Environmental Sanitation is fundamental to health, survival, growth and development.
Having a healthy school environment sets a school on track for development. Asamankese
Senior High School is currently experiencing poor environmental sanitation. The main
objective of the study is to examine the attitudes of students and staff of Asamankese
Senior High School towards Environmental sanitation. The study adopted the descriptive
sample survey. The main instruments used for gathering the data for the study were
questionnaire and observation. This enabled the researcher to capture as closely as
possible, the attitudes of students and staff towards environmental sanitation. The sampled
population for the study consisted of 300 students and30 teachers from Asamankese Senior
High School in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Data collected were analyzed using
frequency counts and percentages. The study revealed differences in attitude towards
environmental sanitation among students and teachers. However, the general
environmental sanitation condition in Asamankese Senior High School is not up to
expectations. The research findings also showed that both students and teachers consider
water shortage and littering as major environmental problems in Asamankese Senior High
School. The study again found out that, inadequate dustbins accounts for the reasons why
students and teachers litter. To ensure good environmental sanitation in schools, the study
recommended that, there is the need to train teachers with suitable sanitation strategies
while they are still at the Universities Colleges of Education. This will ensure that, by the
time they come out, they are already acquainted with sanitation issues and strategies for
their promotion and the roles they have to play to bring about effective sanitation practices
in our schools.
