Furthermore, the Secretary of CHRIMOSA ’93, Mrs. Gifty Dela Ahiawor, nee Gasper encouraged the students to put the handballs to good use, because sports and games are not mere physical activities. “They play a significant role in making people healthy, confident, adaptable, alert, happy and relaxed.”
