Achimota School our alma mater will be 90 years old in 2017.

Fellow Akoras,

As you all know, Achimota School our alma mater will be 90 years old in 2017.

 The 90th Anniversary Planning Committee has been working behind the scenes to put together a year-long programme of activities to celebrate this milestone.  The Committee is inviting Akoras to send their suggestions on:

  1. Possible Theme for the Year Long Anniversary
  2. Activities to consider

… through to the Executive Secretary at She will collate them and forward them for consideration by the Committee.  Please copy the Planning Committee at

As “thought starters”, please consider themes inspired by the following:

  • “To subjugate ourselves that we may rule” (Subjugation as a path to true leadership / servant leadership)
  • Living waters to a thirsty land
  • Ideals on which Achimota was founded (respect for all that is true and lasting value in the old African culture, beliefs and ways of life; willing and humble service of the educated for the uneducated; mutual understanding and co-operation between Christians of all denominations, and the growth of that spirit in which all the churches shall be united again; friendship, respect and co-operation between all races on equal terms)
  • 3Hs Head, Heart and Hand
  • Relevance of the Achimotan Vision to Education today
  • Role of Achimota in Ghana

Please do not be limited by these though.   If you find that you have other themes that may be more relevant, please do not hesitate to share them.

The winning theme will entitle the proposer to 2 tickets to attend the Fund Raising Dinner Dance and Awards Night that will crown the year-long activities in December 2017.

Deadline for submission of all suggestions in either category is midnight GMT on Friday 28th October, 2016.

The suggestions which are feasible will be incorporated into the draft programme. The final programme will be presented to the OAA Executive Committee for approval and circulation.

Year Groups Secretaries and Secretaries of various groupings in the OAA at home and abroad are encouraged to resend the contact details of their members to the Executive Secretary to enable her update the OAA database to ensure that as many Akoras as possible are kept abreast with what is happening, especially with the 90th Anniversary.

The secretaries have up to the end of October 2016 for their submission. The Committee would like to reach out to Akoras via social media, emails, the print media and the electronic media.

Let’s all get ready to make this one great Achimotan Celebration.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

Eunice Quarcoopome                                                                                                       Executive Secretary, OAA
