The Junior Common Room Council (JCRC) in collaboration with the Management of the Kwame Nkrumah Hall has inaugurated a new fitness centre for all affiliates and non-affiliates of the University of Cape Coast. The occasion was graced by the presence of the first hall master (Prof. Atta Britwum), hall tutors, former JCRC executives, executives from sister halls and members of the hall as well.
Inaugurating the centre after some aerobics, Mr. John P.K. Adotey, a hall tutor and president of the Hall’s Alumni Association said that exercising the body was very important hence, the adage “A sound mind stays in a healthy body.” He added that “Kwame Nkrumah Hall as pacesetter has introduced another innovation in UCC.”
He explained that the centre would contribute to healthy lifestyle of members and affiliates of the hall and therefore encouraged students and staff of the University to make good use of the centre to help them stay fit and healthy. The new center boasts of state-of-the-art fitness machines, and other traditional weightlifting equipment.
According to the instructors of the centre, it would be opened to members of the University Community from Wednesday to Sunday, 5:30am – 7:00am. In order to maintain the facility, interested affiliates of the Hall and non- affiliates/Staff would pay Ghȼ20.00 and Ghȼ 30.00 per semester respectively to the Hall Bursar as a registration fee.
