ABURAMAN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
The noble idea of the establishment of a Secondary School for the Abura State, Aburaman Senior High School, was mooted by eminent citizens of the Abura Traditional Area.
The vision of the founding fathers was to sensitize the people of Abura and its environs to realize the importance of higher education and to satisfy the continual educational needs of then middle schools in the area.
Consequently the school was established by the people of Abura Dunkwa in September 1976 in the old local Methodist Church with 18 Students. As the population of the school increased, the community erected bamboo structures to be used as classrooms and also surrendered its Community Centre for administrative purposes. The bamboo classrooms were replaced with bricks dwarf walls near the community centre by the community. The community centre has since remained the administration block of the school.
A site of 75 acres, which is about two kilometres from the old site was acquired for the school, most of which is under developed. Until the school was absorbed into the public system in 1979, all cost including staff emoluments were borne by the Abura Dunkwa community and certain concerned citizens of the Abura State.
The school has two blocks of six classrooms each, built in 1991, which is woefully inadequate for students’ intake,
