Headmistress of the school Mrs Paulina Yankah made the revelation at the 41st Anniversary and the 24th speech and prize giving day of the school last Saturday.  She explained that the academic achievement of the school can improve if the necessary machineries are put in place to allow serious academic work that will enhance teaching and learning in the school.

The Institute of Educational Planning and Administration [IEPA] of the University of Cape Coast [UCC] has begun an outreach, targeting heads of over ninety [90] schools in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem [KEEA] Municipality of the Central region.

The programme dubbed “adopt a school’’ project is a collaboration between IEPA and the KEEA Municipal Directorate of Education.

A digital forensics laboratory has been inaugurated at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi to offer postgraduate courses in forensic science and upgrade the skills of investigators and personnel of the security agencies.

The laboratory, which was put up by the KNUST and E-Crime Bureau, a private IT company, will also be used in the retrieval of digital evidence in disputed transactions, meeting disclosure requirements in civil claims and supporting insurance claims when a loss occurred.

It would also serve as training ground for personnel of the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA), the Narcotics Control Board (NCB) and the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) and also provide internship for students.
