THE 1994 year group of the Ridge Church School have pledged to donate a Smart Board to the school to aid teaching and learning.

This forms part of the 2013 project of the group to complement the teaching and learning efforts of both the teachers and the students of the school.

The President of the group, Mr Eugene Nelson-Addy, made this known at the inauguration of the group in Accra yesterday.

The ceremony, which brought together the old students and the staff of the school, was also used to raise funds to support other projects in the school.

Mr Nelson-Addy explained that the Smart Board was a digital white board which was touch sensitive and runs off local computer system resources.

He said the board was interactive and could save and store any information that was written on it and enable the user to refer to notes downloaded from the internet or other sources.

“This will help in the effective teaching and learning in the school and also make the school one of the best in Ghana and in West Africa,” he said.

However, he said, though members of the year group had intended to finance the acquisition of the board, donations from individuals, organisations and other alumni  of the school were welcome.

“No amount is too small or too little. Let us all work hard and donate as much as we can to support our alma mater,” he said.

Mr Nelson-Addy , further thanked the staff of the school for their undaunted  support  towards their education during their time in the school.

The First Vice President of the International Criminal Court of Justice, Judge Akua Kuenyehia, who was the guest of honour, lauded the efforts of the students to support the school.

She said it was important that students gave back to their various institutions in order to make life better for future generations to come.

“The school, church and the government, can do much but whether the school becomes a centre of excellence depends on you,” she said.

Justice Kuenyehia who is also the former Chairperson of the Parents Teacher Association (PTA)  of the school called on other year groups of the school to support the school.

The Headmistress of the school, Mrs Afua Dake, in her remarks, urged the group to serve as a human resource capital and mentors to the school.
