Nsein SHS named Kwame Nkrumah Senior High School (KNSHS). Read more about this.


The decision to rename Nsein Senior High School to Kwame Nkrumah Senior High School, Nsein, has been formally announced by the board and management of the school, the Nsein Traditional Council, and the Old Students Association.

Mr. Venerable Anthony M. Eiwuley, the former board chairman and an old student, said that the decision was historic and marked a significant milestone in the community’s efforts to honour the legacy of Ghana’s first president, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

At a press conference in Accra, where the restored name was announced, Mr. Eiwuley stated that the official inauguration would take place on September 21 to commemorate Dr. Nkrumah’s 105th birthday anniversary.

The paramount chief of the area, Nana Agyefi Kwame II, made a historic announcement during the 60th anniversary celebration in November 2022, stating that he had made up his mind and supported the school’s renaming. This, he continued, cleared the way for the board of governors to unanimously approve the renaming. 

According to Mr. Eiwuley, the school’s new name would encourage future generations of learners to uphold the ideals and the pursuit of the excellence and independence that Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah represented in Pan-Africanism. 

He continued by saying that the institution urgently needed infrastructure improvement and revealed that a few years prior, a heavy downpour had torn off the roof of one of its dorms.

He underlined that the Old Students Association felt sorry for the government for its tardiness in providing support to the school; as a result, the alumni and old students’ associations of the school were left to shoulder the responsibility of updating the school’s physical and academic initiatives and introducing new ones. 

“We have directly contributed to the physical and social infrastructure of our alma mater, and NOSA now KNOSA has done no less in the past and is determined to do more for our alma mater through corporate and personal finances,” he stated. 

He mentioned that past students had taken action to upgrade the school’s hospital, paint the classroom and dormitory buildings, and install ten-seat restrooms in each of the male and female dorms. 

The paramount chief and his traditional council were deeply appreciated by Mr. Eiwuley on behalf of the old students’ organisation for their insight and vision in reviving the school’s name.
