A student reads a poem during the Open House
Recently the Amanchia Roman Catholic Primary School held its first Open House since it was established in 1920.
Attendance was overwhelming. Chiefs, Educational Officers, parents, government representatives, political party representatives, NGOs, citizens of Amanchia and many people who had passed through the school were there to celebrate the occasion.
The event featured speeches, poetry recitals, drama and choreographed dances school children up to Grade Two. In his opening speech, the Headmaster of the School, Mr. Victor Owusu thanked Self-Help International for the support given to the school. He was particularly happy about the feeding program as it has helped to increase enrollment by 10 percent. More pre-school kids attend school since the introduction of the feeding program.
According to the staff of Self-Help International, all the children who participated in the Open House performances have one thing in common, they eat breakfast prepared from Quality Protein Maize. Protein plays a major role in the formation and development of their brain.
District Director of Education Cosmos Dzansi, also in attendance at the event, requested for deeper collaboration between Self-Help and the Ministry of Education so that more children in the district could benefit from the feeding program. He later presented a certificate of appreciation to Self-Help on behalf of the school.
Thank you for your generosity and support. Your donations have helped to improve the lives of children at Amanchia Roman Catholic Primary as well as in other Ghanaian communities.
