According to him, the incident took the management of the school by surprise and that within a short space of time; every single dormitory was plagued with bed bugs.

“Though difficult and expensive to control, I am happy to report that pest management professionals were consulted, a management plan was put in place and now the situation is almost back to normal,” he added.

The headmaster disclosed this at the 63rd Founders and Awards Day of the school at Sekondi.

He pointed out that the school is in dire need of certain facilities to enhance teaching and learning.

Mr Ocloo Nyamadi mentioned that the school needs a boundary wall to protect its students, staff and lands as well suitable sick bay and dispensary.

He also mentioned additional staff accommodation on campus and a duty post bungalow for the headmaster.

“The school also needs a well -equipped library, additional classrooms and a modern canteen for day students,” he added.

The headmaster revealed that 475 students comprising 167 boys and 308 girls were presented for the May/June West African Senior Secondary School Examination (WASSCE).

He indicated that out of the number, 472 had passes in all subjects and added that two girls, both from the Science department emerged the overall best students obtaining 7As and a B.

Mr Ocloo Nyamadi also mentioned some development projects currently going on in the school as dormitory block for boys to take care of the teeming number of day students.

He also mentioned the rehabilitation of the school’s administration block and the sinking of two mechanical boreholes to curtail the periodic water shortage among others.

Dr Louis Atsiatorney, an educationist, disclosed that to provide quality education, certain factors should be well managed.
