PTA of Ahantaman SHS supports the school
The Ahantaman Senior High School (SHS) Parent Teacher Association (PTA) in the West region has built a hostel for students who were previously housed in a private hostel.
This has given more students the option of being in boarding school, especially those from poor homes, as they are fed and their utilities paid, among other things.
The PTA has also paid the allowance for two doctors in the past four months and plans to pay those for four food guards and a matron.
Mr Charles Mintaba, the chairman of the PTA, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, called on parents to be friends with their children and know their issues to prevent them from engaging in social vices.
The PTA agreed to organize a well-structured career counseling program for the students of SHS Three to expose them to a well-guided career path and commended the Board of Directors and parents for the cooperation provided during the year, he said.
Mr Mintah said the Association has decided to help complete the staff apartments for the school’s 160 teachers, as only 15 are currently left on campus and expressed hope that by June next year, it would be completed and put back.
