News from the campus in Ghana
Here you see all news entries of the whole year at a glance. Our campus is colourful. Convince yourself.
With the students, parents, our chairman Tom Vernon, the Mim Paramount Chief and his council, the attaché of the Danish Embassy as well as numerous guests from the education authority and friends of the academy we celebrated the renaming of the academy. During the celebrations our new technical equipment was presented to the guests. With this equipment our students learn at European level and can even use computers with internet access. The equipment was donated by BIC electric. We can’t say thank you often enough.
“Farmers’ Day” is a holiday in Ghana to honour and celebrate all farmers and fishermen. It is celebrated on the first Friday in December. This year, we engaged the employees of Mim Cashew in a friendly competition. At 10.00 o’clock in the morning the competition kicked off with an egg-and-spoon race. By the way, in Ghana the eggs are replaced by limes. Then we cheered for participants in a sack race. Afterwards, our female students really showed their mettle in the volleyball match, triumphing in a clear two set victory. The men’s team however fought a three set thriller in the volleyball with a close victory for the Mim Cashew team. In the afternoon, the female team asserted their dominance again in a football match. After the final whistle, it was 2:0 for the Ghana Greentech Academy. The last competition was the men’s soccer match. Under a very heated atmosphere, our students were defeated 2-0 by the Mim Cashew workers. The rematch takes place next year – by tradition.
In November, the trophy went to a first grade student: Kyekyeku Kwadwoo Oppong. We are particularly proud of Kyekyeku. He found GHC 10 on the school grounds and handed the money to a teacher for keep. The GHC 10 was returned later the same day when the rightful owner of the money began to spread the news of his loss. Honesty must be rewarded. Bravo Kyekyeku!!
One simple name, one big idea and many projects, that’s what Operation 100% is all about. Operation 100% was created to encourage employees and students to measurably improve their performance throughout the school year. Our goals are 100% promotion of students, 100% graduation of the final class, 100% teamwork and spirit at the academy, 100% quizz and speed tests- we want to win a regional quiz competition, 100% English usage – only English language should be spoken during school hours and of course 100% advanced technical practical projects.
