The History of Kumasi High School’s Different Houses
HOUSE KUSIKYI (HOUSE 1)
In remembrance of the people and chiefs who donated the land for the school, Kusikyi was named after the stool of Gyinyase, the town where the school is located.
BONSU OSEI (HOUSE 2)
This home bears the name of Nana Osei Bonsu, the late brother of Nana Otumfuo Opoku-Ware II. It was originally intended to bear the name of the late Otumfuo, but he insisted on naming it after his adored brother Nana Osei Bonsu, and the school administration agreed.
SEFA BOAKYE (HOUSE 3)
Blessed Memorial’s Dr. Sefa Boakye made a name for himself as a respected general practitioner and scholar. He was first appointed as the board’s chairman and then as a member of the board of governors.
He obtained the land at Gyinyasi when he was in power. He was the driving force behind all the arrangements made in order to relocate the school from Kwadaso to its current location. He gave money to support the construction of the three dorm blocks located behind the cafeteria of the institution. Later on, one of the homes was dubbed “Sefa Boakye Lodge” in honour of his magnificent memory.
HOME OF KYEREMATENG (HOUSE 4)
In honour of Mr. Kyeremateng, the founding director of the Kumasi Cultural Centre, which is now the Centre for National Culture (CNC), Kyeremateng House bears his name. He made numerous contributions to the school’s founding as well.
