Accra, July 25, GNA – Ms Otiko Afisah Djaba,
the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection would be the Guest
Speaker for the 64th Graduation Ceremony of the Government Secretarial School
(GSS).

The graduation is scheduled to come off on Friday,
August 28, at the forecourt of the school in Accra.

A statement signed by Mr Tony Goodman, the
Head of Public Relations at Head of Civil Service said the Minister, who would
be assisted by Nana Agyekum Dwamena, the Head of Civil Service, would commission
for use, a newly constructed 52-bed capacity hostel for the school.

The statement said the graduation was on the
theme: “Professional Secretarial Education and Training a Critical Tool for
National Development.”

The Government Secretarial School which is one
of the training institutions under the Office of the Head of Civil Service
(OHCS) runs numerous programmes in the field of professional secretarial
training.

The statement noted that one of the cutting
edge and system-wide training enhancement programmes was the full-time post
Senior High Secretarial course.

“It also organises capacity development
programmes for top level secretaries within the Public and Civil Service to
sharpen the skills and competencies of these beneficial secretaries for
efficient and effective service delivery at the middle level and the top rank
of Government Administration,” it stated.

The Government Secretarial School (GSS) was
established in May 1952 by the British Colonial Administration and placed under
the Establishment Secretariat now the OHCS.

GSS was mandated to offer training and examine
Secretarial staff of the Establishment Secretariat.

Since its establishment, young women and men
nationwide and internationally had undergone training and development in the
school.

The statement said some of the students
attained higher social status in the country.

“Some of our students can be found in the
Office of the President, Bank of Ghana, Ghana Commercial Bank, Agricultural
Development Bank, ECOBANK, National Investment Bank, and Prudential Bank
Ghana. 

Others are with Embassies and High Commissions,
the United National and Geneva.

The rest are impacting their rich experience
as teachers on our campuses,” the statement noted.
