Wesley Girls School celebrates 34th anniversary
A grand durbar has been held to mark the 34th anniversary of Kumasi Wesley Girls’ High School with an appeal for improved infrastructural development in the school.
Mrs Esi Oduro Asante, Headmistress of the School, made the appeal in her report during the celebration, which was also marked with a speech and prize giving day.
She said the school urgently needed a big dining hall and residential accommodation for teachers, to ensure effective teaching.
Mrs Oduro Asante explained that with the current students’ population of 2,626, there was an urgent need for a bigger hall that would ease the congestion in the temporal hall.
The Headmistress also hinted that most of the teachers stay far away from campus and this greatly affects teaching and learning as well as the maintenance of discipline in the school.
She, therefore, appealed to government, the Methodist Church, the Parent-Teacher Association, non-governmental organisations, philanthropists and well-meaning Ghanaians to come to the aid of the school.
In his address as the guest speaker, Most Rev Professor Emmanuel Kwaku Asante, Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church, Ghana, attributed the current waywardness of the youth to the problem of broken homes.
He urged parents to build happy and peaceful homes where children would be well nurtured to become responsible citizens of the nation.
Most Rev Prof Asante also urged the students to take their studies seriously to compliment the efforts of their parents and teachers as we as their own future.
Other dignitaries who graced the occasion included Nana Agyin Frimpong, Tafohene and Mr Anthony Akoto Osei, Member of Parliament for Tafo-Pankrono.
The ceremony, which was chaired by Mrs Doris Amoyaw, Diocesan Lay Chairperson of the Methodist Church, Kumasi, was also marked with the awarding of prizes to deserving students and staff who excelled in their various fields of endeavour.
