Abakrampa Senior High School faces serious challenges that hinges on inadequate classroom accommodation for its fast growing student population. Surely, the current five programme pursuit being mounted by the school administration in order to meet satisfaction from its enrolled students , calls for rapid expansion in infrastructure, especially classroom accommodation.
Expansions Since 2006
The school PTA has been working assiduously to provide additional classroom space since 2006/2007 academic year. Initially, the first PTA project was commissioned to commence 2006/2007 academic year.
This is a 2-unit classroom block in current use. In January 2009, the PTA commenced another 6-unit classroom block but designed into a storey block, including washrooms, now at the lintel level of the ground floor. Lack of funds has slowed down the rapid completion of this block which is urgently needed to accommodate fresh students for the ensuing 2010/2011 academic year.
MP’s Classroom Block
The current Member of Parliament for the AAK constituency, Hon. Anthony C. Dadzie, has used part of his Common Fund from Assembly Development programme to build a 3-unit classroom block designed in the form a pavilion to accommodate fresh students admitted for the past 2009/2010 academic year.
Abakrampa Senior High School upon its establishment at its current site has only two residential bungalows for its staff;
• The Headmaster’s Bungalow, and the Assistant Headmaster’s Bungalow.
• STAFF RESIDENTIAL BUNGALOWS are absent.
The absence of residential accommodation for both students and the teaching staff is impeding quality teaching and learning process in the school. Majority of the students live in rented rooms either at New Ebu, about 2 km away from the school, or in Abakrampa township, about one-and half km away from the school. In fact, students walk more than 3km distance from surrounding towns daily to and from school. This results in frequent lateness to early morning lessons.
The 12 or so computers procured for the teaching of ICT and enable students acquire computing skills break down quite frequently, due to severe pressure on their usage by students in the various classes which patronage the inadequate spaced computer laboratory.
The school has a library with a cozy and tranquil atmosphere which can enable students to sit comfortably to read novels, articles, magazines and to undertake research for assignments. With a rapid increase in the population of the school since September 2006, with a continuous rise up to date, the library space has become quite smaller, and now being temporary set into co-habitation with the computer laboratory. In fact majority of the books in stock are out of scope with the teaching syllabus of the MOE, as well as novels suitable for literary works in the English Language.
