The School > School Heads Alexander Garden (Rev) Fraser CBE
1925-1929

 At Achimota School, Rev. Fraser and his staff, including Dr. Aggrey, shared the belief that Africans should not be turned into pseudo-Europeans but taught to retain the highest values of their own culture. This is reflected in the “Ideals Upon Which Achimota Was Founded”. Rev. Fraser composed the School Hymn that also embodies Achimota ideals. Achimota stands for:

[edit]Ideals of Achimota

  • The best use of the minds and bodies which God has given us.
  • An equal opportunity for boys and girls.
  • Respect for all that is true and of lasting value in the old African culture, beliefs and way of life.
  • Willing, humble service of the educated for the uneducated.
  • Mutual understanding and cooperation between Christians of all denominations, and the growth of that spirit in which the churches shall one day be united again.
  • Friendship, respect, and cooperation among all races on equal terms.
  • The belief, on which all else rests, in Jesus Christ as the revelation for all times and all peoples of the love of God, and as the guide and pattern of our lives.[5]

Rev. Fraser’s legacy also lives on through the Old Achimotan Association (“OAA”) that he founded.
