POGA’ 1983 supports alma mater
MEMBERS of the 1983-year group of the Past OLA Girls Association (POGA) have donated 2,000 sanitary pads, deodorants, bales of mosquito nets, notebooks, branded pens and 200 desks to their alma mater.
This coincided with the group’s 40th anniversary celebration on the theme: Raising Visible, Confident Women for National Development.
The items, worth about GH GH₵ 200,000, were presented by the President of POGA 1983, Peace Apeadu to the headmistress, Benedicta Agbezudor, on the campus last weekend.
The POGA, 1983 President said the group was committed to supporting OLA Ho to maintain its sterling image at all times and helping to raise the flag of the school to greater heights.
“We are only giving back a little of what OLA Ho gave us,” she added.
Madam Apeadu said the group would constantly be in touch with the school authorities to identify its pressing needs and respond accordingly.
For her part, Mrs Agbezudor expressed gratitude for the donation and appealed to other POGA year groups for similar support.
The headmistress said the school now had an enrollment of almost 3, 000 and needed more infrastructure to contain the large and expanding students’ population.
About 250 students took part in a health screening exercise organised on the campus by the past OLA girls as part of the celebration.
The 40th anniversary souvenir magazine of the year group, Past OLA Girls Class of 83 was also launched.
