Students of Bolgatanga Girls Senior High School have made a passionate appeal to the public ahead of the school’s 50th-anniversary celebration in November 2023.
During an interview with Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Region, members of the Youth Harvest Clubs expressed that in order for the school to effectively plan and celebrate this monumental achievement, they require public support.
The support requested by the students includes financial contributions, donations of food and food items, as well as paint and other building materials.
“I want to use this opportunity to tell the public that our school will be having its 50th anniversary and we are asking stakeholders and everyone else to come and help us make this event a memorable one. Old students, come and help your students and the school. We need financial support. If you also can paint our school for us, we would be grateful. Nothing is too small,” Barikisu Mohammed, a second year General Art student and member of the Harvest Youth Club said.
Fiona Awiah, another student and member of the Harvest Youth Club, explained that the food situation in the school is not one that is healthy for the students and as such, immediate help is needed.
“Food is also an important issue. At the dining issue, you see students struggling over food,” she said.
The Youth Harvest Club at the Bolgatanga Girls Senior High School is one of five such schools setup by the Youth Harvest Foundation in senior High Schools in the Bolgatanga Municipality, Bolgatanga East District and the Talensi District of the Upper East Region.
