The 1981 year batch of Tamale Senior High school (TAMASCO) have supported their Alma Mater with 3 sets of football jerseys, 2 sets of jerseys for basketball, hockey and volleyball respectively.
2 sets of balls each for basketball, volleyball and football as well as 2 captain armbands and 2 Referee whistles.
The support is aimed at curbing the sports equipment deficit facing the school, thereby obstructing the school’s performance in sporting activities.
The 1981 year group, in making a formal donation of the sports equipment to the school said, they gave the opportunity for the school authorities to make the request on which fields needed urgent assistance before procuring the items.
Spokesperson for the 1981 year group John Emmanuel Ankamah, made this known when he was briefing the media at the presentation ceremony at the forecourt of Tamale Senior High School’s administration block.
“We came here and they gave us a list of things they wanted, so we chose sports. We gave the support to motivate them, sports is an image builder. It brings students together and also unearth their talent.”
The headmaster of TAMASCO, Reverend Edward Azeka, receiving the equipment on behalf of the school, expressed profound appreciation to all members of the 1981 year group for contributing significantly towards the progress of their Juniors and assured that the equipment will be put to good use.
” On behalf of the students and the school, I would like to thank you for the kind gesture. I am happy that you are still thinking about the Alma Mater. God will continue to bless you, so that you will continue to do more.”
The student body could not also hide their excitement, and only had words of praise for their seniors.
” On behalf of the student body, I would like to thank the 1981 year group for such a wonderful gift to support the sports field in the school.” Abodazilin Mackdalyn, a female student from Science 2C echoed in her vote of thanks.
The sports equipment received by the school will boost their morale in their next inter-school and inter-zonal competitions.
