The renovation project, funded by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, included a 3-storey, 18-unit classroom and kindergarten block handed over by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) to the Korle Klottey Municipal Assembly in 2019, a computer laboratory equipped with 40 computers, a library stocked with over 2,000 reading materials, upgraded drainage systems, new pavements, landscaping, and improved sanitation facilities.

Additionally, the project introduced an astroturf football pitch with a 60-seater spectator stand, a 100- seater canteen, and an enhanced school entrance, which now features a fence wall and improved perimeter security.

Speaking at the ceremony, Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, urged corporate institutions to invest in education and called for support for the redevelopment of basic schools within Accra, especially the Sempe Cluster of Schools in Jamestown.

He pointed out that every child within the Ga State and across the country deserves a quality education, irrespective of their backgrounds or circumstances, adding that " nurturing the minds of our youth not only creates a talent pool of human capital but also secures a prosperous future for generations"
