The number of female students gaining admission to Senior High Schools in the Ashanti Region has seen significant increase over the last four years.

According to the Regional Director of Education Mary Owusu Afriyie, a major factor to the increase is the implementation of the Free Senior High School programme. At the inauguration of a 12-unit classroom block at the Kumasi Anglican SHS, Madam Afriyie, said per GES’ statistics, the 2019/2020 academic year saw 142,853 females being enrolled out of 288,811 total student enrollment.

She described the steady growth in female enrolment as encouraging, explaining that it would help promote the country’s agenda of achieving gender equality and women empowerment.

The 12-unit block, constructed by Messrs Asumadu Construction and funded by the Ghana Education Trust Fund, under the ‘Emergency SHS Projects,’ is to create a conducive environment for teaching and learning.
