A GH¢6.9 million modern science laboratory is to be constructed for the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale.

The Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mustapha Ali Idris, who cut sod for the start of the project said it is expected to be completed in 2009 to benefit schools from the three northern regions. "As the leading science education institute in the northern sector, the provision of the facility was in recognition of the school’s contribution to science development", he stated.

He noted that the school was the first in the northern sector to manufacture a rocket in the late 1960’s through the efforts of a former tutor, Mr La Loji, an Indian.

ALhaji Mustapha reiterate government commitment to provide educational infrastructure for needy schools.

Headmistress of the school, Madam Mary Asobayire, said the girls’ dormitory was in a bad state and appealed for renovation and more infrastructure development to enhance academic work in the school.

Madam Asobayire said water supply was also a problem for the school and appealed to the Regional Minister to lobby Bi-Water, the contractors of the Tamale Water Extension programme to extend water to the school.

Chairman of the Board of Governors of the school, Mr Sylvester Adongo, expressed concern about the encroachment on the school’s land and called for measures to protect the land.

He commended the GETFund managers for the project and advised both the students and teachers to make the maximum use of the facility when completed to improve academic standards of the school.

Northern Regional Director of Education, Mr John Kwaku Horbenu, stressed the importance of science and technology in national development and impressed upon science teachers in the region to work hard to help improve standards.
