Jopat Academy of Success

Opening Day 2011

Everyone was busy preparing for our Opening Day- all the parents were invited to get an insight in the work of their children, talk to the teachers, visit the exhibition of the art work and the new mural. The feedback was very good, the parents are happy about the teachers performance, the gradually extension of the school and impressed by their children paintings.

Grandma treated us with her amazing Jollof Rice & chicken, Sunanda was facepainting and a lot of games were played. Another successful day

for the Jopat Academy 🙂


Our mural project…

Thanks to the donations collected at our Fundraiser Party “London for Accra” we were able to collaborate with the two local artists Nii Narku Thompson and Serge Attukwei Clottey on our mural for the Jopat Academy. We also were so proud to see our gifted pupils helping us with the painting! After three days decorating the walls in the nursery classroom with some wild animals, numbers and the alphabet, the two talented artists created an abstract painting at the entrance of the school. Now the Jopat Academy has a unique look and the children are even more proud of their school!

Our children also designed some cards with the topics- my portrait, my family, my town- which will be soon on the market in the UK and Vienna to collect more funds for art projects in the future!

Here some pictures of the working process…
