Presenting the items to the school, Stephen Owusu, who represented Chief Patron of the association, Johnny Gyamfi, said the donation was made to show appreciation to the school, through which they have been successful in life.
“The association expresses their gratitude to this school for given them the right moral education in shaping the lives of the members to reach greater heights in the society. We hope these books, especially, the reading books, will help develop children’s reading skills. The association will continue to assist the school in our capacity, and we hope other old students will emulate and do same,” he said.
