Forces Primary and JHS at Burma-Camp, Accra has rolled out a series of activities to mark its 50th anniversary celebration in September this year.

As part of the celebrations, there would be a Speech & Prize-giving ceremony to award schoolchildren who have excelled in various disciplines.

The anniversary is on the theme: “Forces at 50; Honouring the Past, Celebrating the Present and Building the Future.”

Launching the anniversary at a ceremony in the school recently, a member of the 1976 year group, Rev. John Sagoe, called on the various year groups to team up and help renovate the school.

He said it was important for the old students to compliment the government’s efforts to enhance effective teaching and learning for their Alma Mater, hence the need to support renovations and infrastructure in the school.

Rev. Sagoe urged all old students, former teachers and head teachers, current students and pupils, and their families as well as the general attend the programme in their numbers.

The Headmistress of the school, Mrs. Dina Animwaa Tawiah, pledged to maintain the school’s academic standards.

She noted that there would be a lot of activities such as a health walk, medical screening, fun games, and sporting activities.

“There would also be quizzes, a debate, a clean-up exercise as well as project commissioning,” Mrs Tawiah added.

During the launch, some of the schoolchildren joined the old students on a float around the surrounding areas of the school, amid singing and dancing.

Forces Primary and JHS, a school under the Garrison Cluster of schools was established in September 1972, to help educate wards of all officers, soldiers, and civilian employees of the Ghana Armed Forces.
