The secretary of Kwahu Ridge School Old Students’ Association (KROSA) Mr. Kwabena Osei kwakye has indicated, there are lots of things that the Association has done for the school since it was established. He said, the association has been in existence since the 1980s but was malfunctioning until KROSA was formed in 2005. He was speaking at a ceremony organized by the association where four projects were commissioned.
According to Mr. Kwakye the association has funded painting of the boys dormitory, donated cash, football, ceiling fans for the dining hall block ,educational materials on several occasions and rehabilitated the classroom block of Twenedurase campus, fixing white marker boards in 12 main classrooms, instituted best students awards for all subjects and courses previously for primary level; now extending the awards to the Senior High Level.
Mr. Osei said because of consistent power outages (dumsor), they have fixed solar lights in 12 classrooms, rehabilitated the home economics laboratory and donated items worth GH 9000 including sewing machines, freezer, fridge, 2 polytanks (15000L or 3,333 gallons capacity each) with 18 taps. He said they even donated 600 pieces of marker pens few days ago.
According to Mr. Kwabena Osei kwakye, there are lots of challenges the school is facing right now and they are pleading with the government to come to their aid. He said, the Association is appealing to the chiefs of Obo, Obomeng, Twenedurase and surrounding communities to come and support them since the school has helped the communities a lot.
He said, one of their challenges as an Association was that, there are some projects going on which the association is oblivious of and school authorities are sometimes also not aware.
Headmistress of the school, Mad. Joyce Esi Adom also said, she is grateful and appreciates all the good works that the Association has done for the school. She said her problem is the girl’s dormitory that was awarded for contract in 2005 but has hitherto not been completed.
Mad. Joyce Adom said, another challenge of the school is lack of classrooms. She said sometimes they have to turn the dining hall into classrooms and mount canopies outside as classrooms for students. She continued by saying erosion is also destroying road networks on the school compound and appealed to the government and individuals to support them before the erosion swallows them.
