ART BlOCK RENOVATION UNDERWAY
September 14th 1973 was a Friday; a fast moving day. US President Richard Nixon signed a law lifting pro football’s blackout; Israel shot down 13 Syrian MIG-21s and on mile nine on the Accra ¨CAburi Road in Ghana, nervous group of freshmen arrived at Presec on a humid afternoon to begin their secondary education.
Forty year after leaving Presec in 1978, this group of good humored, jolly and friendly seniors the likes of Obengash, Tulashi, Eddie Tobgor, Charles Nkrumah, Frank Adu, Maama Markwei, Dampare, Abbot, Asase, Samalele, Raskoshe and Ayobele some of whom have passed on, are celebrating their anniversary and what better way to do this than to give a renovated Art Block to the school that shaped their lives for good.
Estimated at Ghc 200,000 and designed by one of their own, master architect Odadee Badger of Riis House, the renovation works will see the addition of washrooms, store and refurbishment/repainting of Art Block including the additional block constructed by this group in 2003 during their 25th anniversary. When completed in August 2018, it will transform the visual arts department into a commercial hub with the capacity to undertake creative art works which will inure to the benefit of the school. Extensive Landscaping will be part of the works as well as fencing of the area to ensure security. This project one of the flagship projects of the 80th anniversary of the Presec, will be commissioned by His Excellency President Nana Akuffo Addo on September 15th 2018. Special mention must be made of Seniors Teye Kodjoe, Kweku Hinson and Simon Adotey for their untiring efforts towards this project.
Seniors, Presec is appreciative and grateful. We salute.
