The Nsaba Presbyterian Senior High School in the Central Region, has launched its 50th anniversary celebrations in Accra with a call on old students to support the school to achieve greater laurels.

The call was made by the President of the African University College of Communications (AUCC), Mr Kojo Yankah, who is a former member of parliament for the area. The year-long anniversary is on the theme ‘Quality Education: The role of stakeholders’.

According to him, old students were the live wire to the survival of their alma mater as their actions and inactions contributed a lot to the development of the school.

Mr Yankah, who pledged to donate ten computers and its accessories to the school, was unhappy with the number of old students who showed up for the launch and said such attitudes went a long way to affect the development of the school.

He called on the old student association (NAPOSA) to try and step-up efforts at ensuring that more of its members got involved in its activities to promote the good of the school.

According to him, for quality education to be successful, there was the need for quality learners who were well-prepared health wise, psychologically and physically.

Also, he said, there was the need for governmental and private sector support, the contribution of old students among other bodies who had the interest of the school at heart.

The Headmaster of the school, Mr David Aning-Yobo, said the school which was changed into a secondary school in 1972 from a training college had gone through a number of challenges which continued to call for attention from all stakeholders.

The Headmaster said although it had achieved a lot of laurels along the way, more could be done with the assistance of the old students and other philanthropists.

Students from the school treated guests to a cultural display and the school choir also dished out renditions of songs to the admiration of all.

The old students and guests made pledges to the tune of about GHc 20,000 (200m old cedis) towards the anniversary celebration which is in November next year.
