St. Louis SHS wins Best Behaved School Award at InterCo

St. Louis Senior High School was crowned the Best Bahaved School at the climax of the zonal stages of the Ashanti Regional Inter-Schools and Colleges Athletics Competition at the Baba Yara Stadium last Friday.

The students of St. Louis who were positioned near their “boys”, Opoku Ware School (OWASS), really demonstrated very good behaviour without compromising on their display of affection for OWASS as both schools chanted joint “Jama” songs to cheer athletes from both schools in all sections of the competition. The AkataSlopsa spirit was at its peak at the stadium. This is their 6th Best Behaved award within 8 years.

One could hardly see a student in St. Louis uniform roaming about at the stadium unlike other schools that were present for the competition. They have been consistent in such behaviour in all their outings for so many years. They are admirable in all their functions since they exhibit good manners with high discipline.

Ms Spendilove Opoku who won the 100m hurdles collected the Certificate on our behalf. At the right hand is Ms Shalom Nyamekye who came third in the 100m hurdles.

Mrs. Victoria Usher Atta Boakye, Assistant Headmistress Academic of St. Louis Senior High School in Kumasi, has appealed to the authorities of Ministry of Youth and Sports of the country to attach more importance to school sporting activities in the country to get a hold of potential sports women and men for the future.

Mrs. Victoria Usher Atta MRS VICTORIA USSHER BOAKYEBoakye made the appeal at the weekend during St. Louis SHS 2014/2015 Inter- houses athletics competition at the Stadium De Theresa complex.

She explained that it was time for the Ministry of youth and sports to pay close attention to sporting activities in schools since schools could be one area in which the country could get dedicated, committed,  disciplined and comported sports personnel particularly athletes from.

She stated that athletics and other sporting activities should not be seen  as a disciplined for students with low academic performance, rather it should be seen as one of the areas that could help in inculcating the spirit of discipline, comportment, patriotism and good morals in students.

Students Donate To Deprived School


Timeabu ( Ash)Miss Josephine Korang Osei -Tutu, St. Louis Senior High School senior Prefect, has urged the government and the authorities of Ghana Education Service to make schools in deprived areas in the country more attractive to professional teachers to help improve the academic performance of pupils in such areas.

Miss Josephine Korang Osei -Tutu made the appeal on Thursday, when the students of St. Louis SHS in Kumasi presented some educational materials worth GHC 1,500.00 to pupils of Timeabu M/A Primary School in the Ejisu Juaben Municipality.

She observed that as a result of poor working conditions in deprived areas professional teachers did not feel happy to accept postings to such areas.

She noted that the aim of government to provide quality education to Ghanaian children could only be achieved when teachers, who were the center of the provision of quality education, are well motivated.

She explained that the educational materials which were included: 527 exercise books , 43 Note books,300  writing books, reading books, pencils, pens , erasers, some drinks and biscuits were donated by the entire students’ body.

The donation of the educational materials was part of the St. Louis SHS Students’ Representative Council (SRC) week celebration and also to mark the Universal Children Day of UN which falls on every 20th November each year.


Miss Osei -Tutu, said deprived schools could be attractive to professional teachers if government could make it a policy to build attach accommodations to every school block that would be built in the deprived areas, supplying deprived schools with solar light, portable water and motor-bikes for teachers to make movement to their respective education office easier for them.

Mr. Edward Adams, Ejisu Juaben Municipal Director of Education, commended the students of St. Louis SHS for their kind gesture and encouraged other students in cities to emulate what the St. Louis SHS students had done.

Nana Kwadjo Adu, odikro of the village who received the items on behalf of the pupils pledged that they would ensure that the items would be used for its intended purpose and also hoped that the items would go a long way to improve the academic performance of the pupils.
