The Chairperson of the Ga Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rev. Dr Godwin Nii Noi Odonkor, has performed a sod-cutting ceremony to begin the construction of a manse for the senior chaplain of the Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (PRESEC), Legon.
The project, which is expected to be completed next year, will cost GH¢200,000 and will have about five bedrooms with toilet and bathroom facilities.
It is being funded by the Ga Presbytery Education Fund.
Rev. Dr Godwin Nii Noi Odonkor said the project, when completed, would house present and future senior chaplains of PRESEC, Legon.
“PRESEC, Legon, is so dear to us because it has achieved a lot for itself and the country as a whole,” he said and added that, “apart from the manse, they would put up a computer laboratory for the Osu Presbyterian Senior High School.
“We have also established a Youth leadership development centre here at PRESEC, Legon, to provide leadership training for the students in order for them to become true leaders when they complete school,” he said.
Rev. Noi Odonkor said the Ga Presbyterian Church of Ghana established the education fund to support the five Presbyterian senior high schools in Accra.
He reiterated the commitment of the church to support the Presbyterian schools in Accra in order to make them stand out among the rest of the schools.
Gratitude to Ga Presbytery
The headmaster of PRESEC, Legon, Mr Africanus Anane, expressed his gratitude to the Ga presbytery for the support, and promised to put all the facilities to good use and maintain them.
He said the residential facility would enable the chaplain to have the peace of mind to perform his duties in the school.
Mr Anane noted that the residence would also serve as a place of abode for other reverend ministers who would visit the school to perform specific duties.
