Hall of Fame: These 19 popular figures are old girls of Mfantsiman

Mfantsiman Girls also known as Syte is Ghana’s largest female public senior high school.

Established in 1960 by Ghana’s first President Dr Kwame Nkrumah it was formerly known as Saltpond Girls’ Secondary School. The name was changed to Mfantsiman when the District of Saltpond became the District of Mfantsiman District.

According to school history, 70 girls were selected from the Common Entrance Examination to begin the first batch of students with Mrs Beatrice CHINERY as headmistress.

The school’s motto is “Obra Nye Woarbo” which means “Life is what you Make it” with mauve and white as official colours. The school crest features an eagle, straw basket, claw of an eagle and woman seated on on elephant.

The anthem of the school was a Latin song which is still used by KNUST as its anthem. Girls are housed in 6 student’s building namely Butler, Crofie, Chinery, Engman Scotton and Yeboah Houses respectively.

Mfantsiman Girls have a healthy alliance with the boys of Adisadel College known as SANTAMOGA.

Mansyte was the second female school to make an appearance at the finals of the prestigious National Science and Maths Quiz in 2016 after Wesley Girls in 1999.

With over 50,000 members, the old student association of the school is one of the largest in Ghana and has a number of local and international chapters. Their prime aim is to give back to the school for the role it played in their lives.

Ghana is blessed to have these 19 women contributing to national growth as old girls of Mfantsiman.
