Appointment of Mawuli School headmaster, EP church, old students sign MOU

The Old Mawuli Students Union (OMSU) and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana (EPCG) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enable the union to take part in the procedure of appointing headmasters for the school.

The Moderator of the General Assembly of the EPCG, Rt Rev Dr Lt Col Bliss Divine Kofi Agbeko (rtd) signed on behalf of the church while the President of OMSU, Richard Nyarko Buthelezi initialled for the union.

Under the MoU, the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana which founded Ho Mawuli School agreed to give priority to OMSU in the appointment process of the head of Mawuli School, in accordance with the criteria of the Ghana Education Service (GES).

OMSU will be given a seat on the panel that will interview the headmaster of the school under the MoU.

The Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana, since its establishment in 1847 has built seven second cycle schools, including Mawuli School which was the first. 

Mawuli School was established in 1950 by the then Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Gold Coast under the instrumental leadership of the missionary educationist, Rev. Christian Kwami Baeta, the then Synod Clerk of E.P. Church of Gold Coast, now Ghana. 

The first Headmaster was Rev. Walter Trost from the Presbyterian Church of USA (United Church of Christ).

The EPCG has contributed exceptionally to the management and maintenance of Mawuli School to achieve high moral and academic standards, self-discipline and high marketability of graduates of the school to complement government efforts in providing quality and holistic education. 

Since 1954, OMSU has contributed significantly to the development of the school.

Speaking to Graphic Online's Alberto Mario Noretti after the signing of the MoU, Mr Buthelezi said OMSU was concerned about a headmaster who was dedicated to the cause of Mawuli School.

He said Mawuli School had built a sterling image for itself over the decades and OMSU would always maintain an uncompromising stance to preserve that image and raise it to greater heights.

For his part, Rt Rev Agbeko entreated OMSU to ensure that more qualified candidates were shortlisted for the interview for the post of a headmaster for the school.

He said although candidates who were products of Mawuli School would be preferred, the church was also concerned of the qualifications and ability of the applicants.
