Co-Curricular Activities – Field Trips
The Department organises educational trips outside the school to serve as the practical and moral aspects of the lessons taught in the classroom. Some of the areas are the Accra Psychiatric Hospital and the Parliament House. It would interest you to know that most of the students come out of the psychiatric hospital with tears rolling down their chicks and finds it very difficult to eat the whole day. We believe this experience would change their attitudes on substance abuse.
We also make a presentation of used clothing(Collected from the staff) to the Hospital for the up keep of the inmates.
