AUGUSTINE’S SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL-BOGOSO
NAME OF SCHOOL : St. Augustine’s Senior High School
LOCATION : Prestea/Huni-Valley District, Western Region
SHORT HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
St. Augustine’s Senior High School, used to be an integral part of St. Augustine’s College, Cape Coast, which offered simultaneously two different courses, namely the Secondary School Course and the Teacher Training Course.
In 1957, the Catholic Church thought it wise to separate the two schools. The Teacher Training Section was thus uprooted from Cape Coast and transplanted at Bogoso. The College was sited at Marlu Camp, a property bought by the Catholic Church form the Marlu Mining Company.
In 1973, there was the need to phase out some Training Colleges in the country and convert them into secondary schools. St. Augustine’s Training College happened to be one of them.
However, the school was made to relocate to its present site in the late 1980’s when the Canadian Bogoso Resources acquired the Marlu concession.
