The University of Cape Coast Chapter of BASSOSA has brought its Homecoming programme to a successful end. The Chapter embarked on a homecoming programme from Friday, 22nd to Sunday, 24th February, 2013. Other BASSOSANS form the various tertiary institutions also participated to contribute their quota.
The activities started on Friday, 22nd February,with a courtesy call on some of the school authorities.
The old students, on Saturday morning, joined the students for a clean-up exercise throughout the campus. This was followed by a talk by the old students with the Forms one and two students on the topic, “Achieving Academic Excellence.” Other areas of the academia were also tackled. In the afternoon, there was a football match between the old students and the schoolteam which resulted in a 5-2 score against the school team. The old students then joined the school for their entertainment.
The old students and the school joined for a Thanksgiving service on Sunday, 24th February. The preacher (an old student) admonished the students to keep on with their faith even as they are in school for the Lord is the Alpha and Omega of everything that was made. He also encouraged them to be disciplined as it is one of the keys to a successful life.
A presentation was made by the old students and they donated15 containers to be used as dustbins to the school, so as to keep the environment clean.
The headmistress, Madam Sabina Forson, in her speech, expressed gratitude to the old students for thinking about their Alma matter and for the kind gesture shown to the entire BASS community. She also entreated both the BASS students and the old students to continue with every good work they have started.
The chapter President, Mr. Richard Ben Dadzie, in his speech, also encouraged the students to take their studies serious so as to make it to the tertiary level and develop new ideas, as well as fitting well into the larger society. He continued to thank the entire staff and students of BASS for contributing their quota in making the homecoming successful.
After the church service, the BASSOSANS had a talk with the Forms three and four students, who are about writing their WASSCE, on the topics, “Achieving Academic Excellence & Life at the Tertiary Level.” This enlightened most of the students on how they can gain opportunities into the various tertiary institutions and how life in the tertiary level is. The old students also encouraged them to equip themselves with other entrepreneurial skills which will make the fit well into the society and achieve greater success.
The old students then met with the school authorities for the closing courtesies, after which they departed for their various destinations.
