Headmistress for the school, Mrs Elizabeth .A. Addo expressed delight at how far the school has grown with the help of the staff and students.

“It is a privilege and an honour to have this array of personalities here today to share with us our story for the past 75 years. A cursory look around confirms the untold story of hard work, discipline and results oriented staff and students.”

Mrs Addo in an interview with GNA, appealed to stakeholders to come on board to help propel the school to higher heights for better academic performances.

“We don’t have any boarding facility, we need accommodation for both students and staff, so we could admit students from outside Accra.

“We want to get some flats for our teachers so they could help control students when we get the dormitories. We are appealing to old students, Ghana Education Service, the Government and stakeholders to help get us an 18 unit flat,” she said.

On educational materials, Mrs Addo said the school lacks information and communications technology (ICT) in the library.

“We are living in a technological world, but we don’t have ICT at the library to help student’s access modern books and tools online, to help in their studies, which is a major setback for us,” she added.

A former student, Mr Marterson Armah, who was the guest of honour, urged the students to aspire to be the best in life and not settle for less.

“Excellence in education surpasses everything, if students want to go forward they should aspire to be the best and not mediocrity.

“Government policies should always benefit students to achieve this educational excellence. There are other stakeholders who have never been identified, thus the community.

“The community involves the traditional leaders, they should help in anyway possible to make this achieving educational excellence a reality,” he said.
