Welcome at the Rockanjeschool


The school in 1996

"Stichting OldTafo scholenproject" has helped streetchildren in the slums of Kumasi in Ghana to go to school since 1996. "Old-Tafo" is the name of the district in Kumasi where the school is. The founders are from Rockanje and surroundings, hence the name "Rockanjeschool". In Ghana the school is also known as "Rockanje Presbyterian Experimental Basic School" or "Rockpres".



The school today

At this moment the school has more than 1675 pupils and 50 teachers, including extra staff, work there. The building has 2 floors where the children can be taught at the nursery, at the kindergarten, at primary school and at secondary school. Besides that, the school has a technical center, a computer department, a clinic and a kitchen. For more information, click here.
