Kumasi Aca old students in USA unveil ultra-modern toilet facility

US-based alumni of Kumasi Academy have constructed an ultra-modern toilet facility for the school at Asokore Mampong in Kumasi.

Speaking on behalf of the president, Mr. Kwame Boafo, the Communications Director of the Association in his speech said the reason behind “the new toilet facility is part of the old students’ commitment towards efforts to addressing the sanitation issues at the school”.

“I am hopeful that this project will go a long way to improve sanitation and add value to your educational lives in this reputable school.

“Education is a mutual responsibility and government alone can’t carry it, so we’ll do our possible best to help the school achieve its glories.

“We all have a role to play and presenting this project to the school is the right thing to do so I am urging all the old students in this school to come together to improve the standard of teaching and learning in this school,” he said.

The facility includes twelve toilet cubicles, three wall-mount flush-valve urinals and six hand wash sink with cabinet.

The project was made possible by significant sacrifices, support and contributions of Kumasi Academy Old Students in the USA (KUMACA USA).

The President thanked the entire old students in the USA who contributed towards the facility and making it possible and the executive members.

A special mention was made of Dr. Kwame Edusei Bawuah, an old student and Ghana’s former ambassador to the USA, who became the highest contributor.

Other members were called upon to contribute towards other planned projects.

The headmaster, Mr. Samuel Gato, commended the association for the kind gesture and promised to take good care of the project.

He then called on philanthropists and the government to come to the aid of the school with classroom furniture and also to tar their internal roads.

“We are pleading on the government to assist the school with furniture. Although we have written to the Free SHS secretariat and the Ghana Education Service, they are yet to come to the rescue of the school.

“Our internal roads are really in a bad state and we are again calling on the government to fix our roads for us,” he appealed.

Mr. Samuel Gato enumerated these challenges confronting the school at the commissioning and handing over of the 12-seater ultra-modern toilet facility built by the USA-based old students.
