A Word from out Principal

Principal: Ms EJ Sarpong

Ms EJ Sarpong

The 18th of May was the Principal’s birthday at Via Nova School. It was a joyful day seeing learners gathered with teachers and staff at large to wish Mrs Sarpong a happy birthday. A message from the top management on behalf of the rest of the school was “Today the words elegance, wisdom found their meaning because a queen was born. Elegance, because of your sophisticated style and beauty, your confidence and comfortableness in your own skin. Your wisdom in the day-to-day matters, and beyond. Your judgement serves as excellent guidance for the people you lead, with all the qualities of an exceptional leader is evident in your life and the source of your wisdom.

Proverbs 9:10:
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One(is understanding.”
On behalf of all staff and learners of Via Nova School, we wish you a happy, happy birthday.
We appreciate you!
