Discussions

Multi-Purpose Assembly Hall and Get-together / Adoption of columns fundraising

  • The meeting centered on the up-coming 25th March, fundraising program and 50th anniversary celebration.
  • Members, especially those on the mother platform dubbed international platform were encouraged to be part of the monthly contribution which is GH¢50.00 or more. This would serve as a working capital on site to avoid suspension of works whenever the accounts are empty.
  • We agreed that all sponsorship pledges should be redeemed a week to 25th March, 2017 Get-together/fundraising to enable us plan with what we have.

  • The meeting agreed that apart from year groups’ adoption of some columns, individuals can also adopt some of the columns.
  • Our target set for the Get-together/fundraising is GH¢200,000.00.
  • The meeting agreed that we should make our website attractive and use social medial to propagate our vision and in so doing it can attract sponsorship. Adamu Mohammed (London) added that they in the UK are in the process of operationalizing their website which would serve as a conduit to raise funds for MPAH and other activities for the school benefit.
  • Mr. Foli the headmaster said that management of the school has decided to sever the expansion of the dining hall from the old student’s funded projects. He said the school will use its IGF to do the expansion of the dining hall.
  • Mr. Foli briefed the meeting about the student’s population and how he is managing to cut the numbers down since the existing boarding facilities cannot accommodate them.
  • The meeting agreed with him and pleaded that we meet the PTA in their meetings to explain to them what the association intends doing to help the school and propose to them what they need to do as well to complement our efforts.
  • BMJ, BMS, Osofo Asamoah and others added their voices to how this collaboration with the PTA could help the school since other schools are doing that.

CLOSING

Meeting came to a close at 6:00pm with a closing prayer by Bishop Opare Lokko after which the school anthem was sang, “Mmerimma mmaAbusa Kese3!.
