THE NEW Patriotic Party (NPP) government has started a massive construction programme in some selected Senior High Schools (SHSs) in the country.

Quite a number of schools would witness massive improvement in their present infrastructural status.

The selected schools are expected to benefit from projects such as new dormitories, classroom blocks and dining halls, among others.

Deputy Education Minister, Yaw Osei Adutwum, said his outfit is anticipating an upsurge in student intake next year due to the free SHS programme.

“We know that definitely due to the free SHS the student population in the schools will increase next year, with its attendant congestion problems.

“And in order to avert a possibility of congestion in the schools, government has decided to construct dormitories, classroom blocks and dining halls in the schools.

“The move is to help provide the needed infrastructure to contain the expectant rising student population,” the deputy minister disclosed on Hello Fm in Kumasi.

According to Mr. Osei Adutwum, the government awarded contracts for the building projects three weeks ago, and was hoping that they would be completed on schedule.

The deputy minister hinted that the new projects were expected to be completed before the next academic begins.
