Director of Audit Donates Jerseys, footballs to University Primary and JHS

The Director of Internal Audit, Mr. Emmanuel Owusu, has presented two sets of Jersey, two footballs and two trophies each to the University Primary and Junior High Schools respectively towards the development of sports in the two schools. The donation was in response to an appeal made by the authorities at the University Primary to benevolent individuals for sporting kits to enable the school to participate in the University Basic Schools Sports Association (UBaSSA) Games in 2016. Making the presentation at the premises of the school, Mr. Owusu, who is a past student of the University Primary school, said the donation was to motivate the pupils to participate actively in sports. He stressed the need for the school pupils to be given the opportunity to develop their talents through exposure to extra curricula and academic work. The Director of Internal Audit, who was accompanied by some staff members of the Directorate, appealed to the pupils to learn hard to justify the huge parental investments being made in them in their academic pursuit. The Headmistress of the University Primary School, Mrs. Georgina Aglobitse, who received the items on behalf of the schools, thanked the donor for the kind gesture. She was optimistic the items would spur the two schools to win more laurels in all sporting activities. The Headmistress appealed to other past students of the schools, the general public and other corporate institutions to emulate the gesture by extending their Corporate Social Responsibilities to the Schools. Mrs. Aglobitse promised to use the items for the intended purpose so as to build the talents of the school children in sporting activities. The Headmistress of the Junior High School, Mrs. Kate Frimpong, as well as other teachers, was present during the ceremony. In a related development, the Director of Internal Audit, Mr. Emmanuel Owusu, has presented a giant trophy to the Sports Section to be given to the winner of the 2017 Staff Soccer Competition. He said that the donation formed part of his contribution to the advancement of sports in the University. Receiving the item on behalf of the Section, the Head Coach of the Section, Dr. Daniel Apaak, commended Mr. Owusu for his immense contribution towards the development and progress of sports on campus. "In fact, when it comes to sports, this man (Mr. Owusu) is always there for us. We cannot talk about UCC Sports without mentioning his name," he said.
