The Ministry of Education has begun deploying smart tablets to Senior High School (SHS) students across the country, after President Nana Akufo-Addo launched the Ghana Smart Schools Project (GSSP) in March this year.

Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, said about 70,000 smart tablets had already been distributed to 30 of the 450,000 schools slated to get them under the first phase of the exercise.

He explained that the distribution is carried out using an automated system that ensures that only students captured in the Senior High School Secretariat database are served.

To ensure that only eligible students receive the tablets, Dr. Adutwum indicated that serial numbers have been assigned to each student so as to identify who is using a certain device.

Opoku Ware School, Bosomtwe Girls, OLA SHS at Kenyasi, St. James SHS, Bosomtwe STEM Academy, Osei Adutwum SHS, Wesley Girls’ SHS, Abomosu STEM, Mamfe Methodist SHS, Achimota SHS, Applied Technology Institute, Accra Technical Training Centre (ATTC), Awaso STEM, Kpasenkpe SHS, and OIC are the schools that have so far received the smart tablets.

The rest are Aburi Girls SHS, Nyakrom Senior High Technical School, St. Augustine’s College, Ghana Senior High Technical School, Ahantaman Girls’ SHS, Tarkwa SHS, Accra Academy, Mawuli School, Afua Kobi Ampem Girls’ SHS, Worawora SHS, Damongo SHS, Nandom SHS, Bolga Girls’ SHS, Notre Dame Girls’ SHS, and Koase Senior High Technical School.
