HISTORY - BACKGROUND
“Our actions and inactions of today are seeds in the soil of history”. Words in their frailty, cannot fully chronicle the history of Creator Schools. Suffice it to say that Creator schools (initially christened Creator Crèche and Preparatory School) was conceptualized and actualized in 1983 by Pastor Mrs. Comfort Chemfe, a certificated teacher, who resigned from the G.E.S I the afore mentioned year to establish her own school. The founder and bank-roller of the school sees her decision to venture into the educational enterprise as a call which must be fulfilled to its logical conclusion.
Creator Schools joined the league of private schools during the early and turbulent days of Ghana's revolution – a period characterized by an economic crunch, an unprecedented drought, bush fires and famine among other challenges. In the face of these difficulties, many were those who thought that Ghanaians would collectively bite the bullet and surmount the challenges. On the contrary, many a Ghanaian left the country to her fate, a situation which found expression in the massive exodus of some of our best brains to neighboring countries in search of greener pastures. The educational sector bore the brunt of the brain drain as many of our classrooms yawned for teachers.
GENESIS AND RATIONALE
In the midst of these challenges which confronted the educational sector, Creator Schools was born from a humble beginning as a crèche with six (6) toddlers in house no. 75, community 4, Tema.
The school which has the motto, “The wise seeks knowledge” - Proverbs 10:14, is popularly known as CREATOR, an acronym which stands for Consider, Read, Explore, Analyze, Tackle and Organize for Results. This is I line with the vision of the founder to create a conductive academic environment where a new crop of Ghanaians would be trained not as whole sale implementers of ideas but as originators and thinkers who would give reverence to God – the repository of all wisdom. The school adapted the blue colour – symbolizing Royalty. This colour is mirrored in the current school uniform and painting of the school block.
From the onset, Mrs. Comfort Chemfe Adjarko doubled as a teacher attendant and cook, a task which was quite exacting. As the demands of the work at the crèche compounded, the founder sought the assistance of her house help, Akua Larteybia, now Mrs. Lydia Afransi who had to temporarily terminate her apprenticeship career as a seamstress to work as a cook and a cleaner at the nursery.
It must be stressed that the development of creator's infrastructure commenced in a whirl wind fashion and in tandem with the training of the pupils in 1983., but with but with the infrastructure in the lead. Mr. Sosu Avorwuranu a.k.a “one man contractor” - a mason - deserves a special place in the history of the school for being the sole person who has been in charge of all masonry work of the school from the laying of the foundation stone stage till date.
Currently, Creator School prides itself with the under listed facilities: an Administration block comprising a Bookshop, a reception, a sick bay and the M.D and Administrators' offices. Other facilities include a library, a sixty seater computer lab (yet to be hooked to the internet), spacious and well ventilated classrooms with green boards, a vocational skills and per-tech workshop, a science lab and a canteen.
ESTABLISHMENT OF THE KG AND PRIMARY DEPARTMENTS AND PIONEERING TEACHERS
Having prepared the first two batches of pre – school pupils between 1983 and 1985 as a test case, some of the pupils left for other schools. Monitoring their progress gave the feedback that our pupils were faring well. This gave the founder the impetus to keep the dream alive. In 1985 the first batch of the KG moved to the schools present permanent site behind the community four Assemblies Of God Church. With the founder playing the multi – faceted role as the cashier, a teacher and head teacher, there was the need for more hands. Mrs. Agnes Amankwa and Mrs. Evelyn Markin the founders’ sister and daughter respectively came to augment the skeletal staff until some pioneering permanent teachers were employed. An Abbreviated list of those teachers includes Mrs. Evelyn Odei (still teaching at Creator Schools) and Mrs. Elizabeth Datsa.
In 1986 Creator Schools received a clean bill of health from the GES to operate as a basic school though its current batch was at the KG level. As the school gradually grew in stature with an appreciable number of enrollment figures, the lower and upper primary departments were brought on stream. Indeed the early 80's and 90's witnessed an influx of a wave of result – oriented and decent – minded teachers to the school. These include Mr. Sam Quarshie, Mrs. Comfort Asiedu, Mrs. Beatrice Debrah, Mrs. Agnes Aryeteye, Mrs. Rebecca Ali, Mr. P.K. Eghan, Mrs. Regina Wemegah (now the cashier), Mr. Kofi Baah Nyarko, Mr. Attah Forson, Mrs. Cecilia Bernice Amegah, Mr. Kofi Anane, Mrs. Hannah Danquah, Mr. O.K. Lartey and Mr. Yao Boamah King. Mrs. Victoria Djam and Mr. Samuel Quansah. Currently, the numerical strength of staff stands at 76.
ESTABLISMENT OF THE J.S.S. AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS
The school observed its maiden Speech and prize Giving day in 1993 to coincide with its 10th Anniversary. In September of the year, 51 pupils were promoted from stage six to start the junior secondary school program In 1996, the school took the Tema Municipality by storm when 12 students out of the first batch of 50 students obtained grade 1 in all twelve subjects, with all 50 having aggregates with distinction. Perhaps one major breathtaking development which catapulted the image of the school to such dazzling heights was when 89 students of the second batch of 91 graduating students obtained aggregate 6 in the 1997 BECE. Since that epic-making performance was attained, the performance of our students in the BECE has steadily been outstanding. With the school chalking a 100% pass each year.
This exceptional level of academic achievement is due to the unparalleled devotion to duty on the part of the teachers and equally enthusiastic response from the students. We are however not resting on our oars. It is our goal and prayer that one day all our candidates will come out with distinctions in extra examinations.
THE ROLE OF THE SCHOOL LIBRARY
"If we encountered a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what book he read." The one hundred capacity seater, well ventilated library is at the hub of the schools' academic program. It is stocked with current editions of encyclopedias, textbooks, novels and periodicals. To instill the habit of reading in pupils and whet their appetite for research, pupils from stage 1 to JHS 3 are expected to visit the library twice a week at designated periods.
Our students' participation in literary works is quite encouraging. Most of our pupils contribute poems and articles to the Junior Graphic, Step Magazine and also participate in essay competitions organized by the Commonwealth, the Ghana Library Board and the Abibiman Foundation - a child - oriented NGO.
THE COMPUTER LABORATORY
The world has become a global village courtesy ICT. Creator School is not left out of the fray. The facility is a sixty-seater capacity.
At Creator school, the holistic training of the child is our hallmark.
EXTRA CURRICULAR AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
"Leisure is a beautiful garment but it will not do for constant wear" - Anon. To unearth the talents of students, promote the spirit of socialization and give students a clean break with routine academic work, pupils are expected to belong to one of the under mentioned clubs:
The Red Cross Society, Wild Life Club, Art and Drama Club and the Cadet Corp. Members of these clubs embark on periodic field trips to historical, geographical and economic interests to -get a first-hand information on their modus operandi.
The school maintains a regular cultural troupe which performs at various functions of the school
The drama club not only performs at major school functions but represents the school in child-related TV programs like Smart Kids etc.
"A sound mind lies in a sound body." To unearth and develop the potentials of students in a variety of sporting disciplines, Creator Schools has with the help of PEAUDA (training) introduced baseball in the school. The school participated in the 2007 little Baseball League competition organized by Life Vision Baseball Academy International. The feat achieved by the school baseball in the above competition paved the way for the school to participate in the "HERO" competition organized among four schools in Tema Metropolis in 2007, which the school won. Master Martin Offei Opare King had the privilege to participate in the Little International Baseball League staged in Florida, in the US in 2006
