All is set for the 60th anniversary launch of the Tarkwa Senior High School (TARSCO) slated for tomorrow, August 31, 2022 at the Marriott Hotel in Accra.

The event, which will bring together all year groups of the Tarkwa SHS Past Students Association (TARPSA) in Ghana and other parts of the world, is being organised by TARPSA, in conjunction with the board of directors of the school.

The theme for the celebration is, “Achieving academic excellence through discipline for national development.”

The launch, to be chaired by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Tobinco Group of Companies, Nana Samuel Amo Tobin, with the Omanhene of Wassa Akropong, Nana Tetrete Okuamoah Sekyi, as the Special Guest of Honour, will have past students of TARSCO, including the Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako-Atta; the Deputy Minister of Education, Gifty Twum Ampofo, among others in attendance.

Resource mobilisation

In an interview with the Chairperson of TARPSA, Hannah Owusu-Koranteng, she said the launch was aimed at mobilising resources for the main celebration of the 60th anniversary which would take place in November 2022.

She indicated that past students of TARSCO had dedicated themselves to undertaking a “magnificent project” for their alma mater to mark the school’s anniversary.

“This is part of the efforts of the past students to show appreciation for the opportunity that TARSCO granted them to have holistic education which propelled the students who passed through the school to achieve excellence in their various careers,” she noted.


In that regard, Mrs Owusu-Koranteng made a passionate appeal to all past students of TARSCO to participate actively in all the programmes lined up for the celebration of the 60th anniversary.

Some ministers of state and dignitaries who had been invited to the launch of the programme, she revealed, were the Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Mireku Duker, regional ministers of Western North and Western regions and all parliamentarians in the Western and Western North regions, as well as political party chairpersons of the NPP and NDC in the two regions.
