St Augustine’s old boys donate beds to school
The 1988/90 Year Group of St Augustine’s College in Cape Coast (APSU '88) has donated 76 beds to their Alma Mater.
The gesture is part of the year group’s commitment to give back to their alma mater after their attention was drawn to a very appalling condition at some dormitories of selected houses.
A fund was immediately raised to procure the beds to donate as a major support to the school with the primary objective of improving students’ comfort and well-being as well as creating a lasting impact on campus life.
The donation of the bunk beds is to enhance on-campus living conditions and also to augment the limited dormitory amenities and to help bring better comfort as well as to enhance on-campus living conditions of the current students.\
The donation, according to the group, would encourage and facilitate social interactions, leading to stronger connections among students and promoting an inclusive campus atmosphere.
It would also allow the students to have access to improved living arrangements, fostering an environment conducive to their academic success and personal growth.
The presentation of the beds was also part of activities to mark the 2nd Homecoming of the Group since they left the school forty years ago.
The Homecoming, which took place from October 26 to 29 brought together alumni from the APSU Class of '88/90 to celebrate their shared experiences and accomplishments since graduation.
The old students organised career guidance for the students, a health walk, and made presentations on prostate cancer, and held a thanksgiving mass including other fun activities
