The school also picked the Best Government Junior High School (JHS) and Best Kindergarten Awards, out of over 1, 000 basic schools in the region.

Mr Theophilus Addo Zuta, headteacher of the school, who disclosed this to the Press at Agona Swedru, said the four prestigious awards were picked in the last month National Best Teacher Award held in Tamale in the Northern Region,

According to Mr Zuta, the School was also adjudged the “Most Improved Performance” in BECE results in 2011 in the Central Region.

The headteacher who was flanked by Ms Rose Adu –Yeboah, Assistant Headmistress of the school during the briefing, said it also won best Science and Mathematics Award in the Central Region.

He said the school had chalked successes in the past years due to commitment, hard work, selflessness, dedication and humility on the part of the teaching staff,

According to headteacher, the School Management Committee (SMC), the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), and the Catholic Church deserved commendation for ensuring good moral upbringing of the children.

Mr Zuta said the children were taken through counseling and other religious programmes organized by the church every morning before classes started, to prepare them spiritually and physically.

He said the PTA of the school in collaboration with the SMC and other stakeholders, were doing everything possible to produce quality results.

Mr Zuta said the school with a student-population of over 680, was using only 19 computers, made up of five desk-tops and 14 laptops.

He said the school lacked structures, adding that its current structures could not accommodate the increasing population.

The headteacher, therefore, appealed to the Agona West Assembly, the Central Region GES, donor agencies, corporate bodies and others, to come to its aid to further improve standards at the school..
