Some former students of Christian Methodist Senior High School have been urged to complement efforts towards improving the institution.
The call was made during a fundraising and reunion dinner meeting held at East Legon in Accra.
The function which was attended by more than 100 former students raised ¢10,000 in pledges and cash to support the completion of the School’s girls’ dormitory.
The Chairman for the event, Anyemi Samuel Korboe, challenged the old students to support the school to get back on its feet.
“We all have a stake in the future of our former school. We are obliged to achieve and maintain for our students and staff high academic and discipline standards to produce God-fearing people who are patriotic and developmental and together we can,” he said.
He challenged the old students to consider contributing ¢3,500 per year group by the end of 2023 to support other infrastructure in the school.
“If we get 10-year groups contributing ¢3,500 each, by the end of this year we will have 35,000 to support other developmental projects Let’s heed this call and lift the image of the school,” he pleaded.
The President of CHRIMOSA, Rev. Justice Ekuban, in acknowledging the contribution of old students in supporting the school over the years called on the alumni to continue to lend a hand in uplifting the name of the school.
He also called on corporate bodies and individuals to come on board to support the School.
The Assistance Headmaster of the school, Raymond Sedzro, commended the old students for their continuous support. He was particularly grateful that the alumni have provided the school with a National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) room stocked with up-to-date materials to support science students in their preparation toward the prestigious quiz.
Recently also, we were blessed with a state-of-the-art computer lab from the old students with support from Ecobank,” he stated.
Rev. Daniel Gyasi-Ankra of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach, in a remark, gave a brief history of how the school was established and the faces it has gone through to reach its current status.
The school was established in September 1960 by the Late Rev. Gordon Nii Akwei Quaye of blessed memory with funding from the United States-based Christian Methodist Episcopal Church. The school was initially located, in rented premises, at Asylum Down, near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle. Originally a private institution, it was absorbed into the public educational system in September 1965. The school moved to the present site, in Weija, in September 2009.
Christian Methodist, since its inception, has churned out great individuals who have and continue to contribute their quota to the development of Ghana.
