The alumni of Kumasi Academy base in USA has presented a refurbished toilet facility to the house.
The facility includes a 12-toilet cubicle facility which also houses a fitted wash hand basins.
The presentation is the first of a 2-phase project aimed at building science lab for the school (Akunini).
Member of the association Mr Kwame Boafo who represented the alumni, U.K Branch during the handing over ceremony in his presentation said the facility will add to the quality of life of the students at the school.
He said the group decided to undertake the project because education is a mutual responsibility, “one where we all come together for the sake of our children.”
“We all have a role to play, however small, in the education not only of our own children but all children – all of them. It is the right thing to do,” he added.
He thanked everyone who contributed to making the project a success especially his colleagues at USA and called on more people to contribute towards other projects that they have planned.
He was hopeful that the project will go a long way to improving sanitation and educational lives of the students.
Mr Boafo indicated that, the association is ready to fixed anything that will be destroyed but the school authorities should inform them earlier to prevent the collapsed of the facility.
He also announced the regular visits to the school by the old students of Akunini as a mentor programme for the students. This according to him will bring professionals to the school to help guide and shape the future of the students. Handing over the facility to the school, the headmaster, Mr Samuel Gato commended the association for the kind gesture and promise to take good care of the project. He then called on philanthropists and the government to come to the aid of the school with classroom furniture.
He said although they have written to the free SHS secretariat and the Ghana Education Service, they are yet to come to the rescue of the school.
He also wants the government to fix the internal road networks of the school which are in a bad state.
Mr Gato enumerated these challenges among others confronting the school at the commissioning and handing over of a 12-seater ultra-modern toilet facility built for the school by the USA based old students of the school.
