OLA SHS ‘Old Girls’ build kitchen for alma mater

The 1997 past students of Our Lady of Apostles (OLA) Catholic Senior High Girls School in Ho, as part of activities marking their 20th anniversary after completing secondary education, have built a modern kitchen to be used for the benefit of current students of their former school.

The project dubbed "Project Kitchen”, expected to be handed over to the school on February 23, is estimated at GH¢15,000 and extends to the expansion of the school's old kitchen area and renovation among others, to cater for the need of the growing student population since the school's inception.

A statement signed by the General Secretary of the group, Solace Fiadjoe indicates that, "the group embarked on an inspection of the completed project in preparedness for its handing over scheduled from 23rd to the 25th February 2018”.

According to the statement, the 1997 Year Group realised the Dining hall and the main kitchen where the project is located were in a very deplorable state and needed immediate refurbishment for general safety and also for the completed project to stand out.

“Upon deliberations, it was agreed the project scope be expanded to include renovation works of the main Kitchen. This upon evaluation was estimated at an extra GH¢9, 980.00," the Statement said.

The statement further stated that handing over ceremony doubles as a homecoming event for the year group in marking 20 years as old girls of the school. A series of educational programmes and a symposium on the girl child will be organised for current students.

"Dubbed a “Homecoming” for members since completing in 1995, the celebration is scheduled to span a three day period from Friday 23rd when the group members will arrive at the School and possibly meet with authorities through Saturday the 24th when the handing over will be done and a Symposium on the Girl Child to be facilitated by experienced research and healthcare Professionals among the group".

The group during their stay on campus will join House Mistresses for inspection, dine with students and also join kitchen staff to cook lunch. The anniversary is expected to end with a joint thanksgiving Mass with the student population on February 25.
