Accra, May 06, GNA - The 1984/85 and 1993 year groups of the Accra Girls Old Students Association (AGOSA) have handed over two washroom projects to the school to enhance its sanitation challenges.
The Old Girls handed over the facilities over the weekend as a way of giving back to their Alma mater.
The Pink House washroom project, which had 16 bathrooms and six toilets after the refurbishment by the 1993 group, has got an additional six bathrooms and two more toilets with a handwashing sink.
The Science Block washroom facility worth GHC 85, 000 included; 10 cubicle water closets, five hand washing basins, overhead tanks and other washroom materials.
Mrs Linda Adwoa Holdbrook Asiamah, the President of the 1984/85 year group, handing over the facility to the school said it was the little they could do to support the school knowing their longtime challenges.
She said the facility was of high quality and urged other year groups to support the school in that same way for them to meet their real standard.
She said they had adopted the Science Block and would gradually transform the place for the benefit of the students, as it was their way of giving back to the school that groomed and shaped them to be who they were.
Mrs Joyce S. Acolatse, the Headmistress of the School, expressed gratitude to the 1984/85 year group and the 1993 group for their support in ensuring that their Alma Mater was in good condition.
She said washrooms had been the biggest challenge of the school as some were abandoned due to their deplorable state and called on the Old Girls for assistance in that regard as government was already doing a lot for the school.
She said although government was doing all it could to put up a new dormitory to accommodate the increased number of students they had due to the Free Senior High School, the school also needed extra classrooms to make teaching effective.
Mrs Acolatse said in the same vain they were in need of staff bungalows to accommodate teachers to enable them effectively monitor the girls on campus and gave the assurance that the facilities would be constantly maintained to ensure that it lasted for a long time.
The occasion was used to organise leaver’s service for the 2018 final year students and to induct them into the association.
