Celebrating St. Marcellin Champagnat School in Kumasi

27/07/2013: Ghana

The Staff, Students and Parents of St. Marcellin Champagnat School in Kumasi, Ghana on Friday, 14th June, 2013 gathered to celebrate the Founders’ day. The day was also the graduation ceremony of the 2013 final year students. The four-day celebration was marked by a talk show, quiz competition, sports and a durbar. Talking on the topic ‘Be a Champagnat today’, Br Paul Adu, the Bursar of the school, urged students to imitate the good attitudes of the founder such as hardworking, perseverance, love, humility and good fearing.

In his welcome address to the climax of the occasion, Br. Augustine Teye Naatey, the Headmaster of the school encouraged the students to prove themselves true sons and daughters of Fr. Champagnat by their way of life. He expressed a great appreciation to the staff for their unparalleled contributions to the success of the school. According to the headmaster no earthly goods can adequately reward teachers for leading the students to God and to a successful living. “Your full reward can only be found in God’’ he added.

Br. John Kusi Mensah on behalf of the District Superior reminded the gathering that Marist Education is education for life and called for co-operation of all enable the St. Marcellin achieve his dreams.

The P.T.A donated an 18.5 KVA Plant (generator) to the school. This was in response to frequent power cuts in the country that have challenged the school in recent times. The day was an occasion to reward hardworking students/pupils as well as staff.
