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.

Some of the products include,  Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, the First Lady, Late
Squadron Leader Melody Millicent Danquah (Rtd), Africa’s first Female Pilot and
