HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL

The school was the brain child of the chief of Kenyasi II, Nana Nsiah Ababio II.  He and his elder wished to have a Girls’ Secondary School in the area to help the young girl to acquire formal education.  To achieve this dream they approached the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sunyani, Most Rev. James Owusu (of Blessed Memory) who in turn contacted the international women congregation the OLA Sisters who also promptly responded to his call to establish and run the school.  the school was started with 34 pupils on the 27th of September, 1974.  it was absorbed into the Government Public System in September, 1976.

YEAR OF ESTABLISHMENT: 1974
