(ADIDOME) NORTH TONGU:
Adidome community rewards headmaster


The people of Adidome in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region last Wednesday set a worthy example for the rest of the region when they honoured the outgoing headmaster of the Adidome Senior High School with a brand new salon car valued at GH¢9,400.

The car was in appreciation of Mr Fred Mordey’s ,24 years of selfless service to the area.

The vehicle was presented to Mr Mordey at a colourful ceremony held in his honour. In atten-dance were chiefs, opinion leaders , prominent persons as well as the hierarchy of the regional educational directorate.

In his address, the Volta Regional Director of Education, Mr G.S. Kploanyi, reiterated the fact that community ownership of schools and the attendant motivation of the staff was crucial in the development of high calibre human resource.

"If communities own the schools in their respective areas and do well to motivate the teachers that teach in those schools, then teachers would be encouraged to go the extra mile and this would also help in their retention," he added.

He congratulated Mr Mordey for his hard ’.¦¦ ork and diligence, which he described as wor¬th) of emulation, and urged him to exhibit fhe same or even better behaviour at his new post at Kpando.

Mr Kploanvi applauded the organisers of the ceremony and encouraged them to improve upon ii so that young enthusiastic and diligent teachers could also benefit in years to come.

The incominii headmaster of the Adidome Senior High School, Mr H.E.K Vortuame, said the school was one of the fastest growing senior high schools in the region with a student popula-tion of 1,100 and 78 staff but had neither a school bus nor a pick-up for administrative work.


The only mini bus available was more of a liability than an asset due to its maintenance cost, he said.

He also said the road leading to the school was in a very bad state, the school lacked an overhead tank for storing water and there was the need for a gas propelled cooking system since the smoke from the use of firewood was having a negative toll on the eyes and respiratory systems of staff working in the kitchen.

He said electricity supply to the school was a major problem as most classrooms were without light, thereby forcing students to study in the din-ing hall amidst the noise and other hazards.

Mr Vortuame appealed to corporate bodies to assist the school in acquiring a transformer to supply light to all parts of the school in order to meet other needs that would enhance effective studies.

The North Tongu District Chief Executive. Alhaji Bubey pzinadu. assured the school that the assembly would help stop the use of firewood for cooking in the kitchen and also look into the problem of electricity supply.

He gave the assurance that the assembly would supply the school with bulbs to be used in all classrooms and other parts of the compound.

For his achievement Mr Dzinadu promised that a bust of Mr Mordey would be erected at the boys’ dormitory in his memory.

Mr Fred Mordey. the.outgoing headmaster, for his part, thanked the people of Adidome for their co-operation and assistance over the years and advised the students and teachers to continue with the good work.

He urged colleague headmasters to strive to attain the height he had reached since determination was the key to success.
