Akufo-Addo commissions Abomosu STEM model SHS

The Abomosu Model Senior High School is fitted with the full complement of amenities such as playing fields, administrative buildings, 12 laboratories, libraries, and dormitories

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has commissioned the Abomosu Model Senior High School, which is one of the nine new model schools being constructed by the government.

The Abomosu Model Senior High School is fitted with the full complement of amenities such as playing fields, administrative buildings, 12 laboratories, libraries, and dormitories.

Additionally, the V-Block in the school has a total of 24 classrooms, as opposed to 12 classrooms in the E-Blocks constructed by the former administration.

The establishment of these nine new senior high schools comprises the construction of seven new Senior High Schools and the upgrading of two existing schools into model schools, making a total of nine schools.

The seven new schools are located at Kwadaso, Dabaa, Awaso, Abomosu, Akrodie, Weija and Kpasenkpe. Seven out of the nine schools are proposed science focused schools, with the other two being the first ever Creative Arts School, Kwadaso, in Kumasi, and a Senior High Technical School at Dabaa, named after former President J. A. Kufour.

It will be recalled that contracts for the construction of these schools were awarded in October 2019, and the sites were handed over to the contractors by the consultants a month later.

The school, once completed, will strive to educate students through theoretical and practical training in technical disciplines, creative production and processes for technical education, and to provide a backbone for the industry under the One District One Factory (1D1F) programme.
