The University of Cape Coast Practice Senior High School is unable to absorb all the 556 fresh students posted to the school by the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) under the free SHS policy.

Overall, the school could only admit 400 students.

According to the Headmistress of the school Paulina Nyankah, the boarding facilities in the school could only accommodate eighty girls and twenty boys and therefore advised parents to look for available hostels closer to the school for their wards pending the completion of the school’s dormitories.

As part of measures to contribute their quota in equipping young children with the basic needs to have a better education, EDENation and Saving Soles, two non-governmental organisations have donated school materials including bag, sandals and shirts to some 25 children in the Apewosika, Kwesipra communities in Cape Coast.

The children some already in school and others yet to be enrolled by the NGO, were between the ages of 6 to 12.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, the Chief of Apewosika, Kokoado Nana Kweku Enu III applauded the initiative and expressed appreciation to members of the NGO, for their kind gesture and encouraged them to continue the good work they have started in making sure no child is denied the right to education.

Developers along the beaches in Cape Coast who have been identified by the CCMA as having flouted road reservation demarcations have defied the Assembly’s deadline of September 4 to demolish their structures.

City authorities as well as sections of the general public have expressed environmental and safety concerns with the springing up of unauthorized structures at the seafront.

The CCMA has explained that apart from the possibility of the activities of these developers speeding up coastal erosion, their structures also lie within the reservation of the Cape Coast Takoradi Highway.
