The Headmaster of the Sunyani Senior High School (SUSEC), Mr. Gordon Osei Marfo, has called for more support to complete a fence wall project the Parent Association had started to protect the remaining lands of the school from encroachers.
He said the Parents Association had done its part by initiating the project, and now others should come on board to complete it. “Our arms are open to people who wish to come on board to complete the construction of the wall which has been started by the Parents Association.”
Mr. Marfo made the appeal in the company of some tutors when he inspected ongoing works in the school.
The school, which currently has a student population of 4,500, has lost most of its lands to encroachers, which situation could affect its future expansion.
The situation has also led to several theft cases in the school.
In 2015, for instance, the students of the school embarked on a demonstration to register their displeasure over the encroachment of its land, but nothing had changed after the demonstration.
However, to protect the remaining land, the Parent Association had started a project to construct a wall around the school to protect it.
The Headmaster appreciated the Parent Association for the steps it had taken to secure the remaining land by constructing a 3-kilometre wall around the school.
According to him, the wall, when completed, would go a long way to protect the lives and properties of the school. “It will also ensure that students do not sneak to the community behind the school,” he said.
