Following the recent disturbances that occurred in Gyaama Pensan SHTS-Aboaso in the Kwabre East Municipality of Ashanti, the school has now gotten new Headmistress in the person of Mrs. Stella Ayele Bruce. Before her new appointment as Headmistress for Gyaama Pensan SHTS, Mrs Stella was an Assistant Headmistress Administration at Ejuraman Anglican SHS haven transferred from St. Monica SHS in Asante Mampong.
We recall that on the 21st of January, 2018 students of Gyaama Pensan SHTS went on rampage destroying property belonging to the school worth Thousands of Ghana Cedis to register their grievances against the then Headmaster for the school, Mr Boakye Yiadom. Among their grievances were an alleged ban on entertainment and sporting activities by the Headmaster.
The school was consequently closed down after police intervention to bring the horrific situation under control. Quickly, a seven member committee was constituted by the Kwabre East Municipal Chief Executive, Mr. Yaw Osei Assibbey in collaboration with the school’s Board of Governors to investigate into the matter. The committee was chaired by the former Kwabre East Municipal Education Director, Mrs. Christiana Ampeh.
The committee after its protracted sittings recommended among others the reposting of the Headmaster. It was in light of this that Mrs Stella was posted to the school to fill the vacuum created. In her maiden speech to the entire school family, she entreated everybody to serve as a good ambassadors for the development of the school. She also encouraged students to be law abiding and always use the accepted ways of airing their grievances. The Headmistress further lamented that ” the school’s name had been dragged to the gutters, but, if we all come together with positive mentality we can sanitize the school and place it on a very enviable height “.
