Odorgonno SHS PTA supports school with beds

THE Odorgonno Senior High School has taken delivery of 20 double beds to augment the number of beds it has at the boys’ dormitory.


They are the first batch of a total of 80 beds from the parent-teacher association (PTA) as part of its support to the school.

Boarding status

At a ceremony to hand over the beds in Accra, the Chairman of the PTA, Ishmael Odartey Lamptey, said the desire for boarding status was high among parents and students, hence the decision of the association to help in that direction.

According to him, when parents supported more, the PTA would be able to provide other items and facilities to the school.

“When we get more support, we would be able to go the extra mile to do more for the school,” he said.

In total, Mr Lamptey said the PTA would be donating 80 bed stands to the school and from the boys’ dormitory, the support would be extended to the girls’ dormitory.

“For now, the girls have more beds than the boys that is why we started here,” he emphasised.


Responding to the gesture, the headmaster of the school, Patrick Mensah, thanked the PTA for the support, saying that the association was a critical stakeholder in the running of the school.

“To me, I think it has come at the right time because the pressure to get students places to sleep is a challenge so the PTA has done wonderfully well,” he said.

The support, he said had thrown a challenge to the school to work hard to improve upon its performance.

"We are determined to do that,” he said and indicated that the authorities were overwhelmed by demands by parents and guardians to get boarding status for their children and wards.

“I think parents do understand the boarding concept and they want their children to benefit from it.

If parents can support like what the PTA has done, we would be able to take more children into the boarding house,” he said.

The Secretary of the PTA, Samuel Fiador, commended the parents for their support.
