Bueman Senior High School (BUSEC), has reconstituted a 13-member Board of Governors for the running of the school, with a call on the members to support the school’s authorities in achieving and upholding a superior standard of academic achievement and discipline.
The 13-member Board of Governors was inaugurated at a colourful ceremony at the Torgbui Akotia Hall of the school on 2nd May 2023 by the Regional Director of Education with the Director General’s representative in attendance.
Nana Kugbeadzor-Bakateyi II, the Oti Regional Director of Education, declared the Board officially inaugurated.
According to Nana Kugbeadzor-Bakateyi II, the Oti Regional Director of Education, implementing this initiative will facilitate productive teaching and learning, resulting in enhanced performance in the West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) at Bueman Senior High School.
Randall Obeg-Sakyi (Esq), the representative of the Municipal Chief Executive on the Board, chairs the 13-member team, whose duty is to ensure the seamless operation of academic activities and the well-being of both the staff and students.
Nana Kugbeadzor-Bakateyi II explained that the idea of a Board of Governors stems from the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service’s recognition of community involvement as an essential component of providing quality education.
