Adisadel Old Boys Association Pre-Centenary Memorial Weekend Extravaganza


Dear Friends,

I am writing in the capacity as the Media Relations and Communication officer of the North America chapter of Adisadel Old Boys Association (AOBA) otherwise known as “Santaclausians”

As Adisadel College looks towards it's 100th birthday in 2010 it is worth noting that this institution has not only made itself felt but actually contributed its share to the development and progress of the nation in diverse ways.

Over the years, the School has turned out into the world a steady stream of keen, capable young men, filled with enthusiasm and dedicated to the service of the country and of mankind - men who have contributed and continue to contribute their quota to the enrichment of the life of the nation, in practically all fields of human endeavour. This can be attributed to the life-long preparations given to it's students through education.

In 1977, W. C. Tandoh rightly stated at the Speech and Prize Giving Day...

"Whatever a person decides to do in life demands preparation, the qualities of courage, zeal, dedication and devotion to duty. Each day is a new day that imposes on us new demands and new responsibilities; each dawn has to be faced with renewed vigour and determination. Our suitability for the challenges of each day rests on our sustained endeavours in the acquisition of knowledge and experience and on our preparedness to adapt and utilize them profitably to suit the varying circumstances of life..."

The remarkable visions of Adisadel founder, Rev. Nathaniel Temple Hamlyn will reach the centennial mark on January 4th, 2010. From its humble beginnings in 1910 with 29 students at Topp Yard in Cape Coast, the then SPG (Society for the Propagation of the Gospel) Grammar School now occupies a 4 kilometer square campus with almost 2000 students at Adisadel. Having lived by its motto of "Either the first or with the first", the achievements of the school and the making of Ghana are evident. There is ample evidence pointing to the fact that year- group awards of excellence as well as those of other Santaclausians have continuously motivated not only the staff to work much harder but also the students to burn the midnight oil.

Preparations are currently underway for a grand celebration of the school's 100 years of producing great men. The main centennial celebrations will be held on the school campus the weekend of July 17th and 18th. 2010.

We would like to take this opportunity to invite all well wishers of the school including members of this network to join us in this celebration. It is also worth noting that events are being planned all over the globe by Santaclausians in various parts of the world including USA, Canada and the UK.

Here in Washington DC please see embedded Flyers and additional information regarding the Adisadel Old Boys Association (AOBA North America) Congress to be held in Washington DC from May 22-24 2009. http://www.adisadelonline.com/

We will be most grateful if you will forward this announcement to your members and affiliates in the United States and Canada to attend this weekend extravaganza.
