The Tamale International School (TIS), scored a hundred percent pass in last year's Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) with all thirty candidates it presented passing the examination.

Out of the thirty students, 17 of them scored aggregate six, four obtained aggregate seven; three scored aggregate eight and two scored aggregate nine, while four other candidates scored nine ones, three scored eight ones, four scored seven ones and 17 scored six ones. Tamale International School (TIS) was established in 1990 by a group of Dutch, Canadian, British and German parents who settled in Tamale and were concerned about education in the area.

Mr. Musah M. Ashiru, Headmaster of the school disclosed this at the Second Speech and Prize- Giving Day of the School on the theme: " Quality Education, a basic tool for National Development" in Tamale on Saturday.

Four past students of the TIS had won the Head of State award for academic excellence, whilst others in the primary school and Junior Secondary School levels had also won awards by placing first or second in regional and nation-wide competitions in art, music, mathematics and at KIDAFEST competitions.

Mr Ashiru attributed the academic success of the school to the level of pupil/teacher ratio, which makes it easy for teachers to handle effectively and the commitment and dedication of the board members of the school and parents to the progress of the school.

Mr. Ashiru said because of the brilliant academic performance of the school, a lot of parents want to enroll their children there but this has not been possible due to inadequate classroom accommodation. He said as a result of this less than forty percent of applications receive admission into the school and appealed to the Ghana Education Service (GES) and parents to contribute towards the construction of a new classroom block to enable more students to be admitted.

The Headmaster used the occasion to inform the public that the School was no longer a private one as it had been absorbed into the public system since September 1997. Mr. Wilson Dorgbe, Board Chairman of the School said the TIS had a vision of becoming a centre of excellence for preparing children intellectually, morally and socially to meet the challenges of pre-university education.

He said TIS was also aimed at giving equal opportunity for all children irrespective of religion, ethnic or social background to enable them to develop their potential.

Ms Aboagye Matilda Pokuwaah, Add-Kwafo Akua Kyekye, Habib Mohammed Nazif and Iddrisu Asmau, who excelled in the BECE exams in 2005 received prizes for their achievement.

Master Alhassan Yakubu Rashid and Miss Asamoah Yaa Nyarko received prizes for coming up as the overall best students in the Primary and JSS level, while at Nusery level, Abdulai W. Abdllah, Hassan Tunteiya and Benye Rita received prizes for placing first, second and third respectively.

The overall best teacher awards went to Mr Abubakar Shahadu, with the best teachers for Primary and JSS going to Tane Mansah Dorcas and Abukari A. Sadik respectively. Madam Rukaya Yahaya, Asimau Abkallah, Rosina Yeboah and Osam Amiratu were awarded for their long service.
