At School in Ghana

By Sr. Erlinda A. Macatol, RVM

I came to Ghana in 1982 through the invitation of Peter Kwasi Sarpong was for a long time very concerned about the number of girls especially from the poor homes who could no longer get access to the expensive Boarding School System in Ghana.

So I was given the job of Headmistress (High school Principal of a newly establish Day Secondary School for the Girls named Prince of Peace Girl’s Secondary School. This day school is also a vehicle for preparing possible candidate to the religious life. Prince of Peace then was established as the a Day Secondary School (just like our school in the Philippines where student go home to their respective families). At the moment, we have about thirty aspirants who wish to become Sisters recommended by their Parish Priest.
