GHS BESSI URGENT CHALLENGES

The major problems of Government High School Awum Bessi include the acute shortage of infrastructure and personnel. The school manages with four classrooms erected by the village Development Association (BACDA), four (4) provided by the state, together with three (3) by the PTA and two (2) by the European Union just to be able to contain all the students in the double streams. There is a dire need  for a science laboratory and a Food and Nutrition specialized room.

The school has no administrative block to be used by administrative staff or personnel. There is an urgent need for administrative block. Arequest to this effect has been directed through the administractive hierarchy o the Honorable Minister of Secondary Education for the construction of one. Meantime, for the 2015/2016 academic year like in the past six years, the P.T.A has again managed to rent premises to serve as administrative block, but this is quite an expensive venture.

The school is in tenth academic year but without a single teacher in Food and Nutrition, Computer science and Philosophy and only single teachers for key subjects like Economics and History. 

Proposals: There is dire need for two (2)Economics/Commerce teachers, Two(2) History teachers and two (2) teachers in chemistry.
