Asantehene urges old students associations to support alma mater
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene, has advised old students associations in the country to show appreciation to their alma mater by partnering school authorities in their development agenda.
He said they should mobilize resources to provide the requisite logistics such as computers, furniture and other teaching aids to ensure quality education delivery.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu made the call in a speech read on his behalf at the commemoration of the 50th Anniversary celebration of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Primary School in Kumasi at the weekend.
He said ensuring an enhanced education delivery required a shared responsibility and that the time had come for parents, corporate bodies, non-governmental organizations and philanthropists to evolve pragmatic measures to augment efforts of school authorities to develop basic education.
The Asantehene commended the KNUST Primary school for raising professionals over the years and charged the school's staff to work extra hard to achieve higher laurels.
He cautioned the pupils to shun deviant behaviour and be disciplined to enable them realize their talents.
Prof. Kwasi Kwafo Adarkwa, Vice Chancellor, paid tribute to founders of the school as well as past managements for their commitment to duty which had made the school one of the best in the country.
