It is heartwarming, therefore, to say that though the journey is an onerous one, the old students in their response are very much committed to the ideals of projecting their alma mater to greater heights in the years ahead.
The effort of the PTA is highly commendable. Once the school is community based, parents are taking upon themselves to ensure that teaching and learning go no smoothly. They have since the beginning of the school provided a good number of dual desks each academic year; the parents instituted a mid-day meal to sustain learning in the afternoon. This went on successfully till the school was granted a boarding status in 2006/07 academic year.
The PTA in collaboration with the headmaster gives financial support to volunteer teachers and teachers whose salaries are under process.
The traditional Authority gave the land.
LAWRA DISTRICT ASSEMBLY
The Lawra District Assembly is one of the key players towards the opening and continuous development of the school. Among other things, it is worth mentioning that, so far it has provided the Semi-detached bungalows for six teachers including the headmaster and sixty bunk beds for the students.
It is worthy to mention names of individuals, groups and NGOs who in diverse ways have contributed meaningfully to lift up the image of the school.
Hon Ben Kumbour, one time Member of Parliament for Lawra Nandom Constituency, now Minister for Health, donated four computers and its accessories to the school. Hob Ambrose Dery, Member of Parliament – Lawra/Nandom Constituency was a brain behind the construction of a one – storey dormitory block for boys through the GETFUND. He provided tow metres to the boys’ dormitory and the library and drew light to the two facilities.
Dr. Felix and Co-illustrious sons of the community who are elsewhere have been providing the school with lots of reading materials in the library. Recently, they donated about eight computers and accessories to the school.
Mr. Marshall Belieb provided street lights in the school to enable students move freely to their classrooms during preps in the night. Vodafone – (NGO) donated six computers and accessories to the school.
