Old Students donate to Alma Mater

Members of the 1995 Year Group of the Sekondi Methodist Senior High School (MESEC), have presented a generator set and two stabilizers to their alma mater.

The gesture formed part of measures to promote effective teaching and learning in the school, especially in times of power outages.

Making the presentation at an impressive ceremony in Sekondi, the leader to the group, Mr. Philip Korsah, appealed to all year groups to come on board and fraternize, to chat the way forward for the development of the school.

He admitted that the school had made an impact on them, and it was time to give back to their alma mater.

Mr Korsah advised the students to strive hard to uplift the image of the school in spite of the challenges confronting them.

He said the numerical strength of the group currently stands at 11, and used the occasion to appeal to their class mates to join and make the Association more vibrant.

Receiving the items on behalf of the school, the Acting Headmaster, Mr.Kenneth Dzigbede, said at a time MESEC was crying for facilities, it was proper for the Old Students Association to come to its aid.

Mr Dzigbede said the donation should encourage the students to be serious with their academic work, in order to contribute meaningfully to the growth of society.

Mr. Dzigbede who doubles as the Takoradi Metro Director of Education, congratulated the old boys and girls for contributing their widow's mite towards the development of the school.

The Western Regional Director of Education, Mr. David Affram, whose speech was read for him, observed that the support of old students in the Region was nothing to write home about.

He said government required support from all stakeholders in the delivery of quality education.

Mr. Affram pointed out that the aim of education was not only to provide academic giants, but to produce students with sound moral principles.

He advised the student body and school authorities to put the facilities to good use.
