Bridging the Information Gap with GhanaHighSchools.com
GhanaHighSchools.com, a recent initiative by Dodoo Coding Club, aims to provide students with a centralized online resource containing information about all senior high schools in Ghana. The website was created to help thousands of final-year junior high school students easily and quickly decide on their school choices. With free access to the platform, the club has embarked on a nationwide school tour to raise awareness about the website and its benefits.
Spreading the Word: The GhanaHighSchools.com School Tour
The primary goal of the school tour is to reach as many junior high school students as possible, starting with schools in the Greater Accra region. Citizens of this country, especially students, need to hear about the website and how it will be of help to students.
By visiting various basic schools, the club members can introduce the website and its purpose to students, while also guiding them through the navigation process using laptops brought along on the tour. Students have expressed excitement and curiosity about the project and its creators, with schools like Golden Sky Academy, Mayflower Beacon School, Radiant Star Academy, Glorious Child, Pokuase M/A Basic, and many others welcoming the team.
