The Headmaster of the school, Mr Thomas Kyei Bredu, accepted the items and highlighted the need for past students of senior high schools across the country, not just St John’s Grammar, to help their alma maters. He thanked the old students (JOSA) and promised that the school would use the items to the betterment of the entire student population.
Mr Kyei Bredu further addressed some concerns of the school such as, a need for expansion or building of new classrooms to accommodate the rising number of students that currently stands at 5,400 being the highest in Greater Accra.
