The Tempane Senior High School has celebrated twenty-five years of serving both the Tempane and the Garu districts of the Upper East Region as the only second circle institution in the area.
Students from these areas are usually compelled to get sandwiched in this institution or compelled to move out of the district.
The closest district with good institutions is the Bawku Municipal which is not also safe due to the tribal conflict in that area.
The school which was established in 1998 in the then Garu/Tempane District has served as the backbone of education in the area.
In a colourful ceremony to mark the 25th anniversary of the school, management touted its achievements for the past two and half decades. It was also hinted that plans are advanced for the school to be upgraded into a tertiary institution.
Speaking at the ceremony, Member of Parliament for the Tempane constituency, Lydia Akamvariba pledged her support and also advised the girl child to take up their education seriously and dream of taking up higher positions at the national level in the future. She tasked them to be mindful of the gilts and shines men may display to them at this age.
On his part, the headmaster of the school, Patrick Azumah touted the achievements of the school since its inception in 1998 and stated that there is more room for improvement. He therefore called on parents to cooperate with management for the success of the School.
Furthermore, the senior prefect of the school also mentioned the good character harvested by students of the school and appealed to authorities to help the institution excel.
