The Bolgatanga Girls Senior High School in the Upper East Region, has commemorated 50 years of influential education and nurturing young ladies for growth.

The all-female, second-cycle school was initially founded in 1956 as a middle school for girls. In 1965, it changed its name to a women’s teaching college, and in 1973, it became a senior high school for females.

Though the school has produced remarkable people, its infrastructural development continues to be a challenge.

Speaking at the occasion, the headmistress of the school, Mrs. Patricia Agoteba called on stakeholders in education and the government to collectively help improve the infrastructural challenges bedevilling the school. 

According to her,  the need for a water reservoir for water, classroom expansion, and others were critical needs for the students.  

Despite the challenges, she noted that from 2020 to 2022, students have performed remarkably well in the West African Certificate Examination. 

“Of course,  the challenges are there but we are not backing down. We have since performed well in recent years and we will keep doing our best. We also took part in some of the national competitions and won some of them and in others we had 4th position.”

The occasion under the theme; Girl-Child Education; A critical tool for national development. 

Also, to highlight some of the achievements the school has chalked over the years in improving girl-child education in the Region.

Assuring the school of tackling some of the challenges,  the Upper East Regional,  Stephen Yakubu added that the expansion of classrooms and others mentioned will be tackled as soon as possible.

He however encouraged other school heads to emulate the schools in terms of their students’ performance at the WASSCE level. 

Some of the old students who were present also acknowledged that they will contribute to solving the water reservoir challenge.

Meanwhile, some of the freshers and third-years also assured that they will let down the name of the school in their academic performance.
