About Us

On 29th March 1920 the first literary club in this country, the Young men’s Literary Club, was formed. It was the first of its kind in the country. John Buckman, a Ghanaian author and Secretary to the Joint Provincial Council of Chiefs, wrote that on, 29th March 1924, to mark the 4th anniversary of the club, Rev J.T Roberts, founder of Accra High School, made the following remarks: “The difference between the successful boy and the unsuccessful lies in the use of their leisure hours.” He went on to say that “Knowledge is Power only if we apply it. If not it is potential, it is idle, a reservoir: receiving and not giving out; but if it is applied it becomes a power, a pleasure; it changes its potential energy into a kinetic or actual power; it becomes a fountain; it reflects what it receives; it displays its parts and becomes, then, more useful, even, small, than the reservoir with large volume of water standing still. Unless we apply learning, no learning is of any use.”
