Tsiame Senior High school is wailing for Infrastructure
The school had not seen any standard infrastructural expansion since it’s establishments.
The school was formed by Tsiame Youths Association (TYA) in 1997 to provide secondary education for the needy students which have graduated from the junior in the township of Tsiame and other villages around .
Meanwhile before it’s establishments the youths has constructed a 4- unit classroom block and later another 4 unit classroom block was executed by the association.
Sources disclosed that in 2006/2007 academic year , government came to absorbed the school into public senior high school and the expectation of the natives were high because they thought government will help face light the school but nothing else has been done about it.

The 8-unit classroom block put up by the youths association is being used as classroom blocks without electricity in any of the classroom blocks due to this problem, students are not able to go prep at night because there is no electricity on the campus to give light during the nights.

Also, the headmaster of the school is living in a rented apartment in the town which was sponsored by one Prof. JBK Aheto who is a native of the town and educationalist.

The main hotel project has been left uncompleted for three years now.
“Since the school do not have its own hotel or boarding facilities , the girls are occupping house given out by the board chairman and even that build couldn’t accommodate all of them so some of them are forced to rent their own apartments ,to talk of the boys ,another board member not the school has also given out his house ” A source disclosed.
