Keta Senior High Technical Anthem

Once to every man and nation
Comes the moment to decide
In the strife of truth with falsehood
For the good or evil side
Some great cause, God’s new Messiah
Offering each the bloom with blight
And the choice goes by forever
Twixt that darkness and the light


Then to side with truth is noble
When we share her wretched crust
Ere her cause bring fame and profit
And ’tis prosperous to be just;
Then it is the brave man chooses while the coward stands aside
Till the multitude make virtue of the faith they had denied


By the light of burning martyrs, Christ
Thy bleeding feet we track
Toiling up new Calv’ries ever with the cross that turns not back;
New occasions teach new duties
Time makes ancient good uncouth
They must upward still and onward
Who would keep abreast of truth.


Though the cause of evil prosper
Yet the truth alone is strong;
Though her portion be the scaffold
Aand upon the throne be wrong
Yet that scaffold sways the future
And behind the dim unknown
Standeth God within the shadow
Keeping watch above His own.

History of Keta Senior High Technical

The foundations of Keta secondary school were laid in rented premises, when a group of people came together to create a second cycle institution that will serve as a conduit for the numerous first cycle schools in the area of Keta and its immediate milieu. On the 27th of February 1953, the school started under the direction of Nathan Quao, becoming the first headmaster of the school.

On November 4 1960, foundation was laid at the present site for the construction of buildings to cater for students of Keta secondary school and on September11 1961, the first batch of students moved to the new site to formally start education activities at the present location of the school.

New pupils are admitted in September every year through a computerized system under the control of the Ghana Education Service.

The system works based on the results of an entry examination known as the Basic Education Certificate Examination (B.E.C.E). This examination is held for junior high schools at various centres throughout the country.

Entry Forms for the above examination are obtained from the West African Examination Council (W.A.E.C) through the headteachers of the respective junior high schools within the country. Once the computerised selection process is completed, the list of admitted students are made available by the Ghana Education Service to the school. The list is then made public through the school’s notice board.

An opportunity is also given to foreign nationals who wish to apply for admission into the school through a written entrance examination organised by the school.

Students from other senior high school or fresh senior high school starter who wishes to continue the education at the school can also contact the school's adminstration through the contact list provided in the contact section of this page.

After a student gains admission, he is given the school's official prospectus. This book helps new students about the school and all that is required of them.
