The items comprised 30 boxes of marker pens, 12 pieces per box for the teachers and a quantity of supplementary reading books to stock the school’s library.
Speaking at a short but impressive ceremony, which also highlighted the role of old students to promote academic excellence in the school, Mr. Gordon Asubonteng, the Dormaa Central Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) reminded the old students of their responsibilities as ambassadors of the school.
“You are role models and mentors of the institution’s current crop of students”, he said and commended them for their zeal and unity of purpose to contribute towards the infrastructure development and academic progress of the school.
Concerning the school’s physical infrastructure challenges, he said the Municipal Assembly had assessed the situation and would be providing the necessary financial and material support to renovate and refurbish old dormitory blocks to give the school a facelift.
Mr. Roger Kumi-Mensah, a Sunyani-based businessman, an alumnus said, the year group had the primary objective to mobilize resources to augment the efforts of government and other stakeholders to improve the school's level of infrastructure development.
Mr. Kumi-Mensah said the year group now numbering about 100 would in the short-term, raise funds to construct a canteen for the day students as a landmark for other year groups to emulate.
Mr. Isaac Nsiah Edwards, the Dormaa Central Municipal Director of Education said the Alumni group could only be vibrant to achieve its objectives if members demonstrated loyalty towards its cause and maintain effective communication among themselves.
Ms. Margaret Pomaah Otchere, Headmistress of the school announced that the school would celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2017, saying that it would be launched in Sunyani this year to bring all stakeholders on board for a grand celebration.
