Old Volta Barracks Boys and Girls donates to alma mater
The 1970-1990s year-group of the Old Volta Barracks Boys and Girls has built a water system at a cost of GH¢30,000 to serve the washroom of the 7 Garrison Primary and Junior High School at the Volta Barracks in Ho.
The facility was handed over to the school authorities at a brief ceremony at the barracks last week.
The President of the group, Andrews A. Tagoe, said the gesture was to promote a high standard of cleanliness in the alma mater of the group.
He said the group had a membership of more than 100 in Ghana and the diaspora, ready to assist in raising the flag of the school to greater heights.

“This school has moulded us into men and women of substance, and it is only proper we also support the school now with some of its basic needs,” Mr Tagoe said.
He said the group would continue to be in constant touch with the school to identify its needs and respond accordingly.
Mr Tagoe announced plans by the group to fix ceiling fans in all 25 classrooms of the school.
“So, there are many more good tidings in the pipeline for the school,” he added.
The Garrison Education Warrant Officer, W.O. 1, Raymond Anetan, for his part, expressed appreciation for the gesture, which he described as touching and timely.
