Headmistress of Klo Agogo SHS worried of low patronage

The Headmistress of Klo Agogo Senior High School, Ms Emelia Amartey-Quarcoo, has expressed worry about low patronage of the school by students.

Speaking at a Parent-Teacher Association meeting of the school at Klo Agogo , Ms Amartey-Quarcoo added that since the inception of the school in 1991, population of students was about 530, consisting of 302 boys and 228 girls .

She blamed this on the high attrition of staff and students, and the lack of proper infrastructure, which she said, was making teaching and learning difficult.

The school, Ms Amartey-Quarcoo added, lacked vehicles for activities resulting in over-stretching of her personal vehicle for school activities.

She hinted that the school land had been encroached upon by animals and people of the area, putting the lives of the students in danger.

She urged parents to help enforce the school’s rules and regulations on their wards, and provide them with National Health Insurance and Birth Certificates, among others, for proper documentation.

Ms Amartey-Quarcoo indicated that the school was constructing a 12-seater KVIP place of convenience for the students .

She explained that the school lacked textbooks at the library, and dormitories in the school lacked beds.

The headmistress, therefore, appealed to government to provide beds and mattresses to students to help increase the number of boarders.

Meanwhile, the chairman for the PTA, Rev Noah Amanortey, has inaugurated a seven-member committee to plan for the school’s silver jubilee celebrations next year.
