The “Old Toms”, led by the President of the 1985 year group, Mr Stephen Ayitey-Mensah, donated books that covers Science, Mathematics and Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
Mr Ayitey-Mensah said: “We the 1985 year group believe that if our young ones make good use of the books, they will excel in their exams and lift the name of the school within and outside Ghana.”
Master Yeboah Benjamin thanked the ‘OLD TOMS’ for the kind gesture and asked for more donations to help the school thrive on their success stories.
“On behalf of all the students, I would like to say a very big thank you to the ‘Old Toms’ for their support to our noble institution.
“We the students are going to put the books into good use so we would receive more donations from our seniors in future.”
The Headmaster of the School, Mr Cyril Kwadzo Dadey, who received the donations on behalf of the school thanked the old students for their support and also asked for more including computers to enhance the students in this modern era of education.
“These days schools rely on their old students for support and since I came in I have been very happy the way the ‘Old Toms’ of Aquinas have always come to their alma mater to help in one way or the other towards the development of the school.
“Today has been another great day as the 1985 year group have come with over 300 textbooks to donate to the library to boost learning,” he noted.
Mr Dadey called on other year groups to come to the aid of the school to help in whatever way to stock the library with the necessary books needed saying: “It is my hope that other year groups will emulate this good and shinning gesture to come and donate to the course of the school.”
