Over 11,000 young people from across the Commonwealth entered the Commonwealth Queen’s Essay Competition. This year’s competition was themed ‘A Connected Commonwealth’ and entrants were asked to consider how they can work to use cultural, technological and environmental connections for positive change across the Commonwealth.
Summer break is great because it allows one to relax, revitalize and explore a whole new world away from the norm. Ohemaa Aseda Kyei-Mensah, a year 6 pupil at GIS decided to embark on a reading campaign in collaboration with the Management of Westhills Mall during her summer break. Equipped with leadership skills, and encouraged to be socially responsible citizens at school, taking on this role was a natural step!
During the summer holidays, Nana Afia Addae, a Form 5 Student of GIS was declared the overall winner of an essay competition dubbed “What’s Your Thing?”.
The competition, supported by Stanbic Bank, Ghana, was organized as part of a Ghana/China Cultural Exchange Programme under the auspices of both the John Agyekum Kuffour and Rebecca Akufo-Addo Foundations.
