Chemu SHS 40th anniversary launched

The 40th anniversary celebration of the Chemu Senior High School in Tema was yesterday launched with the unveiling of the school’s anniversary logo, souvenirs and programme line-up for the event.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema Central, Yves Nii Noi Hanson-Nortey, called on parents, teachers and students to uphold the core values of the school. 

These, he said, were discipline, integrity, perseverance, sacrifice, hard work, good manners and excellence. 

Mr Hanson-Nortey, an old student of the school, said it was wrong for any school to engage in examination malpractices just to ensure their students came up as the best.

The MP said he was proud that the Chemu Senior High School was committed to being disciplined and standing for integrity hence would not subscribe to such negative actions.

“It is heartwarming that despite the fact that many of the old students come from humble backgrounds, they persevered to come up tops in every area of their lives.

 The MP advised both the teachers and students to sacrifice to bring out the best in them at all times so that the school would become the preferred choice by potential students in and outside the metropolis. 

The board chairman for the school, Dr Charles Wilson-Amoah, expressed his joy at how far the school had come and its progress in academic work.

He called on all old students from all over the world to support the school.

The headmistress, Mrs Vicentia Anin-Agyei, gave an assurance that the teachers would do their best to ensure that they produce students who would contribute to the development of the society.

She said the school had come far in both academic and infrastructure over the 40 years but their arms were also opened for any support to improve the lives of the students and academic work.
