The 1986 year group of the Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast has handed over a GH¢180,000 solar-powered water project to the school.
The project was part of a gesture to mark the group’s 30 years after leaving school.
It is aimed at weaning the school off Ghana Water Company and cut its expenditure on water utility.
The project also attracted funding support from some organizations and other old girls not part of the 1986 group.
Four mechanized boreholes were drilled to be solar powered to supply water.
Three older boreholes were re-drilled as part of the project.
Bishop of the Cape Coast Diocese of the Methodist Church Right Rev. Ebenezer Abakah Wilson, inaugurating the project, commended the group for their benevolence and contribution to the development of the school.
Aside the project, the 1986 year group organized a mentoring programme for students on career choices and how to be marketable for jobs after school, as part of activities to commemorate the school’s 180th anniversary.
The group also organized a health outreach programme at Kakumdo, a community where the school is located and screened and treated hundreds of residents.
According to Judith Adjobah, President of the 1986 year group, members were honoured to give back to the school that nurtured them and prepared them for life.
The 180th anniversary and 30 years after school was graced by a great number of old girls of the school.
