A THIRTEEN-MEMBER reconstituted board of governors of the Mansoman Senior High School has been inaugurated at Manso-Atwere in the Amansie West District in the Ashanti Region.
The Regional Director of Education, Mr J.K. Onyina, inaugurated the board, which has Rt. Rev. Benjamin Kwabena Asare, Bishop of the Obuasi Diocese of the Methodist Church as Chairman.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, Mr Onyina reminded the board members of their advisory role, stressing that the headmaster and his management would succeed in the administration of the school if the board acted professionally.
He cautioned that board members should not interfere in the day-to-day administration of the school.
The regional director called on the assembly member for the area, Mr Thomas Oppong, who had been made a board member, to use his position to lobby for the school when the district assembly is distributing its share of the Common Fund.
He called for action to protect the school’s land to prevent encroachment.
Mr Onyina also suggested that discipline should be instilled in the students to ensure meaningful academic work.
He charged old students of the school to contribute meaningfully to improve the image of the school.
Mr Onyina commended the parent-teacher association of the school for putting up a computer laboratory and also donating a 38-seater Mercedes Benz Bus to the school.
The headmaster of the school, Mr Annor Yeboah, who is also a member of the board, in a welcoming address, stressed the need for the new board members to bring their wide range of expertise, knowledge and experience in education to bear on the development of the school.
The District Director of Education, Mr Samuel Kena, who chaired the ceremony, was confident that the new board would live up to expectation.
