On Saturday evening, NEC hosted the school’s NSMQ team to dinner at the Han Court Chinese Restaurant at Danyame.
In attendance were the headmaster, Rev. Fr. Stephen Owusu-Sekyere and his three assistants; Academic, Administration and Domestic as well as the President and Secretary of the Jofel Group, and Kat. Paul Cudjoe (AH86), a tutor at Prempeh College and one of the coordinators of that school’s team that won the 2015 and 2017 titles.
The headmaster and the coordinators expressed their gratitude to NEC and the association in general for the thunderous support the team enjoyed, and pledged that they would work even harder to bring the trophy to OWASS next year. Some of the students and the coordinators shared their perspectives and experiences on a wide range of issues regarding the competition, and it was a very friendly and relaxed discussion.
President Kat. J.B Danquah (AL53) presented a cheque of GHS8,100 to the team through the headmaster, being money donated by Akatakyie to support the team, and indicated to him that Movie House Ltd, owned by Vice President David Amoo-Osae (AM108) would make a similar presentation to the team very soon, following a pledge made whilst the competition was in progress. The headmaster expressed his deep appreciation for the support on behalf of the team and the school.
The school has agreed, following our request, to put together its strategy and plan for winning the trophy and share it with the fraternity, so that we can all join hands to push the school’s determination to bring home the cup.
Once again, we congratulate and appreciate the team for how far they were able to travel in the competition, and the fraternity for the incredible support given the boys in diverse ways, through cash, visits and various treats/gifts.
The ultimate victory has eluded us for 18 long years, but we cannot, and must not, give up our dream of clinching this most prestigious of trophies in the SHS landscape.
Especially with our 70th anniversary around the corner, we have every reason to give this campaign our all and end our drought.
