Old students of St. Paul Technical School (SPATS) in the Eastern region have pledged their support to their alma mater to solve the numerous challenges confronting the school and also promote the quality of education.
This came to light when executives and some of the old students paid a visit to ascertain issues confronting the school and to also cut sod for the construction of a new entrance view as part of the school’s 60th anniversary celebrations at Kukurantumi in the East Akim municipality.
Chairman of the planning committee and an old student, Desmond Daniel Darkey in an interview with Bryt FM said his outfit is doing its possible best to ensure the school redeems its image.
He revealed the school over the past years has produced lots of prominent personalities working with various sectors of the economy and therefore emphasised on the need to support in ensuring current students have the necessary facilities in order to ensure they also emulate the success of old students.
Mr. Darkey, however, appealed to all old students, government, NGOs, corporate bodies and other stakeholders to come on board to address the plight of the institution.
Some challenges encountered included replacing of Louvre blades, door locks and wire nets, leakage of roofs of the main school block, electrical faults, and lack of fence wall among many others.
Meanwhile, the group has assured most of the challenges would be dealt with before the climax of their 60th anniversary.
