91st Speech and Prize-giving Day

With a student population of 3,933 students who are in the hands of 146 teaching and 131 non-teaching staff, Ms Addo said the school’s current enrolment figures were the highest in the history of the school.

Delivering the keynote address, Dr Maame Yaa Bonsua Norman, a Robotics Coach, said it was regrettable that technical education was relegated to the background and its products among the most unrecognised in the country.

Dr Norman, who is also the Co-President of OAA ‘93 Year Group, said the private sector should have partnership with institutions to provide internship opportunities as part of technical and vocational training curriculum.

The toast for the day was, however, a form one student, Miss Afua Manukure Ansah, who walked away with seven prizes—Core Mathematics, Integrated Science, Elective Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, the Akora Kwaso Akompong Memorial Prize for the Overall Best Student in the Sciences, as well as the Akora Harold and Yvonne Esseku Prize for the Overall Best Student in the Sciences.

Work is progressing steadily on the construction of a perimeter wall around the Achimota School lands to ward off encroachers and provide adequate security for the school.

At the 91st Speech and Prize-giving Day of the school in Accra last Saturday, the Headmistress of the school, Ms Joyce Rhodaline Addo, said “encroachment, a major security challenge we faced over the years, is being dealt with decisively.”

She said with the backing of a court ruling, the Ministry of Education, through the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund), was constructing a 10-kilometre perimeter wall to protect the school from encroachment. The project is being undertaken by the Engineers Regiment of the Ghana Armed Forces.
