Agotime SHS cries for security lights

Street LightStudents and the authorities of Agotime Senior High School (AGOSEC) in Kpetoe in the Volta Region on Friday appealed to government to provide the School with street and security lights.

The appeal was necessitated by the frequent snake bites among female students especially, when they use the alleys, some 100 metres from their dormitory to the classrooms for evening studies.

Master Ben Dzamesi, the School Prefect, made the appeal at the maiden Students Representative Council (SRC) Week celebration of the School at Kpetoe.

He said though some female students had resorted to the use of flashlights, the provision of security lights would address the situation better and guarantee the safety of the students.

Master Dzamesi said a good number of the girls, who did not have flashlights, avoided the evening studies, adding that, the school urgently needs  water storage facilities, as students walk quite a distance to fetch water under the bridge over the River Tordze on the Ho-Aflao highway.

Master Dzamesi said the two situations posed serious challenges to discipline and academic work in the School and called for immediate intervention from stakeholders.

Mrs Sylvia Emma Draphor, Headmistress, said though the School recorded 99.6 per cent in the 2012 West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE), the students could have done better with good facilities and appealed to government to complete all uncompleted structures in the School.

Mr Michael Kobla Adzaho, Agotime-Ziope District Chief Executive (DCE) said government remained committed to improving infrastructure in the School.

The DCE presented a water storage facility to the school on behalf of Mrs Juliana Azumah-Mensah, Member of Parliament for the area and also pledged GHC2, 000 to the SRC from the Assembly’s coffers.
