Ruby: I remember when D.K came into the common room one time and she was like ‘alrof you I’ve heard the name you’ve been calling me with: WWW.DK.COM! (Wicked Witch of The West) The way we laughed!
Shorshor: She walks into the house while we are scrubbing and shouts ‘Who is that stupid girl scrubbing with her botos in the air?’
Selasi: Do you remember when Elorm first entered Baeta?
Prof. Yayra: Lol they sacked her with cutlasses,brooms, the whole lot!!
Selasi: just because she told us we could not wear colored tops outside and nice slippers too!! The kind of rules she brought! smh
There was something about the campuses…
Samuel: The Western Life is the hustlers life!
Candie: Oh and the West, everyone knows you! If you trip and fall right now, don’t be surprised if they announce it during Dining!!
Dela: The East dierr Silicon Valley of Motown! Noone cares about you charley
The teacher stories…

Candie: Ay! I was afraid of Gameli oo!! Everyday someone was mentioning his name with a sad or angry face.
Shorshor: I jumped out of the window during hair inspection one morning. He caught me and i still told him i didn’t do anything. I got away with it too!lol
Some fateful 2013 Carols Night…
Jess: Who remembers the great 2013 Carols night? We were warned not to make noise during the entry of the choir because the lights will go out. But when the lights went off p3…
Ella: …the form ones started screaming so Tsotsoo sacked them from the Chapel and punished the whole school.
R.A.D: I remember what the headmistress said “ Shame on all of you! This sis how you were going to drag the school in the quagmire if we had visitors! This is so un-Achimotan and you will pay dearly for this!!”….They asked the prefects to sack us and we enjoyed the service from the periphery of the chapel. We couldn’t clap,cheer, nothing!!
Ella: There was no entertainment the following term and each house was punished to break anthills. We didn’t have SRC awards night cos of these form ones.

Didn’t matter how big the school was. Gossip still prevailed…

2016 Leavers service…
R.A.D: This was supposed to be our best service! It turned out to be the worst! Tsotsoo told us we were the worst batch she had ever seen! Then instead of letting us leave, she called out someone who was engaged in exam malpractice to be hooted at
Didn’t end there lol. Prefects of the 2016 batch did not get certificates!! And because i didn’t robe as a chorister, i didn’t even get item 13!!
