The Headmistress of the Topease Methodist Basic “A and B” Schools in the West Akim Municipality has expressed concern about increasing reports of students indulging in hard drugs, alcoholism and sexual promiscuity and has called for concerted efforts to address the trend.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency in the school at Topease, Madam Rose B. Otchere, called on parents and school authorities to work together to help students to use their study periods judiciously.

She said the performance of students in the BECE had declined in recent years and blamed the trend partly on lack of quality infrastructure and equipment in the schools.

Mad Otchere appealed to the citizens to support the government to improve infrastructure and make conditions favourable for quality education. GNA
