Two hundred and fifty  Junior High School graduates who gained admission into the Bomaa Senior High School in the Tano North District, failed to report to the school during the beginning of the  2013/2014 academic year.

Mrs Doris Naana Marfo, newly appointed headmistress of the school who made this known on Tuesday, said the students were admitted under the Computerised Selection Placement System.


The headmistress was interacting with Mrs Freda Prempeh, Member of Parliament (MP) for Tano North, when the MP paid a visit to the school.

Mrs Marfo said the school was facing a number of challenges which urgently needed to be addressed to enable it function as a second cycle institution.

She said the administration block, dining hall, staff accommodation, library, kitchen, sick bay and boreholes, were some of the immediate needs of the school.

Mrs Marfo said it was regrettable that a classroom and an administration block which were being constructed by the Ghana Education Trust Fund have been abandoned for years.

She appealed to government to upgrade the school, adding that when converted into a boarding institution, enrollment will increase and performance improved.

Mrs Prempeh promised to construct a borehole for the school, and donated 100 bags of cement to it.

She urged the District Assembly to provide the needed infrastructure for the school to enable it to function efficiently and effectively.

Mrs Prempeh entreated the teachers to re-double their effort to help improve on the academic performance of the students, and appealed to non-governmental organizations, as well as  Bomaa citizens resident home and abroad to come to the aid of the school.
