Regular power outages experienced by the Mfantsiman Girls’ Senior High School is now over following a donation of a 41,000 Ghana-cedi generating plant by Mr Aquinas Tawiah Quansah, Mfantseman Member of Parliament to the school.

Inaugurating the plant at the school Mr Quansah who is also the Deputy Central Regional Minister, said a request for a stand-by generator for the school was made by Ms Charlotte Addo, the Headmistress during the celebration of the school’s golden jubilee in 2010.

He appealed to the students to take advantage of the generating plant to study hard to improve upon their academic performance “as power will be available to you anytime you will need it for studies.”

“Mfantsiman Girls SHS has set high academic standards which are bound to maintain at all times,” Mr Quansah said.

Ms Addo expressed gratitude to the MP and said a dormitory nearly got burnt when students were studying with candles during power outage and said with the donation of the plant such an incident would not be experienced in the school again.

Vanessla Gbeko, Assistant School Prefect, assured the MP and the school that as the adage goes “to whom much is given, much is expected” they would study hard to improve on the school’s academic performance.

Rev Kwasi Boakye, the Chaplain of the School, dedicated the plant to the Almighty God.
