The Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Akuapem Presbytery over the weekend inducted Ms Rosemond Bampo as the newly appointed Headmistress of the Aburi Girls’ Senior High School (SHS) at Aburi in the Eastern Region.

Reverend Dr Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante, Akuapem Presbyterian
Chairperson, who inducted the Headmistress, urged her to continue with
the good work demonstrated by her forerunners. He said so many people take up leadership positions to service their varied interests such as fame and prestige but expressed the hope that Ms Bampo would use her term to facilitate national development. “Do not copy any leadership management of your predecessor, demonstrate your own qualities and be yourself,” he said.

Rev Dr Mante called on the teaching and non-teaching staff to
co-operate with the headmistress in the development of the school.
On moral discipline, Rev Dr Mante cautioned teachers who would
not accept to be morally upright to seek transfer, saying the school
was established to train and bring up young girls in the fear of the
Lord for the development of the country.

The Presbytery Chairperson on behalf of the Presbyterian church
of Ghana presented a brand new laptop computer and a car to Ms Bampo
to enable her perform her duties effectively and diligently during her
tenure. Ms Bampo thanked the stakeholders of the school for the
confidence reposed in her. “I assure you all that l shall fulfil your expectation of me as headmistress by employing all my knowledge, skills and energies to work with God being my guide,” she said.

She also expressed gratitude to her predecessors for the solid
foundation that they laid for the school. Ms Bampo envisaged that the school would be lifted to a pedestal that was befitting of its status as a pacesetter for SHS in the country.

She appealed to parents, guardians, teaching and non-teaching
staff, old girls and students to support in moving the school from its
present stage to better heights. She announced that the school was currently forging partnership with some overseas institutions to enhance the academic performance of the students.

Ms Bampo, who holds a masters degree in educational management
from the University of Cape Coast is the sixth Headmistress of the
school. She took over from Mrs Sylvia Asempa who was headmistress from
2002 to 2011.

She has two publications “Improving Guidance and Counselling at
Ghana Secondary School, Koforidua”, (2001) and “The two way Oral
Communication in the teaching of History”, (1982) to her credit.

She is an old girl of the school, a Presbyterian and married with
two children.
