Mrs Annan-Wilberforce made this known at a Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) Meeting of the school at Agona Nyakrom.

According to the headmistress, COCOBOD has written to the school threatening to withdraw scholarships of two students due to poor academic performance.

She, therefore, appealed to cocoa parents not to struggle for scholarships for their children whose academic performances were not good.

The Headmistress said the school score 100 percent in the 2015 West Africa Senior Secondary Education Certificate (WASSEC).

She said more than 25 of the students gained admission into universities and other tertiary institutions.

Mrs Annan-Wilberforce said stringent measures have been put in place to prepare the final-year students for the 2016 WASSEC.

The measures, she said, were compelling students to attend prep and close at 2040 hours.

She stated that the school bus would convey non-boarding students to attend the studies free of charge, adding that the school would bear the fuel cost.

According to the Headmistress, final-year students would be made to attend classes on Saturdays as part of the measures to improve their performances.

Mr G .W. Ankomah Sey , Chairman of the PTA, said the Association was collaborating with the school authorities to enhance quality teaching and learning.

He disclosed that the two- storey 18-classroom block, being constructed by the PTA, would be completed this year.

According to the PTA Chairman, parents had agreed to pay a 30.00-Ghana-Cedi contribution, adding that this had been submitted to the Director-General of the GES through the appropriate channels.
