Nana Akyem X, the Odzikro of Efutuakwa in the Mfantseman Municipality on Thursday, 15th July, 2021 presented eight sets of teachers furniture to the headmistress of the basic School in the above community to help the teachers in the discharge of their duties.
Nana did the presentation in a short ceremony which was held at the school compound and attended by high profiled personalities in the district including some chiefs and friends.
In an interview with Ahotsew Radio/TV, he said he had identified the problems of the school and is committed to solve them. “About three weeks ago, the new headmistress came to me to present the problems they are facing as a school. She talked about the lack of furniture and inadequate classrooms. I therefore assembly my people to do something about it and this is the start of the project,” he said.
Also, Nana Akyem X used the occasion to advice other chiefs to be responsible to their subjects. He said being a chief means you are elevated above your people and such elevation comes with responsibilities. “You see, when you are made a chief, there is a huge task placed on you. That is the reason why you are carried in a palanquin to signify elevation and every elevation comes with responsibilities,” he concluded.
7 BEST PERFORMING C/R SCHOOLS IN WASSCE 2020 Congratulations To Bisease Senior High (Biseco)
Bisease Senior High School has been ranked 7th best performing senior high school in Central Region in WASSCE 2020 in a ceremony held at the University of Cape Coast on Wednesday June 16, 2021.
In the ceremony attended by the minister of education, Hon Yaw Adutwum, his deputy designate, Hon John Ntim Fordjour, the Regional Director of Education and many other stakeholders of education, BISECO beat off competition from some of the self acclaimed best schools in the region to attain this remarkable feat.
Wesley Girls Senior High School is the best school in the region, followed by St. Augustine College, St. Theresah Seminary, Holy Child Academy, Mfantsipim School, Ghana National College and BISECO to complete the best seven schools, in that order.
With this, BISECO remains the best senior high school in Ajumako Enyan Essiam, with the neighbouring schools failing to make a mark in the regional Rankings.
Education Director ranks BISECO most disciplined school in AEED
The Ajumako Enyan Essiam District Education Directorate has taken time to ensure practices in schools are in sync with policies governing the teaching profession. It is for this reason that comprehensive inspection has been mounted in all Senior High Schools under the able supervision of Mrs. Sabina Aba Wilson, District Director?.
The inspection Team
A team of 8 officers led by Mr Martin Bekoe rounded up the exercise in Bisease Senior High School on Wednesday, April 21,2021.
During a debriefing session around 4 pm yesterday, Mr Michael Rockson, secretary to the team undressed their observations in the full view of staff of the school.
Areas checked included, but not limited to teachers attendance, pedagogical skills exhibited during instructional hours, administration-teacher-teacher-student relationship, the environment, teachers output of work and students punctuality.
He could not hide their satisfaction for the day. “Biseco scores highest on our ranking for being the most disciplined school among the five SHS in the district where similar exercise has gone on.”
In reaction to why SHS teachers needed to prepare lesson plans, he clarified, that it was for the teacher’s own good; to stay on track, get the best of activities and teaching and learning materials, get someone to handle a class as perfect as the original teacher, in his absence ” He was emphatic as the core points only give facts, which prepare students for exams.” “We must shift from teacher centred lessons to have the students in focus instead,” he added.
Mr Rockson passed a satisfactory note on adherence of Covid-19 protocols by the rank and file of the school. He climaxed his turn with a plea for all teachers who were in the system before 2018 to register with their details on the NTC platform for the teacher licence “licensing of existing teachers begins in no time. Teachers must participate by registering on the NTC portal. Government paid for this with the teacher professional allowance, so do not be expecting additional payments.”
Mr. Martin Bekoe, District HR and leader of the team indicated, that integrity, respect for authority and team cohesion are indispensable qualities teachers ought to work on. “without team work, Biseco will not keep shining. Let’s adore integrity to safeguard our reputation. Respecting authority in this school has contributed to the level of discipline and cooperation we’ve witnessed today.”
Mrs. Sabina Aba Wilson ,DD
District Director of Education, Mrs. Sabina Aba Wilson in her usual humility “I will add my voice to the call for diligence and commitment, our policy ensures that teachers in second cycle schools take a minimum of 18 periods weekly. Only assistant heads are to have 12 periods due to extra duties they may have to perform.” “You have impressed us with the level of output of work, serenity of environment, and comportment.” she praised. She urged the staff to follow due procedure in seeking permission to stay away from work, especially when sick.
Mr Afari Sackey, HM
In his closing remarks, Mr Afari Sackey, head of the school expressed his pride in his colleagues and put before the team a worrying challenge. “The glory of the palm tree is in its fronds. I’m so glad receiving such comments from the team. Colleagues, until today, many of us may not have an idea how our collective efforts is moving the school forward.”
He praised his predecessors for such precedence he had inherited.
Madam, he continued, ” We recently visited GES headoffice, introduced ourselves as management of Bisease Senior High School and we were not recognised”
Staff of BISECO
Mr Afari explained. “The school has four different names up there at the Headquarters. Teachers here have been grouped into two on the pay roll. By this medium, we would visit you for directives to acquire at least one of the names we are known for up there.” He concluded.
