Wedding planning means moments full of laughter, light nudges, lots of stress, many debates, and critical decision-making. When it comes to deciding what to include and what to avoid, the main focus can be on the selection of music for ceremony and reception. Different options emerge in mind, and after all the arguments, going with a live band can feel like the best choice. Yes, there is no doubt that a live music band on your special day can create magic that you haven’t even thought about yet. Here is a simple glimpse of this. 

The perfect atmosphere

Live musicians and entertainers tend to be extremely energetic. They can move the audience and keep them occupied. When they begin to pay, the whole atmosphere converts into a celebratory mood. With that, the touch of elegance and sophistication they lend to your wedding, ceremony, cocktail party, and dinner time remains matchless. At the time of their performance, anyone can hardly stop themselves from grooving to their tunes.

The comprehensive experience

Why do you think people enjoy musical concerts so much? People love to witness such events because they appeal to their different senses. They don’t just listen, but also feel it. So, its impact doesn’t limit itself to their ears. From inside-out, they soak in this. That’s why perhaps even those who can’t dance, get involved in the music. When wedding bands unleash their performance, the guests get to absorb the same vibe.  


The melting pot of different generations

In a wedding ceremony, there are going to be all types of people in terms of age groups. Your wedding day checklist must have options for everyone, from kids to adults and seniors, everyone will be a part of the event. Due to the gap in tastes and choices, it can be challenging to get them together. But when a live band begins, people usually forget their biases and join in the fun with others. So, it will not be wrong to say that music becomes a uniting factor.

The unique factor for bride and groom

You will have your first dance with your spouse. You can choose a pre-recorded song for this occasion or have a live band play this for you. Since the pre-recorded music is not going to have any variation, people will also not have much expectation from this. They would have listened to it the way it is about a hundred times already. However, when a live wedding band plays it, they add their unique element to the song for you two. Their style and flavor make it even more exclusive.

The memorable moment for your guests


Why do you become so particular about all the gorgeous details when you plan your wedding? You want to make your wedding the most memorable day for not just the two of you but others also. That’s why the idea of introducing a live band looks great. The professionals know to lift the mood in the party or adapt to a wave so that everyone gets involved.

So, when you choose a live band for your wedding, rest assured that your guests and you both will have the ultimate fun.

Holy Child alumni illuminate the path forward amidst national school power crisis




In recent times, the narrative of power challenges in Ghanaian schools has escalated, with numerous public institutions such as Mfantsipim School, Accra Academy, and Mondo Senior High Technical School among others facing abrupt electricity disconnections. 

This persistent issue highlights the dire need for sustainable solutions in powering educational facilities, crucial for maintaining the quality of education.

Stepping into the spotlight with a pioneering initiative, the 1999 alumni of Holy Child School have set a remarkable precedent.

 In a bid to combat these electricity woes, these visionary women have successfully funded the transition of their alma mater to 75% solar energy. This initiative not only addresses the immediate problem of power outages and financial strains on the school’s budget but also serves as a beacon of climate-positive action with the potential for carbon credit benefits.

Founded in 1946 by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, Holy Child School has long stood as a bastion of educational excellence and societal impact in Ghana. Its alumni include distinguished personalities such as Ghana’s Ambassador to France, Anna Bossman; Goldman Sachs Vice President, Sabina Dankwah; and University of Ghana’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nana Aba Amfo, to name a few.


The Solar Project

This solar project, a gift from the 1999 alumni commemorating their 25th anniversary and coinciding with the school’s 78th speech and prize-giving day, symbolizes a profound act of giving back and forward.

 In an exclusive interview with the Business and Financial Times, engineer Ing. Mrs. Sheila Enyonam Akyea, president of the year group, shared:  “This project builds on the foundation laid by our predecessors. We’re thrilled to extend their initial contribution, ensuring every corner of our school benefits. It’s our way of ensuring current and future students receive the same level of empowerment and opportunity we had.”

Project’s Committee Chair Ing. Mrs. Teresa Kyei-Mensah, mentioned the substantial investment the solar installation demands, emphasizing ongoing fundraising efforts.

she said: “Once completed, the initiative promises significant savings for the school and, by extension, the Ghana Education Service, redirecting funds towards essential educational resources,” she added.


Solar power, increasingly recognized for its affordability and environmental benefits, stands as a viable solution for Ghana’s educational sector and its broader climate goals. With abundant sunshine year-round, Ghana is ideally positioned to harness solar energy, reducing the financial burden on public resources while contributing to global carbon reduction efforts.

The project was completed in January 2024 after a 1-month testing phase. The year group eagerly anticipate the handover ceremony at the 78th Speech and Prize-Giving Day of Holy Child School in Cape Coast on Saturday, 9th March 2024 marking a significant milestone in their commitment to sustainable development and quality education in Ghana. 

This initiative not only lights the way for other schools grappling with similar challenges but also underscores the powerful impact of alumni engagement in shaping a brighter future for the next generation.pastedGraphic.png
