24/7 CAMPUS SECURITY
ENSURING THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF THE STUDENTS ENTRUSTED TO OUR CARE IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO SAMMO SHS. IT IS A RESPONSIBILITY WE TAKE VERY SERIOUSLY.
From dusk ’til dawn every day — access to the campus is limited to only one gate that is guarded by security personnel. Day Students are required to sign in & out when entering and leaving campus and Boarding students are NOT allowed to go to the gate and beyond unless they are holding exeats or permission note from their respective House Masters/Mistresses.
Along with maintaining security on campus, Campus Security also makes sure all fire safety and security alarms are properly working, including assisting and arranging routine annual safety drills for students, faculty and staff. A comprehensive emergency response plan is also in effect on our campus.
The Sammo library is well-stocked with a variety of literature, including textbooks, encyclopedias, periodicals, journals, WAEC Past Questions and national dailies, among others. The Library offers Reference and Lending Services to the staff and students of Sammo School. However, adults and students from other institutions may be offered Reference services during vacation. The Library at our New Site is similarly organised.
OUR COMPUTER LABORATORY
SAMMO Senior High School boasts of a state-of-the-art/ultramodern computer laboratory. The laboratory containing over 45 modern computers, an overhead LED Projector and an Interactive Board has high speed wifi internet connectivity. Combining the easiness of an Interactive Board with the power of a computer, the whiteboard allows our highly experienced teachers to deliver vigorous lessons, write notes, draw in digital ink and save their work – all with the simple touch of a marker or finger. With this interactive approach to learning, we hope to improve learning outcomes for our students by enforcing a more hands on approach to learning, where students are encouraged to interact and engage in lessons, using all of their senses.
The school has a well furbished infirmary/sick bay on site which is manned 24/7 by two dedicated Professional Nurses/health specialists. Also, the school has arrangements with the District Hospital in Cape Coast and the clinics in the Moree and Yamoransa townships to provide for the medical needs of students in special cases. Students at the Boarding House in the Yamoransa Campus who require other exceptional medical attention must obtain a chit from their Senior Housemaster/mistress in the morning before leaving for the hospital. A School vehicle conveys students to the hospital. Furthermore, the School has provided sick-bays in both the Boys’ and Girls’ dormitories where students convalescing could conveniently be isolated and monitored by the school Nurses until recovery. The medical expenses of all students who are cared for at the Hospital and clinics are borne by Parents/Guardians, hence parents/guardians are advised to provide Health Insurance (NHIL CARDS) for their wards, otherwise such medical expenses (from outside hospital) are placed as an additional item on the students’ bills.
OUR SCHOOL STORE
The School has an onsite Shop which offers for sale materials like textbooks, stationery, outing dresses, ceremonial dresses, school neck tie, school crest, and school cloths. As much as possible, all students are supplied with government textbook and billed. Also, there’s onsite PROVISIONS STORE where students can purchase food items.
SAMMO CANTEEN SERVICES
The School has provided state of the art canteens on the various campuses where Day students, in particular, and the general student-body could take their meals and snacks during school breaks. Various dishes are sold by vendors upon the recommendations of the Schools’ food committees. Vendors undergo regular medical examination.
The school has a big fully air conditioned Mercedes Benz Bus as well as a Mini Tata Bus to ferry students who as part of the schools own programmes, go on field trips outside the school. Also, all day students residing in Cape Coast, Moree (junction), and Yamoransa are transported to and from school every school day. The students who use the bus service pay a user-fee which is worked out and added to their school bills.
