Kidnappings: Kabore School seeks support for fence

Management of Kabore School Complex in Ho, under the Seven Garrison Education Unit of the 66 Artillery Regiment has appealed for support to construct a perimeter fence to enhance security in the school.

Ms Jemima Gidiglo, Head of the School’s Junior High Department, said the initiative was in response to the threat of terrorist attacks and kidnappings.

She said it was also to seal off the school premises from unauthorised public use.

She made the appeal at the third Speech and Prize Giving Day of the School on Saturday and mentioned technical workshops, art studios, a library, and laboratories for the science and home economics departments as needed to adequately prepare students for the industry.

“We need an arts studio for our artistically inclined students… a well equipped laboratory would help students make grades in Senior High School,” she said.

She was grateful to the old student groups and individuals for supporting the school with pupil population of 1,714, which required more support towards becoming a model school with boarding facilities.

The Headmistress said the School’s success secret was its culture of “continuous improvement” and working with parents, families and the community to produce “work ready” students.

“We are a village raising a nation of scholars at Kabore…Bring your children and we will discipline them for you,” she said.

Madam Justine Dogbatse who heads the School’s primary section, told the Ghana News Agency that in view of recent kidnappings, authorities had eyes on the movements of pupils, and had undertaken the necessary sensitisations towards ensuring their safety.

She said the Seven Garrison had also placed trained security personnel on watch, and appealed for support to upgrade the School’s playing field.

Kabore School Complex was established in 1975 with a population of 72 pupils.

Funds were raised at the event for the fencing project and it attracted contributions from old students, churches, non-governmental organisations, as well as the Seven Garrison Primary School and the 66 Artillery Regiment.

The pupils coloured the event with their anniversary attires, and hosted hundreds of past students, parents and stakeholders to varieties of art displays.

Dr. Yvonne Agbetsoamedo, a past student who delivered the keynote address, asked old students to constitute a “formidable” association to support the school with infrastructure and mentorship.

The event was on the theme “Repositioning Kabore School for Higher Academic Laurels- the Role of Stakeholders”, and was supported by Indomie, Promasidor Ghana, and Lena Pharmacy.

Present was Mr Nelson Akorli, Ho Municipal Chief  Executive, and Mr Edward Sarpong Appiah, Commander Rear of the 66 Artillery Regiment.

Deserving students, teachers and stakeholders were awarded certificates, prizes and citations.
