A new Board of Governors of the Osei Tutu II College has been inaugurated, with a call on the members to assist the authorities of the school to attain and maintain a high level of academic excellence and discipline at all times.
The Ashanti Regional Director of Education, Madam Mary Owusu, who made the call, said that would promote effective teaching and learning, leading to an improved performance in the West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in the school.
The 13-board member, chaired by the Asantehene’s representative on the board, Nana Yaw Owusu Akwanusa, is tasked with the responsibility to ensure smooth academic activities and the welfare of both staff and students.
Madam Achiaw explained that the concept of board of governors was based on the policy of community participation in education which the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES) accepted as an indispensable part of the process of quality education delivery.
Welcoming the guests, the Headmaster of the school, Mr Stephen Addai, said the school could boast 1,862 students, stating that the Osei Tutu II College was not serving only the local community but the entire nation.
The school, according to the headmaster, had raised professionals in diverse endeavours who were performing their respective roles in the development of the nation.
