After twenty (20) years of a defunct Board of Governors for Diaso Senior High School (DIASS), a new one has been constituted to manage the affairs of the school.

In his opening response, the Chairman of the occasion, Mr Albert Joseph Koduah, the former Manager and Head of Security and Fraud Unit of GCB Bank Ltd, recounted
that, “It is this vision to make DIASS one of the best performing schools in the areas of academics, hands-on skills, discipline and morality, good citizenship, sports and games, etc., that has energised me to be the chairman of this august occasion.”

In addition, the former Chief Inspector of Ghana Police Service of the Criminal Investigations Department, admonished the Board to work in collaboration with Nananom, the District Assembly, Member of Parliament, District Education Service, the management of DIASS, and the good people of the land to ensure lasting success.

The headmaster under whose tenure this historic occasion took place, Rev. Samuel Williams Quaynor, emphasized the need for such a Board which has been missing in action for the past 20years. He expressed his delight for the Board to assist him in ensuring that great DIASS improves on her current academic performance of being the fifth (5) the best school in Central Region in the 2020 WASSCE. “The over 1000 students would be glad to see the 600 girls and 400 beds boys dormitories which are about 85% complete to be occupied,” he asserted.

Declaring the new Board duly inaugurated, the Central Regional Director of the Ghana Education Service, Mrs Martha Owusu Agyeman, by Section 14 of the Education Act, 1961 (Act 87), urged members of the Board to collaborate with the head and management of the school rather than fighting them. She also advised them to always consider what they can do for the school and not what the school can do for them.

In an acceptance speech, the Chairman of the new Board, Mr Richmond Koduah, a proud native of Diaso and a lecturer of Wisconsin International University College said, “despite the challenges that confront great DIASS, looking at the academic backgrounds, professional legacies and experiences of this solid Board, I am of the firm believe that we can surmount these challenges.”

In conclusion, he iterated, ” With God’s help and your unflinching support, we accept the mandate to govern this reputable institution.”

What is more? In their usual magnificent glowing kente clothes, the Chiefs and elders who represented Nana Agya Ameyaw II, the Diasohene were thrilled with joy that the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service had finally headed to their years of a plea for a Governing Board for their school.
