WASSOSA 1977 donates corn mill, vegetable grinding machines to alma mater


The 1977 year group of West Africa Senior High School Old Students Association (WASSOSA) has handed over a corn mill and vegetable grinding machines to support the school.

This kind gesture was also followed with an extension of the school’s kitchen to create convenience in the use of the donated machines. This happened after the attention of the old students were drawn to the situation at the school’s kitchen.

The group also promised to deliver a flour milling machine in addition by December, 2022 to ease the pressure of carrying foodstuffs outside the campus to process it.

Headmistress of the school, Ms. Shine Ofori, commended the group for taking such a step, which has transformed the school’s kitchen, saying their contribution to the development of the school will forever be remembered.

As part of the day’s activities, the school also inaugurated a 13-member board to assist with the administration of the school. This comprises teaching and non-teaching staff, Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) Chairman, old students, a representative from the assembly, among others.

The Regional Director of Education, Monica Ankrah, during the inauguration of the reconstituted board of governors charged members of the board to foster harmonious relationship between the school and the community.

They were also tasked to bring on board their expertise and experiences to help project the positive image of the school community.

“As board members, you must live above reproach. You should always think of what you can do individually and as a board to improve conditions in the school, rather than what the school can do for you. Do not wait till problems develop in the school before you come here.

“Pay regular visits to the school. Know the vision, aspirations and challenges of the school authorities and try to join hands with them to find solutions for the betterment of the school. It must be noted, however, that such visits should not be intended for witch-hunting purposes,” she noted.

She took the opportunity to address the final year students, urging them to demonstrate good behaviour toward their staff as they prepare for their exams. She cautioned them to avoid receiving condemnation from the board, but commendations.

The outgone board chair, Ms. Esther Nancy Tettey, urged the reconstituted board to try within their capacity to address some of the existing challenges in the school to help transform it.

“We appeal to the incoming board to take up the issues enumerated, work with management for more improvement in the various facets of the school,” she said.
