P.T.A. constructs dormitory, classroom for school


Cape Coast (C/R), March 11, GNA - The Parent/Teacher Association (P.T.A.) of the Aggrey Memorial A.M.E. Zion Secondary School, has been commended for initiating a multi-billion-Cedi Girls' dormitory and an 18-Unit classroom complex for the School.

The Right Reverend Dr. Godfred Zormelo, Chairman of the School's Board of Governors, made the commendation in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Cape Coast at the weekend, during the school's 60th anniversary, which coincided with the annual Speech and Prize-Giving Day.

Rt. Rev. Dr. Zormelo said the two projects would cost more than 10 billion cedis and called on all well wishers, concerned citizens, philanthropists and the government for funds and support to facilitate their completion.

He said that the Girls dormitory, which was almost completed, would accommodate more than 500 students, while the classroom complex would also house the district library and teachers' common room. Rt. Rev. Dr. Zormelo said members of the Board of Governors were satisfied with the performance of the P.T.A. and appealed to the Association to continue with its commitment to improve the lot of the school.

He also praised branches of the school's past students association for what he described as "their wonderful and inspiring contributions" towards the running and growth of the school. Meanwhile, members of the Accra branch of the past students association, have donated ten sewing machines as part of the school's 60th anniversary, for the Home Economics Department to enhance teaching and learning.

Mr. Kwesi Appiah-Danquah, Headmaster, promised individuals and organisations that their contributions would be put to good use.
