Breman Asikuma (C/R), Feb. 17, GNA- The authorities of the Breman Asikuma Senior High School, have put in place measures to help improve the academic performance of the students and to ensure discipline in the school.
The measures include monthly class test, intensive supervision at night and Saturday studies and the opening of attendance register in all the classes for both tutors and students, to check their movement. Also to be implemented are, compulsory vacation classes for final year students during holy days and prompt payment of school fees by parents to avoid students being expelled for non-payment.
Mrs Comfort Akomaning, Head Mistress of the school said this at the general Parents Teacher Association (PTA) meeting at the school on Saturday.
She said, the performance of students in 2007 was slightly better than that of 2006 and urged both teachers and students to put in their maximum to enable the school to achieve higher standard.
Mrs. Akomaning said, some students who were suspended for committing various offences have been pardoned and made to sign bonds in the presence of their parents to be of good behaviour till they leave the school.
She appealed to parents to advise their children to be disciplined and concentrate on their studies, especially during holidays. The Head Mistress appealed to the government and other NGOs in the town to help provide a new block for computer studies, since the present one cannot contain the increasing number of students. Nana Miako Mante V, Sub-chief of Apegya, a suburb of Asikuma, who is also the PTA chairman said the association has purchased a KIA Truck, a 3000 horse power generator and 150 plastic chairs all valued at GHc150.00. for the school.
Nana Miako Mante V, hoped the items would help enhance the smooth running of the school and also promote high academic work. He advised the students to stop using Mobile phones on campus, since it disrupts their learning, and cautioned that those found using it would be dealt with accordingly.
He entreated tutors of the school to work harder for the students to pass their examination with better grades.
