The 1981 year group of the Odorgonno Senior High School in Accra yesterday donated 40 adjustable chairs and tables to their alma-mater.
It also presented a laptop to facilitate the administrative work of the school.
John Gerald Essel, spokesperson of the group, presenting the items said after over 40 years of leaving school, the onus now lay on them to support the current administration adopt measures to promote teaching and learning.
He said even though, most members were on pension, they saw the need to assist their alma-mater to meet the current demand of the country’s educational system that leverage the Free Senior High School policy.
Mr Essel who was accompanied by other executives of the year group said they would also adopt the King Tackie Tawiah House (House One), to constantly improve the facilities towards creating congenial atmosphere for teaching and learning.
He said the group would at its annual general meeting adopt measures to individually and collectively contribute to improve the infrastructure needs of the school.
The headmaster, Patrick Mensah, commended the year group for its efforts and assured that the items would be put to good use for the benefit of the school.
According to him, the school with its current population of over 3,200 needed the contribution of all past students to put it at the level of first class schools.
“We have all the facilities, the space and the infrastructure, what is left is the other needs that would enable the school to compete with other Grade ‘A’ schools.
He appealed to philanthropists, spirited individuals and the past students to support the school realise its goal of producing first class students capable of transforming their communities.
