On her part, headmistress of the school, Mrs Kay Oppong-Ankomah said despite the enormous support from the old girls and other stakeholders, the school continue to grapple with a number of challenges with the greatest being the need for infrastructure.
She said “Although we appreciate the fact that the less endowed schools must be given enough attention; we still believe as our number keep increasing there must be a corresponding increase in facilities.”
She indicated this is an urgent request considering the increase in the number of science students in the school presently. She also indicated that the school needs additional staff accommodation and thus appealed to the general public for support.
