It also has an inscription; (motto) ‘Kaso kyerege gu daa’ literally meaning ‘Future pro sperity begin to day.
- BRIEF HISTORY:
The idea of the establishment of this school was wholly community advocate. In fact it was the initiative of the Seikwa Traditional Council who foresaw the need to establish the school as the numerous JSS graduates from the traditional area were frequently stranded with admissions to schools in neighboring traditional areas, and the fact that the government of Ghana had planned to ban the opening of new Senior High Schools by the year 1990.
Consequently, an Education Committee was put in place by Nananom to work out the modalities for the establishment of the school. In pursuance of this noble objective, and as a step forward, and entrance examination was conducted to select the first batch of students.
The school therefore started on 14th November 1989 with 85 students (71 boys and 14 girls). The community managed the school until 1992 when it was absorbed by the Government into the public domain.
