Crown Prince Academy Holds Graduation Ceremony

schoolThe Crown Prince Academy Limited, an Early Childhood Development Centre, Primary and Junior High School in Accra, has held its 11th graduation ceremony with a call to the graduates to be part of the solution to the numerous challenges confronting the nation.

They are also encoveraged to be vessels of hope for a great transformation of the country.

The ceremony at which 88 pupils graduated was on the theme ‘Excellence is a way of life’.

Master Denzel Aryee, a graduate, in a welcoming address, and his colleague would live up to expectation as they continued their academic journey into the world.

He expressed gratitude to their parents and school authorities for the investment and the values, knowledge and principles inculcated in them.

The Managing Director of the school, Mrs. Sussane Prince-Boateng, asked the graduates to make a great impact as thinkers and innovators and as leaders as the school’s slogan states to positively affect the fortunes of our country.

She said: If we compare Ghana’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to Malaysia and South Korea over the past 40 years, we cannot be happy as a people.

The Headmaster of the school, Joseph Appiah Addo, said over the last three years, the school had been reshaping, rethinking and refocusing the quality of its entire system of education.

He said a large number of the 859 students who had so far graduated from the school were making waves in various secondary and tertiary institutions.

Management, he said, was taking a look at the school’s slogan of ‘Sending leaders to the world’ with the view of qualifying the word “leaders”.

“Our concern has emanated from how leadership in Africa, particularly West Africa and to a large extent Ghana, has been so demonized, and attributed with all the wrong reasons which has made the word leader appear vague.

In his closing remarks, Mr. Joseph Nana Osei Owusu, Financial Controller of Vivo Energy Ghana Limited and chairman for the school’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA), reminded the graduates that the school and the PTA were behind them and they could call for any form of moral assistance at any time.

He advised them to be good citizens as they took up new challenges.

There was a special presentation, Madam Felecia Yaa Asantewa, of GH¢210,750 and a citation to the longest serving staff of the school, Madam Felicia Yaa Asantewa.
