to enhance academic performance.

Mr Adade said an award scheme would also be established for students yearly to inspire academic excellence.

Mr Albert Agbesi Wornyo, Guest Speaker at the anniversary launch, noted that the school was so deprived that its name sounded negative in people’s mind and challenged stakeholders to restore glory to the school.

Mr Kwamigah Ahafia, Headmaster of the school said the 50 years administration block has leakages, inadequate space, decaying props, poor ventilation and outdated electrical wiring system.

‘Hmm, problems of the administration block, for example, are metaphorically competing with the living mice and cockroaches that always resist any quit order,’ he said.

Mr Mawusi Alex Buadi, acting Volta Regional Director of Education said irrespective of the challenges, SOSEC established itself as a cradle of education in its own right among Senior High Schools in the region.

He asked the stakeholders to think outside the box and come out with innovative ideas to transform the school.

The 50th anniversary of the School would be marked in July next year on the theme, ‘Fifty Years in the Life of Some Senior High School: The Impact on National Development, the challenges and the prospects.’ GNA
