A Creative and Performing Art Club at the Biriwa Methodist B Basic School has been duly inaugurated by the Boys and Girls Club of Ghana under the K Sam Essilfie Medical Foundation led by Mr. Stephen Quansah.

Mr. Quansah, who is also the Director General of the Club made a cash donation of GHC 1,000 to the club as a start up cash to purchase needed materials to facilitate the operations of the clubs activities.

Inaugurating the club, he admonished leaders to stick to the goal of the club , mentor and ensure that each member benefits greatly.

He said it could be an avenue of learning a highly demanded alternative livelihood skill which would be a surplus income for younger ones.

The Director told learners to be very available and accessible to the craft and be open minded about every activity adding “ you’re a step away to achieving your aims , be attentive and stay focused.

Mr. Quansah advised young girls to endeavor to stay chaste in other to stay focused as they climb their educational ladder.

“Don’t give yourself a divided attention, stay clued to your goals, don’t sway , there is victory at the end of if the tunnel, you only need to be objective and determined to succeed” he added.

Mr. Samuel Hayford, the headteacher of the school, thanked the leadership of Boys & Girls Club of Ghana and K. Sam Essilfie Medical Foundation and their partners for the donation and promised to ensure that the money was put to good use.

Just as Oliver twist, he indicated that they would be grateful if such generous donations were done routinely as the clubs major challenge circled around finances.

Another challenge , he indicated was the incomplete Art gallery structure which had remained uncompleted for a while adding” it is our vision to complete the structure to help commute all materials and hand made products there for safety”.

Leading the team, the headteacher showed a number of creative products club members had made, notable among them were hand weaved school bags, doormats, table clothes, necklaces and bracelets made of crystals and beads and a host of others.
