GRASAG Wins International Award
Aburi Old Girls Association (AOGA)
Our association is formed of members of all past year groups residing in this country. We meet quarterly on a Sunday at Crown Court Church of Scotland whom we are affiliated with as they are Presbyterian. We hold joint services there with the congregation but more importantly, we ask and we are given the freedom to hold our own special services there, for example, the memorial service for our former Headmistress. We are also linked in global partnership (in line with the government’s initiative for schools here in the UK to link with schools across the world) to Cove Secondary. With the President of our association a teacher in this school, it has been easy to exchange cultural visits and on top of that enhance the curriculum for the students on both sides. Cove School has contributed immensely by donating various resources for science and books for the library and even has had a whole borehole sunk to help alleviate the acute water shortage at Aburi. We follow closely activities that are going on in Ghana and we organise our own versions here.
