Kumasi High School ’99 year-group gives back to Alma Mater

The 1999 year group of students from Kumasi High School, a Kumasi based senior secondary school have given an aesthetic beauty to lawns and pavements within the school.

The project which was undertaken in front of the one storey science laboratory block cost the group an amount of 30,000ghana cedis.

At a brief handing over ceremony to the headmaster of the school, the chairman of the group, Mr Asare Boakye-Ansah expressed delight at the opportunity to give back to their alma mater.

According to him, ‘it had always been a desire by the group to do something tangible for the school that propelled them to the current places of endeavor’.

Throwing more light on why the year group decided to give the school the face-lift, Mr Boakye-Ansah said they were bent on adding to the aesthetic beauty of the school after they attended the school’s 50th anniversary celebration recently.

According to him, the group decided to do the lawns which were in a poor shape at their visit and added the pavements to it since that too was not properly laid.

He noted members of the group, including Collins Owusu Amankwah, incumbent Member of Parliament for Manhyia-North Constituency came together to plan and contribute to the beautification exercise.

The leader noted the desire of the group to continuously add on to projects being undertaken in the school so as to ensure the school receives the kind of transformation that is comparable to any first class school anywhere in the world.

On behalf of the School, Mr George Amponsah -Duodu, Assistant Headmaster in charge of Administration who deputized for the Headmaster expressed profuse appreciation to the 1999 year group for the gesture.

He noted the struggle the school goes through to put its infrastructural and aesthetic structure in place every year, adding the cost had been huge.

Mr Amponsah-Duodu therefore welcomed the kind gesture of the group and wished that other year groups emulate same so as to ensure the school takes its rightful place in the country.

He, however, urged the students who were present at the brief ceremony to keep the place in shape by watering the lawns periodically to ensure the flowers stayed in shape at all times.
