History of Lassie-Tuolu Senior High
The school was established on 3 March 1995 by a Catholic church with Archbishop Emeritus Gregory Kpiebaya who was the Bishop of Wa in the 1980s. The initial idea was from the chief of Jenebob at that time to cater for the educational need of the youth in that locality. With financial support from a parish in Germany called St. Ignatius and the parish Chairman, Bernhard Nistchke, the construction work was started in 1992.
The school finally started on 3 March 1995 with one hundred and twenty students (120) comprising 80 boys and 40 girls. This was the first time the Upper West Region had a mixed catholic school. The school was formally captured into the public system in 1997.
Lassie-Tuolu Senior High Programmes and Course
The school offers these following programmes
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.
