SHS Education: Students of Odoben SHS study under Trees due to Inadequate Infrastructure

The introduction of the Free Senior High School Policy and its implementation has been of great importance to the Ghanaian populace most especially to the New Patriotic Party as a signal of implementing a major 2016 campaign promise.

The implementation though  great, hasn’t taken into  consideration the available space to cater for the huge intake of students.

A situation that has led to continues criticism of the policy by major stakeholders.

The  Odoben Senior High School in the Central Region has compelled beneficiaries of the Free SHS policy to study under trees and section of Students using their dinning halls as classrooms.

Most affected students are in the  general arts and visual arts departments.

Odoben Senior High School, which started in 1991 as a community day school, has suffered many infrastructural challenges.

According to report by Classfm,School authorities said a school bus and a three unit classroom block built in 2015 under the Secondary Education Improvement program were the only government projects they can boast of.

The Chairman of the Parents Teachers Association (PTA), Stephen Buasare, noted that infrastructural problems had affected the progress of the school.

“… Most of the buildings here were constructed by the PTA, we need more buildings, government should come to our aid,” he appealed.

Headmistress of the school, Mrs Phyllis Arthur Simpson, also appealed to government to build more infrastructure at the school to enhance smooth academic work.
