THE HEADMASTER of Adisadel College in Cape Coast, William Kusi-Yeboah, has disclosed that the school recorded 99.6% in the 2014 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
He said with a total of 551 candidates presented, 491 students scored eight passes, 53 had seven passes, four students had six passes with two absentees.
Mr Kusi-Yeboah added that plans are underway for management to ensure the school scores 100% in the 2015 WASSCE.
The headmaster made this known during 105 th Speech, Prize-Giving and Founders Day celebration at Cape Coast over the weekend.
He disclosed that the school was able to admit 835 first year students making the students population to 2,041.
Mr Kusi-Yeboah revealed that his vision to introduce other vocational subjects in the curriculum of the college is still relevant and the application is receiving attention, and therefore, appealed to stakeholders to continue to embrace it.
He said the college had witnessed a tremendous improvement in the area of discipline on the part of staff and students due to effective supervision and monitoring by management.
The headmaster also mentioned the slow progress of GETFUND projects such as dormitory complex and a centenary auditorium, deplorable road network, irregular and non-payment of school fees and inadequate security as some of the challenges confronting the school.
The Managing Director at the Department of Radiology, Akim Children’s Hospital, Dr Godfred Gaisie, who was the Guest of Honour for the ceremony, advised the students to take their studies seriously in order for them to become responsible adults in future.
‘Ghana as a nation has many challenges; so becomes your responsibility as future leaders to learn from our mistakes and set this country on the right path because you will inherit it after we leave,’ he said.
The Guest Speaker, Rev Dr George Dawson-Amoah, speaking on the theme: ‘Bridging The Gap Between Academic and Industry- A Collaborative Partnership’, said, ‘Industries need qualified and well trained human resources, government needs business to grow to be able to generate fund to undertake developmental projects and employment while educators need to produce the kind of students who can readily be employed or be self-employed.’
