About The Founder
Mrs. Esme Akosua Praah Siriboe, founder of The Morning Star School was born on 25th April, 1926. Her years of formal learning earned her certification in the fields of Education, Child Psychology and Social Work. She worked assiduously, driven by a high sense of commitment to duty and was very keen and concerned about children.
Esme Siriboe’s advanced training in literacy skills helped her formulate policies and constructive programmes for the responsible development of the institution. The Morning Star School received valuable lessons in the power of prayer, discipline, friendship, fair play and academic excellence under her guidance.
She was fortunate in her youth to have journeyed beyond the borders of Ghana from the colonial era, a rare feat for women back then and consolidated the gains in academic enrichment from Wales and the United States of America for educational leadership.
A skillful relationship builder and teacher, an astute negotiator, avid reader, a Girl Guide, an Achimota College tennis, hockey player and Entertainment Prefect, and advocate of Child Evangelism, she showed notable enthusiasm in building a learning community comprehensively.
Mrs. Siriboe nursed an uncompromising desire for assisting the physically and mentally challenged as well as the underprivileged in society and generously offered assistance to several institutions including her church. Some of these institutions have set up facilities bearing her name in her honour.
On the 27th of August 1994, the founder passed away after thirty years of unparalleled and distinguished leadership. She will be remembered for her invaluable contributions to the development of Ghana.
