WGHS Legacy Project Phase 2 ( Resource Centre)

Wesley Girls’ High School (WGHS), Cape Coast, Ghana takes great pride in raising generations of female African leaders and preparing them towards continued and meaningful contributions in our communities.
 
Founded in 1836 by Mrs. Harriet Wrigley, the wife of a Methodist missionary, with 25 girls, the school now has over 2000 students currently enrolled. The school has consistently proved to be the best all-girls school in the country and having chalked many successes in the fields of Science, Mathematics and the Humanities is highly regarded on the continent.

Government funds are very limited in making provision for all the necessary resources required to maintain the schools’ high standards. Alumnae of the school continuously pool together to support this state funded school. It is the tradition that every year, the alumnae year group celebrating their 20th anniversary of graduating hosts the Speech and Prize-giving Day. In addition, the year group fundraises to deliver on a project for the school that makes provision for critical amenities and resources required.

This year, the school has embarked on a Legacy Project to be completed by 2024, spearheaded by the next three celebratory alumnae year groups (2000, 2001, 2002) and supported by other year groups. This will be a 3-storey multi- purpose Resource Centre designed for the holistic development of staff and students.

Key reasons for embarking on this project include:

• WGHS lacks a basic teachers’ common room and resource hub. Resource Centres have been recognised as an impetus in the delivery of in-service professional development to teachers, keeping them abreast with innovative strategies, providing teaching resources and maintaining critical thinking methods of teaching.

• With the current track system of our secondary schools, teachers have schedules that do not allow them much time to travel back to Accra or other places where national resource centres may be available.

• Offices for administration of the school, are not in a centralised location and are scattered throughout the school leading to management inefficiencies.

• The school does not have a dedicated space where students can seek general guidance and counselling services.

• The advent of COVID-19 has, now more than ever, highlighted the need to ensure protocols associated with spatial arrangement and usage are adhered to.

The proposed Resource Centre is designed to serve students, teachers and non-teaching staff with specifications including:

• Multi-functional conference/meeting rooms

• Computerised units for virtual learning

• Collapsible training facilities for teachers and staff

• Students’ guidance and counselling offices

• Offices for headmistress, teachers and support staff

• An auditorium


The project is expected to cost $450,000 in total and will be mainly funded by donations.


We will be most grateful if you would make a donation of any amount in support.


Thank you in advance for your generous support. We cannot do this without you.
