Yendi Senior High School now has an assembly hall complex and a girl’s hostel valued at over 570,000 Ghana cedis.
The girl’s hostel was valued at 450,000 Ghana cedis while the assembly hall complex was worth 120,000 Ghana cedis. Halilianni Enterprise and Interlus Company Limited were the two construction companies that undertook the projects.
The projects were funded under the GETFund with the Architectural and Engineering Services Limited (AESL) serving as the consultants.
The Assembly Hall complex which was started under the Acheampong regime had remained as a “white elephant” until now and its completion has been on the initiative of Alhaji Mustapha Ali Idris, Northern Region Minister.
Inaugurating the facilities the Regional Minister urged the school authorities to take good care of the facilities and also plant trees around the buildings to guard against wind storms.
He asked the students to be disciplined and learn to respect their tutors and the elderly, while taking their studies serious, so that they would grow up to become responsible citizens, who would contribute meaningfully to the development of their communities and the country as a whole.
Alhaji Idris, who is an old-boy of the school, urged his colleagues to strive to contribute to the welfare of the school and also try to serve as role models for the students to emulate.
The Regional Minister also cut the sod for the construction of a dinning hall and kitchen complex valued at 450,000 Ghana cedis.
Wal-Lana Abdulai Sulemana, Board Chairman of the School commended the Regional Minister for his support for the school and appealed for furniture for the classrooms and a pick-up to facilitate the movement of students and tutors for official duties.
