Regional Minister Visits WASSCE Centres

The Greater Accra Regional Minister Ishmeal Ashitey, on Monday, 17th August 2020 visited final year students of West African Senior High School (WASS) and Presbyterian Boys’ Senior High School (PRESEC) who are currently writing their West Africa Secondary School Certificate Examination.

The Minister was accompanied by the National Director in charge of Basic and Secondary Schools at Ghana Education Service (GES), Madam Patty Assan; the Regional Director of Ghana Education Service, Ms. Monica Ankrah; the Municipal Chief Executive of La Nkwantanang-Madina Municipal Assembly, Jennifer Dede Adjabeng and other officials of GES.

Interacting with the candidates, Mr. Ashitey said his visit was to acquaint himself with the happenings of the on-going WASSCE. Again, he said it was also to wish them well and encourage them to repose a lot of confidence in what they have learned. Adding they should not meddle in any malpractice because their integrity must be intact.

He said the bulk of the success of their examination hinges on their input and conduct at the examination so they should acquit themselves well so as to score high marks. The Minister, however, commended the candidates for adhering to the COVID-19 safety protocols. In both schools, the smartly dressed candidates were all in their face mask, something the minister and his entourage were highly impressed.

Madam Ankrah also praised the candidates for the orderly manner in which they have conducted themselves from the beginning of this year’s exams. She told them not to depend on any question leakages and for that matter abandon their studies.

Madam Adjabeng on her part entreated the candidates to put in their maximum best to come out with flying colours, and also expressed her satisfaction with the measures put in place to ensure a successful examination.

Mr. Charles Obeng Asante, the Public Relations Officer of the Municipal GES directorate disclosed that out of 771 candidates presented by WASS, 427 of them were male with 344 being female, whilst PRESEC presented 972 candidates. Earlier on the Regional Minister had made a similar visit to Adentan-Fafraha Community Day Senior High School.
