Before we go on with our report, we should like to pay homage to the departed soul of our mother and librarian, Mrs. Elizabeth Adom – Afrifa. Indeed she was a mother to us all. We pray that the Lord keeps her in Abraham’s bosom. Mummy will always be remembered by all Ahenemma for her smiles and the attitude of always caring for us.
The heights reached and kept by great men were not attain by a sudden flight; but they, while their compatriots slept, were toiling upwards in the night. As the saying goes ‘Life does not give you what you want but rather what you fight for’, the prime aim of every student is to learn and pass the examination, WASSCE in our case. This demands assiduous effort.
OKESS library is one of the platforms which provide the students with the required books and magazines upon which they build their knowledge. The library internally, is made up of forty – sitter capacity which is at least half of a class. It has many books among which are fictions, periodicals, encyclopedia and subject related books such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Geography, History and the like.
Our predecessors, through hard work and co – operation promoted discipline by making sure that there is always a quiet atmosphere. They helped to reduce the stealing of books putting in place the appropriate measures through the help of the librarians. One of the measures was to make borrowing of books easier for students.
As it is known, every position in the school is not a dynasty and must be handed over to another person someday. When we were given the mantle early 2013, it took some time to fit into the realm of business. Through diligent work, discipline and co – operation, we can now boast of some partly achieved targets. We can confidently say that more books have now been added to the stock of books at the library today. There has also been an increase in the number of chairs at the library that now every student who goes to the library could have a place to sit. We headmaster, teachers and all who made our vision see the light of the day.
However, we could not achieve our aim of having an e – library where students could go and make research. We urge those who will be coming after us to push this agenda through so that mother OKESS will be one of the best in the country.
Long live Ahenemma!
Long live mother OKESS!
Long live Ghana!
