Just like we brought you the full proceedings of the 180th anniversary of Wesley Girls’ High captured on camera, we are back with photos from 90th Founder’s celebration of Achimota school a.k.a Motown.

Achimota school (formerly Prince of Wales College and School) was the first government secondary school in Ghana and it was founded by the Governor of the Gold-Coast at the time, Sir Gordon Guggisberg, a British-Canadian military general, Dr. James Emman Kwegyir Aggrey, an educator and Rev. Alexander (Alec) Garden Fraser in 1924.Achimota school was however not opened until 1927 at an event that was attended by King Edward VIII.

Achimota school has the bragging rights as the secondary school with the highest number of past students becoming Ghanaian leaders and even has several alumni as heads of African countries.The list includes  Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Edward Akufo-Addo, Jerry John Rawlings, and John Evans Atta Mills. Other “Akoras who have become president include Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe and former president of the Gambia, Sir Dawda Jawara.  

The co-educational institution has also won the National Science and Maths quiz twice;(1998 and 2004)
Achimota’s 90th founders’ day celebration was well attended by several dignitaries including the president of Ghana, H.E Nana Akufo-Addo, first  lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo, former president J.J Rawlings and Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings who are both past students, Dr Joyce Rosalind Arye (1957 Girl’s prefect of the school), former Defence minister, Kwame Addo-Kuffour, Prof Ernest Aryeetey and many more.
The highly charged event included several cultural performances and music led by current students of the school.Congratulations to the Grey City of outlaws hills. Long live Achimota, Long live Ghana.
