Principal's Welcome

Barbara Deveney

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the International School of Ahafo.  We are a small school but we have big aspirations and are striving to become a centre of educational excellence in this part of Ghana.  As you will see from the history of the school, ISA has been established to educate the children of Newmont Goldcorp Ghana Ahafo managers and our students therefore come from as far afield as Indonesia, Chile, Colombia, United Kingdom and Australia, as well as from Ghana itself.

The International School of Ahafo has appointed a highly qualified teaching staff made up of teachers from the UK, Ghana and South Africa.  We work together as a strong team and share the philosophy that learning should be stimulating and interesting, as well as challenging and rigorous.  We encourage our students to develop independence and responsibility in their learning and acquire not only a life-long love of learning but also an inquisitive nature and a keen interest in the world around them.  Our school mission statement underlines the fact that we maintain high expectations in our learning community and we place the students firmly in the centre of all our decision-making. Our school is located in the heart of the countryside, well away from the traffic and noise of the city, so offers a healthy environment within a calm and tranquil atmosphere, thus providing a wonderful setting for our students.

I do hope you enjoy looking through this information about our school and, if you feel you would like to know more, then please do contact us and we can answer your questions or schedule a visit.
