Soronko Academy was thrilled to attend the inauguration of the Girls Club at La Bawaleshie Presbyterian School today, February 12th, 2020.
The event began with a song by the Girls’ Choir, followed by cultural dance and musical accompaniment. The singers, dancers, and musicians put on a great show for the crowd.
The Headmistress delivered a speech on empowering women. She reminded everyone that “when you educate a man, you educate an individual. When you educate a woman, you educate a nation.” Various invited guests, including our CEO, Mrs. Regina Honu, made speeches to praise the Girls Club initiative. Mrs. Honu expressed her excitement for the Girls Club and reiterated Soronko’s commitment to La Bawaleshie School. She also discussed the importance of ensuring that girls receive the same STEM education as boys and expressed her desire to support the Girls Club through ICT training.
After the guests’ speeches, the students performed another cultural dance, which captivated the crowd. Then, a student rapper appeared as everyone cheered enthusiastically to welcome him on stage. He entertained the audience with his lyrics and humor.
The final performance was a sketch acted out by seven students. The sketch told an encouraging story of two girls who became successful because their mother insisted on sending them to school. Finally, after the closing remarks and closing prayer were delivered, the invited guests posed for a group photo and thanked the school staff for the wonderful event. #Girlsclub #mydigitalskills #GirlsinICT
