(Ghana) Frafraha: Autism school celebrates 10th anniversary

July 10, 2023, Frafraha, My Joy Online: Woodfield Manor Autism and Special Needs School celebrates 10th anniversary

Woodfield Manor Autism and Special Needs School has celebrated its 10th anniversary at a special program at the school premises at Frafraha in the Adentan Municipality of the Greater Accra region on Friday, July 7, 2023.

The CEO of the school, Mrs. Cornelia Boateng, in her welcome address recounted how difficult it has been to nurture the children with special needs to reach this far. From ground zero, this school, through its patron, Dr. Sam Jonah, Ghacem and others, has increased their number from below 10 in the beginning to over 40 children.

Children of this nature need water therapy most of the time. That’s why in most cases, they are referred to as ‘Nsuo ba”, when they are born. We are grateful for ERATA Hotel, in Accra, for providing the kids with swimming pool for water therapy. With this support, some of the kids are able to swim and can represent Ghana in international competitions. We call on the Government and corporate bodies to come to our aid.

Mrs. Cornelia Boateng also thanked all for helping the school to reach this milestone. For the 10th anniversary, the school is proud to open the same school in Kumasi to mark our 10th anniversary celebration. The school is ready and next week Friday, July 14, 2023, we will be in Kumasi to open a similar Woodfield Manor Autism and Special Needs School to serve the Ashanti region. Our patron, Her Royal Lady Julia, the wife of Asantehene, will lead the team to open the Kumasi branch of Woodfield Manor Autism and Special Needs School….

Sermon was delivered by Father Edmund Donkor Bainii and Father Campbell provided a motivational message to the owner of the Woodfield Manor Autism and Special Needs, Mrs. Cornelia Boateng, for her dedication and service to humanity. He also prayed for the children with autism and special needs.

Anniversary cake was cut and enjoyed by the children, guests, teachers and workers of the home. Special awards were presented to teachers, individuals and corporate bodies who have supported the Woodfield Manor autism and special needs home. Representatives from Movenpick Hotel graced the occasion and presented an undisclosed amount of money and drinks to refresh the children. The Humble band from Tema, a group of visually impaired musical band graced the occasion with their sweet melody to the admiration of the guests and the children with autism and special needs.
