4. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SCHOOL
Year of Establishment: 1991
Location : Pepease Kwahu
District : Kwahu East
St. Dominic’s Senior High Technical School is sourced from the Most Rev. Dominic Andoh, Archbishop Emeritus of the Accra Arch Diocese. The School started in 1980 as one of the then nine (9) Regional Pilot Experimental Junior Secondary Schools. This embryonic humble status of the school was initiated under the able, well-focused leadership of Rev. Fr. Joseph Glatzel of blessed memory who had earlier been decked out with enviable indelible imprints as Headmaster in the annals of St. Peter’s Secondary School, Nkwatia.
The transitional period of the Experimental JSS to St. Dominic’s Secondary Technical School, the first of its kind in the Kwahu South District took effect in the reign of Nana Ampadu Okyere II in 1991 who gave his blessing to the school on her present premises. Also, the expansion of the school would have been stifled but for the generosity of the Presbyterian Church of Pepease that released a portion of their land to the school. This is a very laudable partnership.
The school has been blessed with capable and efficient headmasters. At the J.S.S level, Rev. Fr. Joseph Glatzel (SVD) after establishing and equipping the school invited Mr. George Ofori Atta to become the first Headmaster ‘J’. He worked till 1988 when he retired. After him came Mr. C.L.K. Effah who took the J.S.S. into the transition period to the Senior Secondary School.
At the Senior Secondary Technical Level of St. Dominic’s, Mr. S. O. Amaning became the first headmaster who is best remembered for the increase in students’ population and high academic performance. When he went on transfer the void was filled by Mr. G. K. Agyare and later by Mr. D. F. Dwamena, after which Mr. Patrick Asamoah Kodua took over from 2000 to 2008 and retirement for Mr. Jacob Boafo to take-over as the present substantive headmaster of the school.
