Authorities at the Swedru Senior High School (SWESCO) say that the lack of adequate accommodation on campus for teachers is hindering teaching and learning.
The school is also worried about the incomplete fence wall of the school, which serves as a route for stray animals that often come onto campus to destroy school property.
Some students also take advantage of the situation and use the place as an exit route to town, thus making it difficult for school authorities to monitor students.
The Swedru SHS in Agona Swedru has a student population of over four thousand students.
Being one of the schools built by Ghana’s first president, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, it prides itself on producing some great men and women who have contributed their quota to the development of the country.
The school, however, is faced with some challenges that hinder the delivery of teaching and learning.
The issue of inadequate accommodation on campus for teaching staff has become a challenge, as only forty teachers reside on campus as against the over four thousand students, making it difficult to control student activities.
Portions of the school’s fence wall have not been completed, making it easier for stray animals to sometimes use portions of the school compound as their grazing area.
