The Chief of Baare, Naab Nyaakora Mantii, is appealing for additional infrastructure to be provided at Tongo Senior High School to enhance the quality of teaching and learning.
Established in 2014 by the people of the Talensi district, Tongo Senior High School was founded to make secondary education more accessible to the local residents.
During his speech at the Daa festival held at his palace, Naab Nyaakora Mantii highlighted the school’s urgent need for essential infrastructure projects. Despite being absorbed by the government, the school currently lacks many necessary facilities.
According to the Chief, the school has a total population of approximately 500 students. However, due to limited infrastructure, this number could have been higher.
Naab Nyaakora Mantii emphasised the pressing need for improvement: “In 2014, the people of Talenteega and Baare community decided to establish a community [Senior High] School. We initiated the project ourselves, and I am pleased to announce that the government has absorbed the school. At present, we have about 500 students, but our primary challenge is infrastructure. We only have six classrooms, which we constructed ourselves.”
Additionally, Naab Nyaakora mentioned that over the years, the school has received support from a school in the United Kingdom (UK) in the form of teaching and learning materials. This assistance stems from the positive relationship between some residents of Baare and the UK-based school.
