It was a very humbling moment for Wesley Girls’ High School as very old, old and recent old girls as well as well-wishers joined hands at the Calvary Methodist Church, Adabraka, on Sunday, 18th September, 2016, to express their profound gratitude to God for His ultimate role in the survival and successes of the school over the years.
The ceremony was to commemorate the 180th Harriet Wrigley Day Celebration. An envoy of students and teachers escorted Mrs. Betty Djokoto, the headmistress, to Accra for the thanksgiving service. Exhortations were given by various guest speakers on the theme: “Great is thy faithfulness oh Lord,”
A session was set aside for the discussion of some issues concerning the welfare of the formidable old girls association. Mrs. Djokoto gave a brief status report on the progress of the school and also put before the house invitations to the programmes marking the school’s 180th Anniversary Celebrations.
Amongst the envoy were the prized Air Force Regimental Band and the School Choir who thrilled the congregation with mellifluous tunes.
The climax of the ceremony was the induction of the 2005/2006 Year Group of Wesley Girls’ High School. The ceremony was graced by many dignitaries such as the Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Theodora Georgina Wood, The Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church Ghana, Most Rev. Titus Awotwi Pratt, the Accra Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Samuel Osabutey and Mrs. Nancy Thompson, the immediate-past headmistress of the school, among others.
There was an inter-house fund raising competition where old girls and affiliates gave generously. In the end, Abban old girls proved their superiority as they led the way. Following respectively were Waldron, Wardbrew, Bellamy, Compton, Wrigley, Ellis and TDJ, with GA trailing behind. The ceremony ended with refreshments for all who attended.
