Old students of St. Thomas Aquinas Senior High School (Old Toms) are set to mark their biennial homecoming celebrations at the school premises on November 22.
This year’s homecoming anniversary christened ‘‘Made in Aquinas”, would witness the convergence of the various year groups of ‘Old Toms’ to engage in a series of sporting, musical and educational activities.
Preceeding the main occasion, organisers have put together road shows in the various universities to fraternise with Old Toms followed by a Remembrance Day celebration on November 16 and a successful climax of the programme with a thanksgiving service.
Bishop Gabriel Edoe Kumordji, Bishop of the Keta-Akatsi Diocese of the Catholic Church and an Old Tom of the 1976 year group who delivered the keynote address at the press launch on the topic “Reviving the spirit of veritas liberat and discipline” admonished all Old Toms and Ghanaians to be truthful and disciplined in all endeavours.
He said ‘Veritas liberat’ which connotes truthfulness was a motto that must serve as a guiding principle not only to the Aquinas community but to all Ghanaians.
Bishop Kumordji called for the value of truth to be cardinal in all our affairs adding that the corruption of truth affects the moral of society.
He also encouraged current students and stakeholders of the school to adopt the principle of discipline if the desired results and change they clamoured for was to be achieved.
Mr Paul Amoasi Baidoo, Headmaster of St. Thomas Aquinas, hailed the alumni of the school for their continuous support and contribution to their alma mater assuring that the school would provide the needed support towards making the homecoming a success.
