The 1986-1988 group of former students of Opoku Ware School in Kumasi has spent Gh¢62,000 to put the Physics Laboratory of its alma mater in shape.

The work carried out involved the renovation and restocking of the facility with modern equipment and learning materials.

Members of the group who wrote their GCE A’ Level examination in 1988 undertook the project to mark the 30thanniversary of their O’ Level sitting two years earlier in 1986.

At a recent handing over ceremony, the 1986/1988 batch of ‘Akatayie’, as students of the school are known, pledged more support for the institution which has made them who they are today.

President of the group, Professor Mark-Adom-Asamoah, was confident the refurbished laboratory will boost the school’s academic performance.

He mentioned particularly OWASS’ bid to re-establish itself as a force in the National Science and Mathematics Quiz. They are hoping at recapturing top spot in the prestigious competition.

Headmaster, Dr. Alexis Frimpong-Nimo, was full of gratitude for the former students for the gesture.
