The purpose of the Distinguished Alumni Award is “to bestow recognition and appreciation for outstanding achievement. The award is a meritorious reflection on the school and provides inspiration and encouragement for our young people.

Every August, Barbeques are our way of getting connected to our community in Toronto. Free food and drinks are paid for by members and freely served at the picnic cum barbeque event. To take advantage of cost sharing and other synergistic benefits, we collaborate with other existing
Ghanaian Secondary School fraternities in the community such as St. Louise Secondary School, Opoku Ware Secondary School and Wesley Girls’ High School.

In July, we visited our members who live in the nation’s capital, Ottawa, on GhanaFest, an annual event organized by the Ghanaian community in Ottawa. We provided water for the public and had a thanksgiving service at The Ghanaian Pentecostal church where we donated some funds to the youth ministry of the church; it was coincidentally youth week at the church.

In November, we have our End-of-year Dinner and Dance. This is the event we use as a fundraising moment to support our alma matter, Aburi Girls Senior High School. We sell marked-up tickets to our friends and family only, and reserve the marked-up profit for the School. At this event, we also ask sponsors to sponsor awards that we give away to one Secondary School
student and one tertiary institution student who excel academically and are also involved in some community volunteering activities. This is our way of encouraging the youth in our community that service to mankind is service to God.
