The Principal therefore implored the new students to take their studies seriously and allow themselves to be trained by their respective tutors.

“Do not allow your parent’s investments to waste, be humble because humility opens doors,” she advised.

Reverend Godwin Amuzu Tornzo, the Administrator of the school disclosed that though the College has chalked up success in education over the years, it is still faced with a few challenges.

He mentioned that, “inadequate accommodation for both students and tutors, inadequate tables and chairs as well as computers to enhance computer literacy are the major challenges of the school”.

Rev. Tornzo called on the relevant stakeholders and corporate Ghana to provide the school with the needed support.

Hon. Kwame Dzudzorli Gakpey, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Keta Constituency pledged his commitment to offer support to address the challenges of the school.

He welcomed the freshers and wished them well in their academic endeavours.

Hon. Emmanuel Gemegah, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Keta also pointed out the Assembly’s role in providing some accommodation to augment the accommodation challenges, the donation of 400 chairs to augment the furniture challenge among others.
