OAA93 Fundraising Banquet in collaboration with the OAA NCA/USA
Let us make Achimota School pacesetters in this digital age!Achimota School (formerly Prince of Wales College, now nicknamed Motown), is a co-educational boarding school. It was founded in 1927 and has educated many African leaders, including the first president of Ghana- Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. The motto of the school is Ut Omnes Unum Sint meaning "That all may be one", a reference to the founders' expressed philosophy that starting in the context of school life, black and white, male and female, everyone should integrate and combine synergistically for the good of all.
