Old students to renovate sickbay
Apam, Nov. 16, GNA - The 1978 year group of Apam Secondary School Old Students Association (ASSOSA) has decided to rehabilitate the school's sickbay to enable it to provide quality health service to the students.
The group would re-ceil it, provide new beds and mattresses, bed sheets and drip stands as part of the rehabilitation.
Mr. Raymond Amanfu, Chief Manager at the Bank of Ghana and a member of the group, said this at a homecoming visit by ASSOSA to the school at the weekend.
He said their decision to rehabilitate the sick bay was informed by the fact that it was the school that had brought them that far and that it was time to show their appreciation for what their old school had done for them.
Mr. Amanfu cautioned the students against making the place a rendezvous for dodging classes and other activities.
He advised the students against adopting some dubious means like "sakawa" and occultism to achieve success in life saying it was only through hard work that they could secure a better future.
Mr. Archibold Kobena Fuah, the Headmaster, said the school recorded the best result in the WASSE for about a decade now.
He said out of the 495 candidates presented, 305 passed, with good grades in all the eight subjects, 117 in seven subjects, 17 passed in six subjects with no one failing in all subjects.
He said the school had produced great men and women which the students could look up to as role models.
Mr. Fuah cautioned old students against visiting their Alma Mater to incite students against school authorities as a way to settle personal scores.
He urged them to regard whatever problem they had with school authorities as over as soon as they left school.
Mrs. Charlotte Obeng, National President of ASSOSA, commended the Headmaster and the staff and assured them of the support of the association at all times.
She expressed concern about inactivity of some old students who had lost touch with the school completely and urged them to remember hey owed it a duty to pay back a little of what the school had invested in them.
The old and continuing students later organized a clean-up exercise in the school and some parts of Apam.
