wpid-SHS.jpgGhanaians, especially the youth, have been advised to cultivate the habit and spirit of voluntarism, advocacy, health education to serve their communities and the nation at large.

In addition, they should volunteer to plant and nurture a tree to make their communities and Ghana a Green nation to live in.

Mr George Oitsin, National Coordinator for Global Environmental Facility, an affiliate of UNDP, made the call at the fourth speech and prize-giving day celebration of Bisease Senior High School.

Mr Oitsin, who was a volunteer staff of the school forty-four years ago, paid glowing tribute to the founding fathers of the school, ?saying the little seed sown, has become a mighty tree today?.

Commenting on the theme, ?Community SHS and Community Development?, Mr Oitsin said the knowledge that individuals acquire in schools, must benefit the society, contribute to the development of the society and the nation as whole.

He noted that the reversal of the Senior Secondary School education to three years had brought many challenges to the Community-based SHSs.

He said Ghana as a global village needs a united front to develop its manpower to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development goals in ensuring universal education for all.

The headmaster of the school, Mr Mark Mensah, said all the 873 candidates the school presented in the 2013 West Africa School Certificate Examinations (WASCE) scored hundred percent with good grades.

He said the school?s classrooms are congested, and need about 12 more classrooms, a modern Assembly hall, dining hall and kitchen and other infrastructure.

The MP for the area, Mr Ato Forson, a product of the school, and a deputy minister for Finance, assured the school that government will meet some of the needs outlined by the headmaster. GNA
