SOMÈ SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
Tel: 036 209 5583; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the coming years, we foresee a Somè Senior High School that is well-endowed infrastructurally, that has more qualified, competent, motivated and dedicated staff, and that has more disciplined and academically- sound students.
The Somè Senior High School aims at nurturing and training those who pass through it into academically sound and morally upright people who are capable of contributing their quota to the development of the nation.
3. THE SCHOOL CREST AND MOTTO
The school has a unique crest with the motto: “Tso Nakl8” (Arise and Shine). The crest shows the rising sun asking the students to ‘rise and shine’ wherever they are; – to be the beacon of the society in which they live. It is urging them to live up to their responsibilities and expectations.
4. BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
The Somè Senior High School, Agbozume, was founded in 1966. It was founded by the Agbozume Scholars Association (ASA) and christened Agbozume Secondary School
(AGBOSCHO). The school was administered as a private community institution until 27th March, 1973 when it was given a temporary certificate of registration as a secondary school (Reg. No. VR/2/) under the Ghana Education Service.
The Agbozume Secondary School was eventually absorbed into the public school system on 11th October, 1977, with the registration no. VR/P1/21/23 with the name Somè Secondary School (SOSEC) and the motto “Tso Nakl8” [Arise and Shine] and Mr. T. S. Avugrah as its first public Headmaster (Acting).

6. SCHOOL FACILITIES
i. The Somè Senior High School has twenty classrooms, a one-classroom science laboratory, a one-classroom computer laboratory, and a one- classroom library. For a school with a current population of one thousand one hundred and thirty-nine [1,139], these facilities are woefully inadequate
ii. The school has a standard [400m – oval] athletics and football field and fields for handball and volley ball. She has enough space for the provision of other recreational facilities.
7. ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES
a. General Arts: Literature in English, French, Ewe, Government, Christian Religious Studies, Geography, Elective Mathematics, Economics.
b. Business: Business Management, Financial Accounting, Cost Accounting, Elective Mathematics, Economics.

e. General Science: Physics, Elective Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology.
f. Agricultural Science: General Agriculture, Crops Husbandry & Horticulture, Physics, Chemistry.
8. CO-CURRICULA ACTIVITIES
The Somè Senior High School puts high premium on co-curricula activities. Music, Culture, Debate and Drama are the key areas in which the school does excel. For example, in 2008, the school reached the Southern Zone finals in the Independence Anniversary Debate and lost narrowly to Achimota Senior High School.
The SOSEC Old Students Association, the Parent-Teacher Association, the Somey Traditional Authority and the Ketu South District Assembly have all been making modest contributions to the development of the school.
