ANLO SECONDARY SCHOOL, ANLOGA
- OUR VISION
The vision of ANSECO is to provide a learning environment and experience that emphasizes on discipline, community involvement, individual responsibility, and high academic standard with cutting edge teaching methods. It is our intention to address the importance of the individual as an active member of a community that extends beyond the classroom into a more diverse society.
- MISSION STATEMENT
“To provide the students with the means to acquire knowledge and skills that will help them develop their mental, physical, moral and cultural capabilities through discipline, modern teaching and learning techniques, effective supervision, and prudent management of resources to enable them excel in their chosen careers for decent living and useful citizenry”.
- THE SCHOOL CREST
The school has got a unique crest with the motto “Truth and Service”. The crest has got three main segments. The first segment carries a book and a star, which identify the school as a source of knowledge, and a star of the whole Anlo State. The fishing and farming implements in the second and third segments, show the occupation of the area where the school is situated. The centre of the crest has the symbol of the Anlo State, which depicts patriotism. The Chains fastened together symbolizes Unity.
- BRIEF HISTORY
Anlo secondary school was established on the 10th of April, 1959. It was originally named Anlo High School. The Founding Fathers were:
- Torgbui Adeladza II, 15th Awoamefia of Anlo Traditional Area
- Cephas Kofi Fiagbe
- James Worlator Kwami Doe
The first two Headmasters were Prof. I.Y. Fiagbe (1959 – 1960) and Mr. Evans Agbottah
(1960 – 1963). The school was absorbed into the Public Educational System in the 1963/64 academic year with Mr. S.D. Sorkpor being the first Government appointed Headmaster. The school which is co-educational, is currently the fifth largest in the Volta Region with a student population of 1313 in 2009/2010 Academic Year.
The school celebrated its Golden Jubilee in May, 2009, under the theme: ‘Championing Academic Excellence in Anlo Land: 50 Years of Quality Education in ANSECO’.
ANSECO is situated at Avume about three (3) kilometres from Anloga along the Anloga-Keta road. It can be reached from Accra by the Accra-Keta road through Dabala or from Ho through Denu and Keta.
The school has both day and boarding facilities.
- MAJOR ACHIEVEMENTS
The school continues to register a steady improvement in academic performance in the SSSCE/WASSCE, with an improvement in the quality of the grades. Below is the record for the past 6 years.
NO. OF SUBJEC TS PASSED
It is worthy to observe that most of our students come in with aggregates ranging from 20 to 30. This, therefore, demands a lot of effort from our teachers to “shape and re-shape” them before they are qualified to write their final WASSCE. May I on behalf of the Board of Governors and P.T.A., commend them for their efforts.
