Froebel Educational Centre, one of the leading private schools in Kumasi is set to hold its first old students’ homecoming ceremony since the inception of the school thirty years ago.
The school with state-of-the-art facilities was founded by a retired late educationist, Madam Daisy Vivian Buiterze, in 1993.
Mr. David Owusu, Administrator of the school, said this is the first homecoming, and it is expected to rekindle the old students and invite people from all walks of life.
He also announced a full pack of activities including debate and games, among others, for students in the enviable institution.
The ceremony, as scheduled, coincides with the 30th Anniversary of the school, Mr. David Owusu told journalists in Kumasi.
He said the anniversary will be used to identify challenges facing students and find solutions through fundraising to ameliorate teaching and learning.
Earlier, the management of the school on behalf of the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates of Froebel settled the hospital bills of some patients.
Five dustbins were also presented to the Mater Dei Hospital, at Patase to curb wastage ahead of the 30th Anniversary of the educational institution.
The staff of the school and the candidates earlier also donated food items to Cherubs Children’s Home, at Aperi near Kumasi in the Atwima Kwanwoma District.
Mr. Owusu said:, ‘Froebel established thirty years ago the journey has not been so easy. As we are about to climax it, it is wise for us to celebrate it with the less privileged in society, we again thought it wise to share the little we have with our brothers and sisters who through no fault have found themselves here.
‘At Froebel Educational Centre, we are doing our best to ensure students become ‘somebody’ and we urge parents to also prioritize their kid’s education for future purposes’, Mr. David Owusu pointed out to journalists.
Mr. David Owusu also touched on the need for parents and guardians to invest much in children’s education which according to him, is the only source of capital to be bequeath to the kids.
The administrator of Cherubs Children’s Home, Mr. Bernard Osei Bonsu, who happens to be a pioneer of Froebel received the items worth millions of cedis and the amount of cash from Mr. David Owusu.
Mr. Osei Bonsu presented an appreciation letter after the kind gesture from the BECE candidates to Froebel management.
Head of Social Services at Cherubs, Pastor Bismark Osei Bonsu prayed for God’s blessings for the candidates and anyone who supported the donation in one way or another.
