The Tema Senior High School Old Students Association (TOSA) has donated assorted hygiene enhancing items to students and staff of its alma mater.

The items  included 21 pieces of Veronica buckets with metallic standS, packs of paper towels, 93 gallons of liquid hand wash soap, five pieces of soap dispensers, 62 bottles of mechanical spray bottles and several bottles of hand sanitizers.

Mrs Mercy Mensah-Addo, National President of TOSA, presenting the PPE to school authorities, said the old students were augmenting the government’s supplies, as government could not carry the full weight of every school’s needs.

“We are happy to say that so far we haven’t heard any bad news coming from the school and we want to keep things that way so we thought of bringing these things to help keep the students and staff safe, ” she added.

Mrs Mensah-Addo said “we know the students have started their exams and we pray that they continue to keep the protocols and make very good use of the items we are presenting today”.

Receiving the items on behalf of the school, Mr Emmanuel Kobina Baidoo, headmaster of Temasco, expressed gratitude to the timeliness of TOSA’s gesture, and assured that they would be used judiciously.

In an interaction with the Ghana News Agency (GNA), Mrs Mercy Mensah-Addo said the association had plans to support the school in other areas and was therefore consulting the school’s authorities on other needs they may have.
