The rest are the headmaster of the school, Mr Ebenezer Graham Acquaah; a representative each of the non-teaching and teaching staff, Thomasia Atieku and Liticial Mamle Dosoo and the secretary to the board, Mrs Alberta Grace Pokoo.
Mr Odamtten, who is also an old student of the school, explained the benefits of institutional memory as related to an organisation such as a school.
