On Saturday 26th November 2022, Legacy Girls’ College held its 3rd Speech and Prize Giving Day on the school premises.

In delivering the ultimate address, the Guest Speaker, Mrs. Yawa Hansen-Quao (Director of Ashesi University), emphasised that the world is looking for people with courage: the courage to stand up for what they believe in, the courage to do the things people say it is impossible, and the courage to dare to accomplish greatness.
The Speech and Prize-giving day is an annual program held to recount the school’s successes and highlight the school’s agenda while also rewarding hardworking staff and performing students in various academic and social disciplines.
The Head of School, Mrs. Nancy Duah in her speech recounted that the past couple of years without the speech day due to the various Covid-19 restrictions has not affected the operations of the school, but has rather seen the school leverage technology and other measures to catapult it into new territories of success.
Legacy Girls’ College is the first private all-girls boarding school in Ghana. Its founders, Dr. Mrs. Ellen Hagan and Mrs. Essie Anno-Sackey are on course to achieving the school’s mission to nurture and develop its students to be ethical and dynamic leaders who strive to make a positive difference in the world.
