Senior Housemaster’s Message

Once again it is time for the Senior Housemaster to render account for steward ship as “the Dean of student affairs”. The word ‘perfect’  is met to be a far get for people but in actual fact, the best, one can achieve is to be nearer to perfection. I would not therefore deceive the public by saying: there is a perfect discipline in the school. I am rather; proud to say that, discipline in Great Akuss has improved drastically. Hardly, does one see students roaming in town or in the market during contact hours of teaching and learning.  Loitering around the dormitories when classes are in session has been reduced to the minimum, if not eliminated completely. This became possible partly due to the construction of the school gate construction of the fence wall and the co-operation effects of the teachers and the Student Task Force. I am hopeful; the P.T.A will also help extend the fence wall to keep the few recalcitrant students on campus. On sanitation, the school has taken a step forward with the provision of a refuse container by Zoom lion. In addition, Zoom lion also teamed up with the school in spraying the school compound with insecticides and weedicides to control mosquitoes, reptiles and insects, which make life unbearable to students especially in the night. We are grateful to the school authorities and the Offinso North District Assembly for their enormous to improve the sanitation in the school. Just like Oliver Twist always asking for more we also do ask for two containers to commensurate the population of the school.

With the introduction of rack suits and sleeveless vests, wearing of non-prescribed pullovers is now a thing of the past. Another area of interest is the introduction of Friday wear . This gives students the opportunity to change their dressing code once a week. Usage of mobile phones on campus is one of the areas that little has been achieved, even though random searching is always done in the dormitories from time to time for non prescribed dress code and mobile phones As the school authorities are gathering ideas on how to fix this problem, I want to appeal to parents to desist from giving mobile phones to their wards to be used in school.

On behalf of the Senior Housemaster and able Housemasters/ Housemistress, I wish to express our profound gratitude to all and sundry, especially the Assisstant Headmistress (Domestic) for moving the school to a higher level as far as discipline is concerned I wish everybody a happy and prosperous new academic year. May the Almighty God bless us?

S.R.C Patron’s Report

To God be the glory for the great things he has done for me throughout my three years in office as the S.R.C Patron of this institution. It has not been easy but with the advice from my Headmaster, Mr. Agyapong – Ntra and some constructive criticisms from my well-wishers, I have been able, in collaboration with the various councils over the period achieved a lot of the school. Until recently that the S.C.R dues was increased to GHc 1.00, we never relied on the school for anything. We rather embarked on sponsorship drivers which we always succeeded through the influence of the Headmaster even though our targets were not always met. There are some achievements that cannot be mentioned but some can also be mentioned.

Under the leadership of the President, Prosper Ntsri-Wells, the S.R.C donated to the school a Notice board that is second to none in the region. This came to make dissemination of information easier. It was realized that when parents and guardians visited the school, they did not get to places to sit to have chats with their wards, and tutors also, during their leisure periods hardly find places to relax. Realizing this, the S.R.C under the leadership of President, Akorli- Galley Dennis, donated to the school, ten modern visitors’ seats. Finally, upon hearing my colleague tutors complaining bitterly of their tiredness in using chalk. I advised the current President, Tawiah Thomas to make it his priority to provide the school with White-Marker Boards. We discussed it with our Headmaster who when others were discouraging us rather encouraged us and gave us his blessings. We are not bragging but within just a month after our discussions, the S.C.R has been able to provide thirty (38) White-Marker Boards for thirty-eight classrooms which has really made teaching and learning quite easier and interesting.

I wish I could do more but as the saying goes, “Wishes are not horses”. I will at this point thank the Almighty God for the knowledge and guidance He gave me throughout these years. Many, I know were those who wished otherwise.

My second gratitude goes to the Headmaster, Mr. Akwasi Aygapong –Ntra for his advice and everything. Next is, to Mr. Joseph Nyame for his advice and uncountable contributions throughout these years and also tutors who go in one way or the other to make me strong. Finally, to my dear executives and to all my lovely students. I say, may God richly bless you all?
