Mrs. Theresa Mensah, headteacher of St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School has appealed to the public for immediate intervention to assist in giving the over 100 years facility a facelift to avoid any further rot.
She noted with worry that the facility handed over to the Archdiocese by the Our Lady Queen of Apostles (OLA SISTERS) has since not seen any facelift to preserve it for future us.
She said the building housing the first ever Girls primary school in the Central Region needed a major revamp and it looked as though all efforts to get stakeholders to salavge the sitruation had proven futile.
She said for instance some of the classroom blocks had deteriorated roofing which meant that in the event of rains, leaking surfaced to distract effective teaching and learning in the school.
Mrs. Mensah therefore appealed to wellmeaning indiviuals and the general public to come to their aid.
She made this known at a ceremony to hand over renovated block to the school.
The gesture was carried out by Rev Fr Stephen Amoah-Gyasi, the Cape Coast Archdiocesan Development Director whose benevolence birthed a fully renovated two units classroom block which had been abandoned for over six years.
St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School is an important part of the Faith Formation Ministry in the Cape Coast Archdiocese and has spanned in the country for over 100 years.
As the first-ever girls’ primary school in the Central Region, birthed by the OLA Sisters, it has the primary purpose of teaching wards to be followers of Jesus Christ in the Roman Catholic Tradition while employing the highest standards of Education dictates in the country.
The school was initially established as a Christian community under monastic vows for the “Our Lady of Apostles Sisters”.
The school offers grade levels Kindergarten (for three-year-olds) through to primary six and teaches a rich curriculum supported by cutting-edge character formation.
The school thrives on Academic Excellence, Life Lessons, catholic faith and Compassion and has birthed the OLA Training College.
