About Holy Child College of Education
On the 12th of August 1945 the foundation stone of Holy Child College of Education (the combined Catholic Teacher-Training and Secondary School for girls) was solemnly blessed by His Lordship Bishop William Porter and laid by the Honorable T. R. O. Mangin, the Chief Commissioner of the Gold Coast Colony. The Commissioner was very happy that one of the post-war projects was to be the provision of education for girls. On Friday the 21st of June 1946 the college was formally opened by His Excellency the Governor Sir Allan Maxwell Burns who was accompanied by his wife.
