Achimota School goes paperless… as Akora ’93 hands over legacy project

As a gesture of giving back what they took from the school, the 1993 Year Group of the Old Achimotan Association have undertaken a digitization project to make the school’s records management processes paperless.

Records of students until niow were taken manually, a situation that does not allow for the efficient management of school records.

Another phase of digitization will commence on the records of all old students after an archiving exercise which is currently on-going is completed.

Head of the ’93 Year Group Project for the Refurbishment, Kweku Agbeshi, said the gesture was in fulfilment of the requirement of every student or year group to return after 25 years and complete a “legacy project.”

“We completed Achimota School in 1993 and being in 2018, it has been 25 years since we completed. So we decided to come and give back to our alma mater.”

The school’s office has also received a touch of modernisation with the provision of fifteen new laptops, air conditioners, furniture and painting of the school.

Agbeshi said the completing and handing over these projects was expected to launch the school into the 21st Century.

Headmistress of the school, Mrs Joyce Addo, who was elated at the gesture expressed pride at the year group for their thoughtfulness.

“We thank you for your immense contribution to the school”, she noted.

Addo however wants more of such developments and therefore called for more of such gestures in the future.

She pledged on behalf of staff and students to preserve and put to good use the facilities given them.
