Old students of Tamale Business Senior High School (BISCO) have urged students of the school to ensure high academic standards and discipline are upheld in Northern Ghana’s first business school.

The old students said BISCO has been known over the years to be a center for academic excellence, hence the need for the students to ensure such standards are maintained by studying hard to acquire knowledge and pass their examinations.

The Kpandai District Finance Officer, Hajia Fati Forgo who herself is a past student of the school encouraged particularly female students to take their studies seriously and take up challenging courses that are male dominant.

She said despite very challenging conditions in the past, students were able to pass with distinction, noting that present students should do be doing better.

Madam Fati Forgo was speaking at the second home-coming of the school’s old students – Bisco Old Students Association (BOSA). The home-coming of BOSA comes, as the school prepares for its 60th anniversary celebration scheduled for next year.

Thousands of old students from various parts of the country converged at the school to participate in the home-coming. Present students had the opportunity to dine, interact and participate in various sporting activities with their seniors.

National President of BOSA, Alhaji Mohammed Nurudeen outlined some of the achievements of BOSA to include the construction of a sick bay and provision of some key infrastructure which helped the school to phase out the double track system in the school.

He however called on government and benevolent old boys to help in the construction of the inner roads of the school.

Mrs Susana Fati Braimah, Headmistress of the School commended the old students for their immense support to the school.

She however inadequate space at the girls’ dormitory, dilapidated dinning and assembly halls, unfurnished staff common room, unfurnished school library, among others as some of the challenges the school was faced with.
