Accra, Nov. 7, GNA- The Old Students Association of Ebenezer Senior High School in Dansoman in the Ablekuma West Municipality, has launched a GH¢5 million Regeneration Project in Accra.
This is to improve on the school’s infrastructure and create a more conducive teaching and learning environment for students and staff to enhance their academic performance.
The project, which is expected to commence in 2021, will span a period of five years and aims at uplifting the current profile of the school, particularly in the area of infrastructure and academic performance as a whole.
Speaking at the official launch in the school premises in Accra, Mr Lloyd Evans,  Global President of the Association, said the Free Senior High School (FSHS) programme had added to the already existing challenges that we’re facing most second cycle schools, and Ebenezer Senior High in particular.
He said there was, therefore, the need for past students to initiate projects that would help address some of these challenges and meet the demanding needs of students and staff of the school.
Some major projects to be undertaken, he said, included ensuring the completion the school’s Visual Arts Department, improving and equipping the various science labs, visual arts and the Home Economics Departments and rehabilitating and renovating rundown structures such as washrooms, among others.
Others are the redeveloping of the walk and driveways, repainting of all structures within the school, creating of a website for old students to enhance communication and sharing of ideas among them, renovating of various directional signposts, creating of storage and archival facilities, clearing, greening and beautification of the school’s compound.
Established in 1941, the school, currently, has a student population of  1,719 of which 974 are males and 745 are females, and with a total teaching staff of 98 and 28 non-teaching staff.
Currently, the school has two storey Complex Administration blocks, two 18-unit classroom blocks one six-unit science block and an Assembly Hall.
However, a number of GETFUND funded projects including a girl’s dormitory started in 2008, a one-storey seven-unit classroom block commenced in 2012 and a science laboratory block which began in 2016, have all stalled.
Mr Evans called for a review of the Free SHS policy to address challenges that had so far emerged three years after its implementation.
« No policy is sacrosanct, every policy has its implementation challenges and it is through reviews that these challenges can be addressed to sustain the implantation of the policy, » he added.
He appealed to the government to endeavour to complete the numerous stalled projects started years ago, saying: « unless the run-down environment is corrected, the students and academic team will undoubtedly be depressed and unable to give of their best ».
He also called on students, both present and past, to contribute their quota to ensure that the objectives of the project materialised.
Ms Anastasia Afua Konadu, Headmistress of the school in an interview with Ghana News Agency (GNA), on the side-line of the launch commended the Association for such a laudable initiative.
She reiterated the need for government to fast-track the completion of the various projects that had stalled, to address the infrastructure deficit and meet the demanding needs of the ever growing students population of the school.
Ms Konadu further appealed to all past students, as well as corporate organisations to come to the aid of the school in any way they could, to complement efforts of government in addressing the myriad problems it faced.
