During the 60th anniversary launch of Bawku Senior High School in Accra, Reverend Dr. Sylvester Agalga, the Headmaster of the school, stated that the Bawku conflict has caused some teachers to seek transfers, and some even declined their postings. He also mentioned that the conflict has affected student enrollment and punctuality, as students tend to miss school when the conflict escalates.
Additionally, the school is facing infrastructural challenges such as inadequate furniture, under-resourced ICT laboratory and library, and a broken fence wall that poses a security threat. Dr. Agalga called on the government and old students to assist in fixing these issues.
Despite these challenges, the school has a pass rate of over 60% in the 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination, and Alhaji Abdallah Achuluwor Otito, the Bawku SHS Old Students Association Global President, urged old students to contribute their resources to uplift the school's image and address its infrastructural needs.
Established on October 11, 1963, Bawku Senior High School is a co-educational institution with a current population of 2,448 students and 189 staff members.
