Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, in her address, congratulated the students and stated that she was glad the school did not record any absentees during the examination period. She asked the candidates to catch up on rest for the next few days and utilise their free time properly by learning languages, computer coding programmes, handicraft or any other beneficial skills before it is time to be admitted into the Senior High Schools.

Prof. Amfo said “this school has been known for the success that it has chalked and I’m always proud of the products of this school because wherever you find them, they are able to compete very well with students from all over; not just within the country, because of the grounded training you get here”.

Prof. Amfo concluded by accepting the proposal to institute the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards in the near future.
