“We do with enthusiasm. We offer scholarships to all manner of students who do well in any discipline academic, sports, whatever, if you excel, you have scholarship. When a student has the minimum pass to enter and prove yourself to be a capable sports person, you will have scholarship grant”.
His comments were reiterated by the school’s Local Manager Rev. Father Sylvester Frimpong who stated the school stands for “quality” and “service to humanity”.
