Ms Fameye Esuande Ashun, the Headmistress of Yaa Asantewaah Girls Senior High School, has commended President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his relentless efforts at bringing the Free Senior High School Policy into fruition.

At a Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) meeting of the School at Abuakwa near Kumasi, she said as long as government had absorbed almost every payable fee for first-year students and providing free lunch for continuing students, the onus was on parents to provide the basic learning needs of their wards such as calculators and text books.

Ms Ashun said for the Free SHS Policy to be successful, both the Government and parents must fulfil their responsibilities and urged the students to take their studies seriously.

She advised parents against giving mobile phones to their wards to school adding that the Management of the School considered the use of mobile phones in school as an offence.

Ms Eshun advised parents to use available channels provided by the school to address all grievances and avoid using radio stations and the press to address their concerns.

Touching on the PTA 400-capacity dormitory project, she said progress of work was slow because of financial constraints and urged parents to honour their pledges to enable the project committee to finish the work on time.

The Headmistress expressed gratitude to parents who had earlier redeemed their pledges and made donations towards the project, especially the Old Girls Association of the School.
