The Nkawkaw Senior High School (KAWSEC) Old Students Association, an alumni body of KAWSEC has cut sod for the construction of a clinic and nurses quarters for the school.
The project estimated at Gh¢250,000.00 is expected to be completed in six months and it forms part of the Association’s 50th anniversary celebration which comes on next year.
The clinic when completed is also expected to serve the school and the surrounding community.
At a short ceremony to commemorate the programme, Mr Daniel Owusu Koranteng, the National President of the Association, said the members decided to provide the clinic for the School because the school lacked a sick bay, where students can access quality health care services.
He expressed worry at the rate at which students of the School walked long distances when sick to have access to medical care.
Mr Owusu-Koranteng said the Association after the project would also engage medical officers and nurses to run the facility.
He therefore called on all old students to join the Association to contribute their quota to enable the Association to provide development projects to help uplift the image of the School.
Mr Robert Forson, the Head Teacher, thanked the Association for the gesture and promised to give out land on the school premises for any development projects.
He appealed to the old students, philanthropist and the government to assist the School with a vehicle and help to expand the hall into a multi- purpose assembly hall to ease congestion.
