NKORANMAN Senior High School (SHS) at Seikwa in the Tain District of the Brong Ahafo Region has for three consecutive times maintained its splendid performance in the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The school, with a current population of over 600, has enriched its progressive track record with the 2008 WASSCE results in which it maintained its 100 per cent record since 2006.
The Headmaster of the school, Mr M. K. Boakye, told the Daily Graphic that out of the 143 students who sat for the examination last year, 78 candidates had passes in eight subjects while the rest had passes in seven, six and five subjects and added that it was gratifying that none of the candidates presented failed in all subjects.
The school is situated at Seikwa in the Tain District of the Brong Ahafo Region and is considered as one of the less-endowed in the region and country.
Mr Boakye said by the current standard the school had a better position than the other SHS in the struggle for the siting of the district model school in the Tain District.
“In terms of population and academic standards none of the senior high schools can match Nkoranman,” he said.
He stated that the secret behind the current performance was partly due to the seriousness of teachers and students.
Meanwhile the Seikwa Tertiary Students Association (SETSA) has congratulated the headmaster, the entire administration and the student body for the splendid performance.
In the letter, the association expressed its profound gratitude to the school for giving the entire Seikwa Traditional Area a facelift. The union, therefore, pledged to continue its programme of offering free tuition during vacation periods in order to maintain the splendid performance.
In a related development SETSA has also sent a congratulatory message to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) . Mr Asiedu Nketsiah, the NDC General Secretary, and the Member of Parliament for the area, Mr Ahmed Ibrahim, for emerging victors in the immediate past general election.
The student body also appealed to Mr Nketsiah, who is a son of Seikwa, and the MP to take into consideration the poor nature of road network in the Tain Constituency, particularly the road linking Seikwa to Berekum, and do something about it.
