Day/Speech and Price Giving Day
Each year in March a Speech and Price Giving Day and a Founder's Day is held in
the school. The event brings together students, parents, teachers,
administrators and old boys. It is an event that is traditionally sponsored by
Old Boys who left the school exactly 25 years ago. Among others, the Old Boys
usually embark on a major or minor project such as buying equipment for the
school, or putting up a structure or rehabilitating some of the existing
structures in the school. As an example, in 2004, the 1979 Year Group donated
the current school gate at the Cape Coast - Takoradi by-pass road. The Speech
Day Event also recognizes outstanding students within the past academic year.
The Founder's Day Event is usually held a day after the
Speech Day, on a Sunday - this involves a church service in hounour of the
school founder which is followed by the traditional cement party (a meal of
'soakings' - garri with sugar and milk).
Santaclausians Award Night
The awards night is organized to give the students a
break and also recognize the various talents that the boys bring to the school -
It is said that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. This event
recognises students for the role they played in helping the school during their
3 year stay in the college. It is organized with the help of the entertainment
prefect, the entertainment committee and the administration. Awards are given to
the hard working prefects, the neatest boy, the best dancer, the best rapper
Philip Quaque Remembrance Day
As an Anglican Institution of which Philip Quaque was an
old student, a cross section of students in Quaque house (house named after Rev.
Quaque), the Head Prefect, Chapel Prefect, the Quaque House master and the Cadet
corps as well as students and teachers of Academy of Christ the King usually
attend the memorial and wreath laying ceremony of the late Rev. Philip Quaque at
the Cape Coast Castle.
Observed in November, a Remembrance Day service is held
throughout the country. In Cape Coast, the Adisadel Cadet Corps as well as cadet
corps from other schools and officers and men of the security services in Cape
Coast attend the Remembrance Day service at the Cape Coast Castle.
St. Nicholas Day
Observed In December, the school holds a mass for St.
Nicholas who is the patron and saint of Adisadel College and a saint of the
Anglican Church. The mass is officiated by the college Chaplain. Sermons usually
reiterate how important it is for all students to take a cue from the exemplary
life of St. Nicholas so that they could also be remembered for their good deeds.
