As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the National Service Scheme (NSS), a delegation from the NSS Directorate in the Savannah Region, led by Mr. Abudu Yahaya, the NSS regional director recently visited the Damongo Girls Model Junior High School.
Their visit was aimed to assess the impact of NSS and for that matter the success story of the National service personnel at Damongo girls model school.
During a brief address, Mr. Abudu Yahaya highlighted the significance of their visit, stating that it was part of their activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the NSS.
He also announced that they would be participating in the NSS at 50 celebration launch scheduled for October 10, 2023 in Accra.
Madam Najat Seidu Nyen-nje, the headmistress of the Damongo Girl’s Model JHS, praised the positive influence of the NSS on the students lives.
She emphasized that the contributions of NSS personnel, particularly in academic development, had been substantial.
She recounted how the presence of an NSS teacher for Ghanaian language had significantly improved the students performance in that subject.
Madam Najat also highlighted the achievements of an NSS ICT teacher who had helped some students win awards in the Ministry of Communications Girls in ICT program.
She also acknowledged the role of NSS personnel in organizing extracurricular activities, which had led to increased student enrollment and reduced absenteeism.
Established in 2016 with just 35 students and a staff of 5, Damongo Girls Model Junior High School has seen remarkable academic and extracurricular progress, thanks to the dedication of both regular teachers and the NSS personnel assigned to the school.
The durbar, held on September 28, 2023, was attended by local chiefs, teachers, NSS personnel, and students from the school, marking a significant moment in recognizing the NSS’s contributions to education.
