Year Group of the Old Achimotan Association (OAA ‘92) has donated 400 pieces of furniture to the Achimota School for use in the school’s examination halls.

The furniture (200 tables and 200 chairs) were purchased with money donated by members of the Year Group at a special fundraising event held in London. The group had previously refurbished the school’s physics laboratory.

The presentation ceremony took place in front of the school’s administration block on Monday, May 23, 2022.

Presentation

Presenting the furniture, the President of OAA ‘92, Eunice Amewu Nyadu, pledged the members’ continuous support for their alma mater, saying the donation was, among other things, meant to encourage the students to study harder.

The Assistant Headmistress in charge of Domestic Affairs of the school, Lydia Mamle Bantey, who received the furniture, expressed the school’s appreciation for what she described as a timely and kind gesture, pointing out that the furniture had come just in time for the school’s examinations.

Gratitude

She conveyed her personal gratitude to the 1992 Year Group and requested for further assistance from the members.

Mrs Nyadu was accompanied by a former president, Kofi Asmah; the Secretary, Mrs Jennifer Gertrude Laryea and the Organising Secretary, Celine Owusu-Afari.

Also present were some members of staff of Achimota School, including the Director of Studies, Anthony Adjetey; the Deputy Director of Studies, Eric Asante and the Head of Maintenance, Daniel McCarthy.
