All the 500 students admitted to Form One at Tema Senior High School (TEMASCO) are to be day students’ for two terms, until the completion of the new boys and girls dormitories.
Mrs Elizabeth Ama Asare, Headmistress of TEMASCO, made this known at the weekend during a meeting with parents and students in Tema.
She told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that construction of the dormitories are far advanced, and would be ready to accommodate the students during the third term.
The Headmistress expressed the hope that a six-classroom block under construction would be completed by the end of November.
Mrs Asare said in the interim the students would use the assembly hall and erected canopies as classrooms.
She said lack of furniture was a constrained to the school authorities and therefore appealed to parents to provide the facility to their wards.
At the Our Lady of Mercy Senior High School (OLAMS), the construction of a classroom block was yet to start.
Mrs Roberta Appau, OLAMS Headmistress told the GNA that the 225 students admitted would be accommodated in the school’s assembly hall and under canopies.
She explained that the school was built to fit the three-year educational system, and therefore, has no available classrooms to accommodate the extra students.
