The Keta Municipal Assembly convened a meeting at the Municipal Assembly Hall, bringing together heads of seven Senior High Schools, including three Senior Technical Schools. The gathering aimed to foster dialogue and address pertinent issues affecting secondary education within the municipality.

School heads, honourable members, media personnel, and Assembly staff, including the Municipal Coordinating Director, assembled for the session. The meeting commenced am with an opening prayer led by Mr. David K Kattah, the Headmaster of Tsiame Senior Technical School, followed by formal introductions from all attendees.

Hon. Emmanuel Gemegah, the Municipal Chief Executive, delivered opening remarks, extending apologies for the delayed start and emphasizing the significance of the gathering. This engagement marked his inaugural meeting with all Heads of Second Cycle Institutions since assuming office.

The primary agenda was to present a situational report on each school and discuss the results of the 2022 WASSCE examination. While performances were generally satisfactory, there were notable areas for improvement identified across the board.

Inadequate staffing for core and elective subjects such as Mathematics, English, Physics, and Biology emerged as a common challenge. Other concerns included accommodation shortages for both staff and students, transportation limitations for food supplies, insufficient infrastructure, and low student enrollment and attendance.

During the session, each headmaster/mistress provided insights into their school’s current situation and presented findings from the 2022 WASSCE performance analysis. They appealed to Hon. Emmanuel Gemegah for urgent attention to these challenges to enhance the quality of education and services offered by their institutions.

In response, Hon. Gemegah assured the attendees of his commitment to address the identified issues in collaboration with the Presiding Member, Hon. Amos Ametsimey. He pledged to prioritize the improvement of school performance and overall educational standards within the municipality.

The engagement concluded with a sense of optimism as stakeholders looked forward to concerted efforts towards resolving the highlighted challenges and fostering educational excellence in Keta.
