The First Lady Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, is urging stakeholders of the Achimota Basic School to help expand the school’s facilities.
Since its establishment in 1959, the Achimota Basic School has not seen any major development and the more than three thousand pupils have to make do with the limited facilities.
The first lady made the call when she joined past and present students of Achimota Basic School to launch their 60th Anniversary celebrations.
She used the occasion to also launch the Schools ’60 for 60 Agenda’ as well as a social media handle #APSMadeMe programme which will see the raising of funds from old students to develop the school.
The 60th anniversary launch was preceded by a walk in and around the school.
Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, who is also a former student of the Achimota Basic School was not happy that the school has not seen any major development since its establishment.
The First lady is currently undertaking the construction of a library for the school.
The launch of the ’60 for 60′ agenda is to enable old students to donate towards expanding facilities at the school and to fund the 60th anniversary celebrations.
Activities slated for the anniversary include an inter schools debate, home coming and family fun day and exhibition.
The anniversary is themed “Sixty years of holistic education, the pursuit of excellence”.
