Nana Adu Gyamfi, Adontenhene of Asanteman, has advised students to be disciplined and serious with their studies so that they could become useful citizens in the future.
He urged them to avail themselves of the opportunity being offered them by their parents and government and develop their talents.
Nana Gyamfi was speaking at the 99th Speech and Prize Giving Day of the Adisadel College that was under the theme “Academic Excellence through Diligence and Discipline” and sponsored by the 1984 year group of the school, at the weekend at Cape Coast.
He advised students to eschew negative behaviors that could jeopardize their future.
Nana Gyamfi paid tribute to the founding fathers of the College, saying that it was through their hard work and dedication that the educational institution had become one of the best schools in the country and charged the students to “protect the gains” so far made.
Mr Yaw Opoku Atuahene, Managing Director of the Agricultural Development Bank (ADB), a former student of the College, noted that with discipline and hard work, the College had made significant achievements despite the challenges it had gone through.
He pledged financial support for the College and advised the school authorities to take adequate measures to prevent encroachment of the school land by private developers.
Mr Hubert Graham, headmaster, said the College had chalked academic success since he took over its administration in 2004.
He appealed to parents to cooperate with the College authorities in promoting discipline among the students.
Mr Graham called for the maintenance of the 4-year duration of senior high school programme and urged government to provide corresponding infrastructure to sustain it.
