You might think you know everything about Mfantsiman but did you know it was a mixed school at some point?
Let’s run you through 10 facts of the school.
The school was founded by the late Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
Mfantsiman Girls’ Senior High School started with 70 students.
Mfantsiman Girls’ Secondary School was formerly known as Saltpond Girls’ Secondary School.
The school uniform was green in colour but was later changed to the mauve used up until now.
All the boarding houses in the school are named after former heads of the school.
The former anthem of the school was a latin song which is still used by KNUST as its anthem, and it goes like: Gaudeamus Igitor, Juvenesdum Sumus, Post Jucundem, Juvestutem, Pre Molestem Senectutem, Nos Habis Humus. Meaning: Let us rejoice now that we are young. For after youth comes old age. Before death is senility. Let us rejoice now that we have life.
18 boys graduated from the school.
The motto of the school in Latin used to be “Ad Aster Per Astera”, meaning Aim High.
The name of their alumni group is Mfantsiman Old Girls’ Association (MOGA).
