The Ministry of Education (MoE) before the end of the 2021 academic year will present citations to Senior High Schools in 15 regions whose students performed excellently in the just ended 2020 WASSCE for School exams.
This comes after the Minister for Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum Monday presented citations to 12 Senior High/Technical Schools in the Ashanti Region for excelling in the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
The citations went to the 10 % out of the 135 SHS in the Ashanti region who scored the highest marks cumulatively in eight subjects from A1 to C6.
The presentation which took place at the Golden Bean Hotel in Kumasi was aimed at motivating the schools to continue working hard to improve their fortunes and the development of the nation’s human resources.
Posting on social media, the Ghana Education Service (GES) said “this maiden award presentations will be replicated in the fifteen (15) other regions to motivate teaching and learning in our schools.”
Per the criteria for ranking the best 2020 WASSCE school, Tepa Senior High School emerged the first, followed by St. Louis, Toase SHS, Kumasi High, Ghana Muslim Mission SHS, and Prempeh College.
The rest were Wesley Girls, TI Amass- Kumasi, Opoku Ware School, Pentecost SHS-Kumasi, Mankranso SHS, and Osei Adutwum SHS taking the 12th position.
