Accra, July 25, GNA
– The commissioning of a 52 bed capacity hostel for the Government Secretarial
School (GSS) comes off on Friday, August 28, in Accra.

The commissioning
would be performed by Madam Otiko Afisah Djaba, the Minister for Gender,
Children and Social Protection, to be assisted by the Head of Civil Service,
Nana Agyekum Dwamena.

A statement from the
Office of the Head of Civil Service (OHCS), signed by Tony Goodman, Head of
Public Relations on Tuesday said, as part of the ceremony, about 150 students
would be graduating from the School after completing a Full-Time Post-Senior
High Secretarial Course.

The 64th Graduation
would be 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 auspices
of the OHCS runs numerous programmes in the field of professional secretarial
training including the secretarial Course.

It also organises
capacity development programmes for Top Level Secretaries within the Public and
Civil Service to sharpen their skills and competencies for efficient and
effective service delivery at the middle and the top levels of the government
administration.

The GSS was
established in May 1952 by the British Colonial Administration and placed under
the Establishment Secretariat, now the OHCS. The GSS was mandated to offer
training and examine Secretarial staff of the Establishment Secretariat.

Since the
establishment, nationals and non-nationals have undergone training and
development and have contributed their quota in the socio-economic development
of the nation and beyond.
