Abor Senior High Technical gets new Board of Governors
Abor (V/R), Nov. 30, GNA- A reconstituted 14-member Board of Governors of Abor Senior High Technical School (ABORSCO) has been inaugurated at a colourful ceremony at the School at Abor in the Keta Municipality of the Volta Region.
The new Board was sworn in by Rev Fr. Stanley Azamety of St. Theresa Roman Catholic Church at Abor.
Mr. A.Y Jim-Fugar, the Out-gone Chairman of the Board, commended membership of the old Board for their sacrificial services to the School and assured the new Board of their readiness to assist whenever their services would be required.
“Seek assistance and advice from us whenever it would be needed and never hesitate to approach us, » Mr Jim-Fugar said.
Madam Enyonam Afi Amafuga, Volta Regional Director of Education, appealed to the new Board to tackle the numerous challenges facing the School, including, indiscipline among students, the downward trend in academic performance, the practice of occultism and inadequate supply of infrastructure.
She said it was regrettable that majority of boards of Senior High Schools (SHS) had over-stayed their tenure of office and stressed the need to reconstitute all Boards of Governors of second cycle institutions under the Ghana Education Service, that ended their tenure of office.
Mr Nelson Kporha, Chairman of the new Board, assured management of the School that the Board would build on past records to make ABORSCO one of the best in the country.
Mr. Raymond Letsah Glover, Headmaster of the School, expressed gratitude to the old Board members and elders of the town for their support over the past years towards the School’s many achievements.
He said the total student enrolment was 1,586 comprising 748 boys and 798 girls with teaching staff population of 101 and non-teaching staff, 33.
Parting gifts were presented to members of the old Board.
The Abor Senior High Technical School (ABORSCO) was established in September 1965 as a community-initiated secondary school through the efforts of Abor Youth Association (AYA), a development and welfare association and later absorbed into the public school system in 1982.
