Students Recessed - July 2009

On the 31st of July, 2009, school recessed for five weeks. On that day a lot of actvites took place by the students including drama, cultural dance, poem recitations, among others. Awards were also given to students who performed well at the end of term exams. The teaching volunteers were also honoured for their tremendous impact in the lives of the students and the school as a whole.

Mr. Osei Tutu Henry, headteacher of the school advised the students to be good children and law abiding to their parents and the nation in general as they go home for five weeks. He continued that students should take their studies seriously as they go home and shouldn't think there is nothing to learn at home for there are a lot of things to be learnt if they really want to be a genius.

Furthermore, the parents were also advised to take good care of their children as they come to them at home and not resort them to hard labour but to give them a room to enhance their educational career and not activities that would negatively influence their educational growth.
