St. Nicholas is the Patron Saint of Seafarers. A large proportion of the population in Tema New Town come from fishing families. Some of our largest sponsors are ship-owners and The Sailors Society regulary visit and sponsor our programmes. It would be safe to say we have a strong connection to the sea.
It was therefore only appropriate that St. Nicholas would have our very own Cadet School, however we could never imagine how popular this activity would become, both with our children and supporters.
Thanks to kind donations and strong relationships with The Sailors Society and the Ghanain Navy, almost a third of our children particpate in the Cadet programme and they love it!
We provide uniforms including boots and belts and items required to do display shows. We have even managed to pursuade the Ghanian Navy to help us and they come to the school and train our Cadets.
