400 senior high schools across 10 regions of Ghana are to get internet access as part of a Government-driven project.

The schools have been selected to benefit from the government’s  Senior High School Internet Access Project.

The Minister for Education, Ambassador Lee Ocran, said the project would provide internet access to schools to aid teaching and learning. 

The Minister called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to ensure that appropriate organisational structures were put in place to give way to the effective integration of ICT in Senior High Schools as well as issue appropriate guidelines on the use of the internet in the schools.
