EXPANSION PROJECT DEDICATION – HOLY TRINITY LUTHERAN SCHOOL, KUMASI

September 14, 2017

The 10th of September 2017, was a day to celebrate another great stride made possible through hard work, dedication, passion and above all the Grace of God. Holy Trinity Lutheran School (HTLS), at Kwadaso Estate in Kumasi hosted a colourful dedication of its expansion project on Sunday, 10th September, 2017. The new two-storey edifice and its ancillary facilities like the two artificial grass-turfs and basketball court gave the school a whole new look and feel.

Right from the day before the dedication, it was an all hands-on-deck affair, with proud teachers and dedicated non-teaching staff of the Evangelical Lutheran Church Schools, as well as their ever vibrant students, playing diverse roles to make the day and occasion as exceptional as it ought to be.

Dignitaries from Government, the Clergy, members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELCG) – Holy Trinity Congregation and parents were all present to give their full-backing and endorsement to the continuous investment being made by the Lutheran Schools in the area of education in Kumasi and Ghana as a whole.

Hon. Osei Assibey Antwi, the Mayor of Kumasi in his speech made reference to his first-hand experience of what it meant to be privileged to have a ward in a school such as HTLS; giving proven accounts of the great men and women the school has produced over the decades of its existence in Kumasi.  Hon Osei Assibey Antwi also commended the ELCS for the prudent use of funds which he believes has translated into what everyone had gathered at the event to celebrate.

The Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, Ghana – ELCG; Rt. Rev. Dr. Paul Kofi Fynn in his sermon and subsequent address mentioned the need for better parenting especially at the early stages of the child’s growth and the need for Christians to leave their comfort zones to spread the good news of Christ. Rt. Rev. Dr. Paul Kofi Fynn also mentioned the significant investment made in the area of education by the Lutheran Church worldwide as the largest protestant Church in the world.

Mr Kwadwo Gyamfi – Director of Schools and Projects at the Evangelical Lutheran Church Schools in his speech expressed gratitude on behalf of the ELCS to the National Education Board (NEB) of ELCG, the Bishop- Rt. Rev. Dr. Paul Kofi Fynn, members of ELCG and Ecobank Ghana Limited, who have all played significant roles in making the project successful.

Speech after speech, right from Mr Kwadwo Gyamfi- Director of Schools and Projects, Dr. Delali Hodasi – Board Chairman (NEB) to Mr Isaac Owusu-Hemeng – NEB Board Member and Chairman of Finance Committee of the NEB, and many others, certain key achievements kept resonating. Among them were the innovative and technologically advanced systems used in the Lutheran Schools to deliver world class convenience and exceptional productivity in the Schools. These include a sophisticated School Management System that gives every parent deep insight into their child’s education, allows teachers to deliver their very best and also keeps pupils on their toes when it comes to their performance. It allows to check for attendance both to school and specific class lessons, student performance, receive class and assignment updates and notifications amongst others.

Another key achievement mentioned is the world-class project management system used by the ELCS in its operations, which also comes with integrated document, task and content management modules, among others. The newest addition which was also touched on in the speeches, was the dedicated mobile application for the various schools, available for both Android and iOS devices – www.lutheranschoolsghana.com/apps. The mobile applications give access to class timetables, subject syllabuses, the school’s calendar, canteen menu, facilitates online admissions, seamless access into the school management system to access your ward’s performance on the go and basically a 360º view of the school and your child’s education from anywhere in the world.

The entourage from Ecobank Ghana Limited; financiers of the project, expressed their immense satisfaction at the project and praised the astute leadership of the Director – Mr Kwadwo Gyamfi in their goodwill message. Ecobank also expressed their joy in the shared value of using technology to serve customers better and in a modern way; a trait they see to be very evident in the way education is delivered at the Lutheran Schools.

In all, it was a very successful day full of gratitude to God, all who contributed to the success of the project, and the lovely pupils and loyal parents of the Holy Trinity Lutheran School.
