The President of Ebenezer Senior High School (SHS) Old Students Association, Lloyd Evans, has expressed displeasure in how GES has neglected the Dansoman based school.

He disclosed this at the school’s 14th Speech and Prize Giving Day and 78th Anniversary under theme: ‘’Challenges of Day Senior High School- The Role of Stakeholders’’.

According to him, Ebenezer SHS is one of the highly deprived Senior High Schools in the Greater Accra region although the school caters the educational needs of students around Kasoa, Dansoman, Manprobi, Chokor, Glefe, Sakaman, Korle Gonno, Mataheko and its environs.

According to Lloyd Mensah, most projects in the school are uncompleted and have been abandoned for so many years. He cited a 300-bed capacity girls’ dormitory which is 80% complete and has been pending for over 12 years.

He also mentioned the Visual Arts Department project, which was started by the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and requires an amount of GHC200,000 to aid its completion.

The school has no science laboratory even though it is an examination center for West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

Mr. Lloyd Evans called on government to assist the school with infrastructure to aid students in their studies.

He also seized the opportunity to plead with parents to ensure that their wards enjoy quality education by cooperating with school authorities.

Presiding Bishop for Victory Bible Church, Bishop Tackie Yarboi, who was the guest speaker also called on government to support the school.

The man of God advised students of Ebenezer Senior High School (SHS) to take their lessons seriously.

He also urged students to use social media as a tool for education and not for games and watching indecent films.

Speaking on government’s free SHS policy, Bishop Tackie Yarboi said “This policy is an answer to the prayers of the poor in our society whose children would have been denied education beyond junior high school. Day students in SHS are more exposed to the numerous acts of distraction from academic work than their counterparts in boarding schools”.
