Unity on the Field: Drobo Senior High School



Amidst the vibrant hues of early morning sunlight, laughter echoed across the Drobo Senior High School Park on Thursday, 11th April 2024. It was a day of celebration, not just for the holiday, but for the unity that transcended religious and societal boundaries through the language of football.

Organized by the Jaman South Municipal Assembly, the football gala was a testament to the power of sports in fostering camaraderie and socialization. At 8:00 am sharp, teams from various walks of life gathered on the green turf, ready to showcase their skills and spirit.

Amidst the fervor of the matches, the presence of the Jaman South Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon Andrews Bediako and Member of Parliament (MP), Hon. Williams Okofo-Dateh lent an air of significance to the occasion. Their attendance underscored the importance of community engagement and celebration, fostering a sense of belonging among the participants and spectators alike.

The lineup was as diverse as the community itself. There was the formidable Jaman South Municipal Assembly Team, representing local governance with pride. The DROSEC Teachers’ Team brought the wisdom of educators to the field, while St. Mary’s Hospital Team carried the healing touch of healthcare professionals. The Media Team added a touch of journalistic flair to the competition.


But beyond these distinctions, there was something special about this event. It wasn't just about winning or losing; it was about coming together as one community, regardless of faith or profession.

The opening match set the tone for the day as the Muslims team faced off against the Christian team. With passion and determination, both sides showcased their skills, but in the end, it was the Muslims team who emerged victorious. Yet, the outcome was not measured in goals alone. It was a testament to the respect and mutual understanding shared between the players, a reminder that differences need not divide.

As the morning progressed, the focus shifted to the broader tournament involving all the teams. DROSEC Teachers’ Team exhibited tactical brilliance to clinch the top spot, showcasing that wisdom and experience could conquer the field. St. Mary’s Hospital Team followed closely behind, their teamwork and resilience earning them a well-deserved second place. The Media Team displayed their agility and adaptability, securing the third spot, while the Assembly Team, though placing fourth, rejoiced in the opportunity to connect with the community they served.


Amidst the cheers and applause, it became evident that this event was more than just a football gala. It was a celebration of unity, where people from all walks of life came together to share in the joy of sport and fellowship. Regardless of background or belief, they stood side by side, united in their love for the game and their community.

As the sun began its descent, casting a golden glow over the park, the echoes of laughter and cheers lingered in the air. For in that moment, on that Thursday morning in April, the Drobo Senior High School Park became more than just a football field. It became a symbol of hope, harmony, and the enduring power of unity.


There is a troublesome humor some men have, that if they may not lead, they will not follow; but had rather a thing were never done, than not done their own way, tho’ other ways very desirable.
