- HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
At the invitation of Rt. Rev. James K. Owusu, Bishop of the Sunyani Diocese, three Sisters of Divine Providence from the U. S. came to Kwasibuokrom in the Brong Ahafo Region in 1988 and on 15 November, 1989, the three Sisters, Sister Marilyn Cullen, Sister Agnes Clare Kramer, and Bernadette Claire Kramer opened Our Lady of Providence Senior Secondary School for Girls. Sister Marilyn Cullen was the first Headmistress. Four students were enrolled. Classes were held in the church until January 1990, when some rooms were ready in the first school block.
As early as February 1991, the school began to operate a Hostel, renting a couple of rooms in a house from the church. As the number of boarders grew the location changed to a house on the school property. Over the years, additional dormitories, etc. were constructed. The school was granted boarding in June 1996. In 1996, the school’s first staff house was completed, a two-unit semi-detached bungalow accommodating two families.
After managing and supporting the school for eleven years the C. D. P. Sisters left for good in the year 2001. Sisters from the Society of Jesus, Mary and Joseph came in to take over the management of the school and Rev. Sr. Rosy K. I. as the Headmistress till date.
In the year 2004, on the 6th October, approval was given for the construction of girls dormitory which was financed by the Ghana Education trust fund.
In 2004 on the 2nd April, an appeal was made to the District Chief Executive of Jaman District Assembly to build an administration block for OLP secondary school for girls and it has been approved on the 16th December, 2004 but the project is yet to be completed.
