Old students (1997) year group of the Ghana Senior High School (Ghanasco) in Tamale, have refurbished the school’s library at the cost of Ghc42,000.
The refurbished modern library formed part of the old students’ agenda to help solve some of the school’s challenges.
The group’s Spokesperson and also the incumbent Member of Parliament for Tamale North Constituency, Alhaji Alhassan Suhuyini, said they offered the support after assessing the school’s needs.
He reassured the school’s management of further support to improve teaching and learning.
Alhaji Alhassan Suhuyini disclosed the group’s intention to further upgrade the library with Information Communication Technology tools by the end of 2018.
“We started as a social media platform just trying to reconnect after about 20 years of leaving school and through that social re-connection there was a suggestion by many of us that others embraced for us to identify a project that will go a long way to impact the growth of the school.”
“We selected a team to visit the school and to find out some of the challenges we could tackle so the team got back with a number of problems and we settled on the refurbishment of the library. It is one of many projects we have outlined.”
The school’s headmistress, Hajia Amina Musah thanked the group for the support.
She appealed to other year groups to emulate the 1997 year group’s shining example.
Hajia Amina Musah showed appreciation for the donation of three poly tanks by the Ashanti Regional branch of Old Ghanascans Association, as well as the refurbishment of the headmistress’ office and staff common room by the 1998 year group.
