Ghana News-Former students of Kumasi High School (KUHIS) who completed in 1997 have presented 50 pieces of dining hall tables to their alma mater.
The presentation follows a request made by the school’s headmaster when some old boys visited the campus to observe how the school was faring.
Presenting the special tables at a brief ceremony in the School last Friday, Mr Dominic Adu-Agyei, chairman for the ‘97year group expressed delight at the opportunity to give back to the school.
Kumasi High School, the chairman intimated set them up for their current endeavors.
According to him, many of the group’s members have gotten links for employment and to head high profile institutions just because they schooled at Kumasi High.
‘’It is always a pleasing experience to give back to the very school that gave us opportunity to study courses for our current endeavors and it is with this feeling that we decided to give these 50 dining hall tables that will sit 600 students at lunch, supper and breakfast’’, Mr Adu-Agyei (Dmension) noted.
Headmaster of the School, Mr Kwabena Asare Tuffuor profusely commended the 97 group for the gesture.
According to him, current students have had to struggle to have a place to sit or place their food to eat at the school.
This gesture as well as others by some year groups, the headmaster indicated will help to eliminate this worrying situation.
He, however, appealed to the group and other year groups to help construct a befitting structure for the counseling department.
Counselors, he noted have had to use the chairs on the compound to conduct their activities while other members sit under trees in the school for their sessions.
OLD BOYS CHAIR:
Speaking to this reporter, Isaac Nkrumah, Kumasi Branch Chairman of the Old Boys Association promised to support the school as and when they realize a need in the school.
Flanked by Goodman Sarfo Kantanka, Alex Agyepong and Godwin Kusi Gyesaw, all 97 members, the Kumasi Chairman said, ‘so far the old boys have helped in the construction of a library, an infirmary, a computer laboratory and other essential facilities for the school’.
Currently, the school is putting up a new assembly hall facility as well as a sports court with the latter being solely funded by an old boy’s father who is a Deeper Life Pastor.
The Old Boys recently mobilized about GHC 5,000.00 to support its contingent that participated in the National Science and Mathematics Quiz competition in Accra.
