HISTORY & DEVELOPMENT OF MQPCSCHOOL
Mary Queen of Peace Catholic School is the realization of a dream that began in the early 1980’s when the late Archbishop John Kodwo Amissah was approached by parents asking for a school that would provide quality Catholic education for the people who lived in Cape Coast.
In 1989, the School Sisters of Notre Dame entered the dream with the commitment of 2 Sisters who undertook to administer the school and to teach some classes. Months of preparation during 1990-91 culminated in the school welcoming its first students on 8th October 1991-just 2 weeks after the untimely death of Archbishop Amissah. The Archbishop’s dream had become living reality as seventy 4, 5, and 6 year olds began their education in temporary arrangements in the uncompleted church building of Mary Queen of Peace Parish at 4th Ridge.
