UNIJOSA 2003 celebrates 20th anniversary & homecoming

The 2003 graduating group of University Junior High School, Cape Coast has celebrated its 20th anniversary and homecoming.

The celebration which took place from August 24-27, 2023 began with a visit to the school where the old students paid a courtesy call on the acting Headteacher of University Junior High School, Madam Eleanor Onyami, to ascertain the state and progress of their alma mater and appreciate the current challenges faced by the school.

Mrs. Eleanor Onyami expressed her joy and satisfaction when she received the leadership of UNIJOSA 2003 and added that the school is always ready to partner old students to undertake worthy courses to move it to higher levels.

The team had fruitful engagements with the headteacher after which they further interacted with the staff and students at the school.

Speaking on the theme of celebration, “Setting the new standard of excellence: our role and legacy,” the President of UNIJOSA 2003, Mr. Festus Brew Quansah, explained that as the ‘class of excellence’, UNIJOSA 2003 is motivated to inspire the current students to greater heights of excellence and leave them better than they were in school.

In this direction, UNIJOSA 2003 found it very important as part of the celebration to return to the school and speak to the students as a way of inspiring them for the journey ahead of them.

Inspirational messages were delivered by members of UNIJOSA 2003. Mr. Joseph Eric Eduam, a qualified quantity surveyor, project management specialist and CEO of WEL group, and Madam Constance Cobbold, a clinical pharmacist and lecturer spoke on ‘How to be an excellent student and person in life.’

Again, Mr. Abeiku Arthur, an Educational Technologist, spoke on the topic, ‘educating an excellent generation’: innovations for the future’.

He inspired the students to learn assiduously to adapt to new developments such as Artificial Intelligence, ICT skills and other digital endeavours.

As a way of honouring them, and recognising their immense contribution, UNIJOSA 2003 used the opportunity to present citations and gifts to their past teachers in service and retired.

Further, the association inaugurated an award package for the best student in basic 7, best student in basic 8 and best BECE students to be presented during next year’s speech and prize giving day as a way of giving back to their alma mater.

Following other social events, the 4-day celebration ended with a Thanksgiving service at the University Interdenominational Church, (UIC) at the University of Cape Coast.
