4. BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
Komenda Secondary Technical School now Komenda Senior High Technical School was established in accordance with PNDC law 207 as a community, Co-educational, Day Secondary School in January, 1991. It was housed in a Second World War Barracks bequeathed to the Komenda Traditional Area by the Air Wing of the Royal Navy after the Second World War 1939-45. The barracks had served as the Experimental Junior Secondary School-1987, which transferred to Aldersgate at Komenda to make room for the Secondary Technical School. Today, by reason of the Computerized School Selection and Placement System, Girls and Boys’ dormitory blocks are available for the other students from outside the community.
The school is located on the northeast part of Komenda College and about 2.5 km from Komenda township.
