Ms Sophia Agyekum, the senior prefect of the school praised the teachers of the school for their dedication to duty but regretted that they the pupils always do not demonstrate such seriousness while in school.

She therefore promised on behalf of her colleagues to put in more efforts to perform better and said they the pupils had decided to go the homes of their colleagues who have stop coming to school because they could not get daily pocket money for school, to plead with their guardians and parents to support them to enable them return to school.
