Yendi Senior High School in the Yendi in the Northern Region of Ghana have launched its 50th Anniversary Celebration this year with its governing board and the schools’ authorities.

The anniversary was launched on behalf of the Northern Regional Minister, Mr Salifu Sa-eed. He said,” education was the bedrock development of every country and developed countries prioritize it before getting to their current stages”.

Mr Sa-eed said educational institutions like YESS deserve recognition as major contributors to the country’s development.

He said it was necessary for stakeholders to delegate roles in various anniversary programs

He said the government was investing in expanding educational facilities and their school was enjoying a two-storey 12-unit classroom building and a single dormitory building and hoping to add more.

He encouraged the students to take advantage of the opportunities and take their books and studies seriously.

Alhaji Mohammed Issah Abah, Deputy Director of Human Resource of the Regional Education office who read the speech on his behalf reminded students to be disciplined to achieve their goals.

Chief Bindana Ayuba Ziblim who represented Ya-Na Mahama Abukari ll appealed to the Headmaster, teachers and workers of the school to work hard to improve the performance of the school.

He said Ya-Na`s doors were opened to them for consultation.

Chief Alhassan Mustak Husein also addressed the Headmaster of the school in his welcome address.

He then stated emphatically that the school had 121 teachers, three assisting officials from the NABCO scheme and seven National Service Personnel with 60 non-teaching staff.

In his valediction, Alhaji Mohammed Haroon who was the former Regional Director of Education and chairman for the occasion called on the old student’s body and PTA to support the school with important teaching materials to help accelerate the teaching and learning process.

He urged the old Students with various positions in the country to lobby for projects for the school.

Established in September 1970, the school was initially meant to be a middle boarding school to enable access to basic education in the Northern Territories ‘ Eastern Corridor.

This later morphed into Yendi Secondary School in September 1970 to give the teeming youth, who completed basic school and were interested in secondary education, access to secondary education.

This started in the next academic year with an initial student population of 70 male students and seven females.

As the years have gone by, this figure has steadily increased and now the school has a total student population of 2,724.

The school is a boarding school with few students as a day.

The school’s first Headmaster was late Mr Cletus Bernard Teviu from 1970 to 1979, the second Headmaster was late Mr Abu Imoro from 1979 to 1982, and the present Headmaster is Chief Alhassan Mustak Husein, who has been the tenth Headmaster since 2016.
