I have high hopes that the discipline will translate into positive outcomes so that Greater Kumasi Schools will be the best performing ones in this year’s WASSCE’’, the Mayor stated.


The mayor stated that previously students who completed their papers took to unruly behaviors with some destroying facilities on campus after their last papers.
