Anthony Afful-Broni, Enoch Andrews Duodu


The study, conducted in Nyakrom Secondary Technical School in Ghana, sought to find out whether the teaching and learning space facilities were being used efficiently.  Structured and unstructured questionnaire items were utilized to elicit information from fifty (50) students in twelve (12) classes using stratified random sampling and ten (10) teachers and six (6) administrators using the purposive sampling method.  Interviews were conducted among the ten teachers and six administrators.  Data collected was analysed by means of descriptive statistics, frequency distribution tables and percentages.  The result of the study showed that contrary to the prevailing perception, Nyakrom Secondary Technical School had not exceeded its optimum enrolment and that the school could comfortably accommodate more than the existing 560 student population, if teaching and learning space facilities were efficiently utilized.  There was the need to plan an effective timetable that would take into consideration the spaces, class size and class enrolment.  Finally, it was revealed that the classrooms needed to be adequately furnished and the school should be provided with a well-equipped, spacious assembly hall for meetings and examinations to withstand the test of time.
