On Tuesday, the 1977 class of Wenchi Senior High School (WESS), in the Bono area, donated a GH40,000 mechanized water facility to their old school.
The facility, which was built to alleviate the school’s ongoing water issue, would also spare pupils and teachers the time-consuming walk to gather water.
At the commissioning celebration, Rev. Dr. Ayensu Mensah, President of the 1977-year group of the Old Students Association (OSA), praised the contractor for doing a superb job to enhance academic activities.
Because WESS has dealt with a water crisis for so long, Rev. Dr. Mensah claimed that the project’s completion has offered a sigh of relief to the school’s students, staff, and former students.
He stated that access to water is a fundamental human right and a necessity of existence, adding that “supply of water is life.”
The group president pleaded with the school’s administration and personnel to utilize the facility wisely, care for it, and keep it safe so that future generations might profit from it.
The Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church in Ghana (MCG), Most Rev. Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo, a former student, encouraged instructors and students to work together to promote academic excellence.
By stating, “I achieved five grade A’s in my final exams at this same school,” the Presiding Bishop urged the kids to submit to the authority of their professors in order to do well on their final exam.
“Don’t see your teachers as being too strict on you,” he advised. You are not worried about them. Your teachers genuinely care about your success in life.
We hope that other people and institutions would follow suit, Very Fr. Twumasi Ampofo, the headmaster of WESS, said in thanking the 1977 class for the thoughtful gift to the school.
Most Rev. Ampofo stressed that “together we can make WESS great and strong,” stressing that nation-building is a shared responsibility and that government cannot accomplish everything on its own.
