St. Benedict’s story has its origin from the Weobong Family – a family of vision: a vision of a Modern Educational Institute of a holistic Education of excellence in which the development of the whole human being of body, soul and mind would be the focal point.
The family therefore accepted the challenge that an educational institution be established immediately after the retirement of Mr. and Mrs. Weobong.
Mr. and Mrs. Charles and Rose Mary were dully and compulsory retired on attaining the compulsory retiring age of sixty years in 2000 and 2002 respectively with thirty eight (38) years of teaching and administrative experiences in all the levels from Basic school to Teacher Training College.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Weobong are educational graduates and assistant Directors of education professionally.
The necessary procedures for establishing a private school were carried out to the letter and approval granted by the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service.
An eleven room mud house was sought for and taken over from the District Education directorate in September, 2002.
After serious rehabilitation work was completed, the school opened on 15th October, 2002.
Since then, the school has been forging ahead in its academic and developmental vision plans.
The enrolment is fantastic. Just over five years the enrolment is hitting six hundred (600) pupils.
This alarming rate of growth, despite our inadequate facilities is due to hard work of staff and pupils.
The instantaneous popularity of St. Benedict School Complex in the community is not only ensuring the success of the mission but it also shines on the optimism of the visionaries – the Weobong Family.
The school receives commendation and awards whenever it participates in any activities such as the Nation’s Independence Anniversary Day Parades, quizzes, art competitions, French orals and recitals, as well as soccer.
