Six Ghanaian leaders felt the need to construct an educational institution to meet the educational needs of the young people living in the Osu and La areas and surrounding areas in 1949. As a result, a private school was founded in the Ako Adjei area.
At the time of Ghana’s independence, Kwame Nkrumah, the country’s first president, knew that in order to accomplish his vision for the country’s quick development, educational facilities needed to be widely available and brought to the doorsteps of every Ghanaian child.
During the first republic, the Ghana Educational Trust was established, with the mission of constructing school buildings around the country, including in Labone. The school was later moved to its current location (opposite the Labone S.D.A Church).
The school has aa crest that reflects the vision of the school in line with its objectives.
Each of the four quarters carries an appropriate motive
- Top right-hand corner: The early appearance of the SUN in the East: This depicts “Make hay while the sun shines”
- Top left-hand quarter: A crossed pen and torch light on an open book: this depicts “the pen is mightier than the sword”
- The bottom left-hand quarter: A crossed pick axe and cutlass: This depicts “Dignity in labour”
- The bottom left hand quarter: The oil palm tree is a wonder plant which symbolizes usefulness and productivity (Labone Senior High School students should therefore be productive and useful in all aspects of life, wherever they find themselves)
The uniform of the school was designed to be in tandem with the colours the school represents.
