WASSCE 2021: 4 St. James Students Grab WAEC Topmost Awards
Four alumni of St. James Seminary Senior High School in the Bono Region will be picking four top awards as a result of their excellent performance in the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The four former students; Ohene-Amoani Kwaku and Korang Agyei Ransford Nana have been adjudged as the 2nd and 3rd Prize Winners, Sito Onyashiembor as the Best Candidate in the Business Programme and Abokua Francis as the Best Candidate in the General Programme (Arts Option).
The award by WAEC Endowment Fund instituted years ago honours candidates who excel in the Council’s examination.
In a letter addressed to the school, WAEC indicates that the students together with others will be honoured at a ceremony to be held at a slated time.
St James’ Seminary was established in 1978 by the late Bishop of the Sunyani Catholic Diocese, Most Reverend James Kwadwo Owusu.
The school which initially trained only seminarians scored higher in WAEC’s O’ Level Examinations until it opened up in the early 90s and was absolved by the government to accept non-seminarians.
It has over the years risen to become the best school in Ghana and West Africa and produced some of the best WASSCE students in Ghana and West Africa on several occasions.
The school has won several laurels both in the Sciences and Arts.
In 2015, the school was awarded at the National Best School’s Awards as the best performing Senior High School in Science and Mathematics.
Similarly, the school was awarded in 2016 for producing the overall best candidate in General Science, and the third overall best candidate in WASSCE.
Also in 2017, the school received the West African Examination Council’s (WAEC) Distinction Award and an award at the 3rd Best Schools Ceremony at Koforidua for being the best performing Senior High School in WASSCE (Science).
