Old Students of the Bolgatanga Senior High School (BIGBOSS) in the Upper East Region have donated some logistics to their Alma Mater to enhance teaching and learning in the school.
The school’s Alumni also known as TANGABISI made the presentation under one of its key projects dubbed “Teaching and Learning Enhancement Project”.
This was disclosed by President of the Big Boss Alumni, Mr M’bawine Atintande, in a speech read on his behalf at the eighth speech and prize day and the 49th anniversary celebration of the school.
He said the Association presented 18 Samsung tablets, two Servers, 10 USB WIFI dongles and 10 Computer SDRAM memory Cards to help upgrade the ageing computer in the school’s ICT lab.
According to the President, the Association supported the school with an amount of GHC24,500.00 to procure 13 electronic books (e-books) in Physics, Science and Mathematics, some quantities of hard copies of Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology books.
“It further presented additional logistics to enable the school to successfully participate in National Science and Maths Quiz competition last year”, he added.
Mr Atintande said the Association also organised Counseling sessions for students to help them to share their knowledge and experiences about issues that affect their studies.
He gave the assurance that Tangabisi was more poised now than ever, and would not relent in its efforts to make the Alma mater a better place for their successors.
The National President encouraged students to be disciplined and use appropriate measures to address their grievances as their quest to achieve academic success could only be possible through hard work and discipline.
Mr Ababu Afelibek, Headmaster of the school expressed gratitude to stakeholders for their immense contributions that had kept the school developing and used the occasion to appeal to government, past students and other benevolent organisations to come to the aid of the school by renovating staff bungalows, and construct dormitories among others.
Master Chris Emmanuel Anamoo, Senior Prefect of the school expressed gratitude to his predecessors for the enormous contributions towards the welfare of the school.
