The 2014 batch of the Abuakwa M/A Junior High School B, has rallied to support their former school, addressing some pressing challenges it faces.
The former students undertook a refurbishment project, including painting and tiling the ICT room, to revitalize the school’s infrastructure.
Additionally, they donated computers, furniture, and other learning materials valued at thousands of cedis.
Established in 2005, the school has grappled with numerous obstacles, creating an unwelcoming learning environment.
The ageing structure has deterred potential new students from enrolling.
Owusu Philip, a member of the group, expressed their motivation to support the school due to its deplorable state.
He emphasized that their efforts aim to promote a conducive teaching and learning environment, ensuring the school remains one of the best-performing institutions in the municipality.
Philip encouraged the current students to study diligently to become influential figures in the country, empowering them to give back to their alma mater in the future.
The headmaster, Yaw Frimpong, lauded the group for alleviating the school’s challenges and emphasized that their support would significantly enhance academic excellence.
He also appealed to the government to assist in completing the school’s only toilet facility which is crucial for the students’ well-being.
