When school commenced in September 2000, one of the three classrooms was used for primary one, the other used as a temporary library and the third as the teachers’ common room. The first class one primary teacher was Mr. Albert Insiful. Management adopted the concept of adding on one class per year (from primary one to six) in order to be able to master the problems associated with each class. The very first Primary class one, started with twenty six children, all coming from the pre-school department. As the original building was originally designed as a house and not a school, continual redesigning, breaking, re-building and actual construction of new buildings was necessary as the school population grew, in order to produce what we now have. All the building projects were managed and funded by Mr. Christian B.Y. Ahiabor, devoted husband as well as a director of the school.
As student travelled from as far as Kasoa, Achimota and Kwashieman and its environs, double streams for each class were implemented because management believes in the concept of small class sizes. Our class sizes do not therefore exceed thirty children because of the benefits that each child would be afforded.
The next big challenge facing us was where to house the Junior High School in September 2006 as all available space in the nursery and primary departments were now occupied. The only available space was on a plot approximately 250 meters from the school. The building project of the J.H.S. department commenced in January 2005. By September 2006 when the Junior High School was to commence, the building was not completed and therefore with the approval of the CES (as they had been monitory the building progress) the first batch of JHS Form one started out in one of the vacant primary class rooms.
The JHS Form 1 students remained in the primary department for the first year. By August 2007 the J.H.S department was completed, duly furnished and dedicated by Rev. Dr. Fred Deegbe at the annual speech and prize giving celebration.
In September 2007, forms one and two moved to the new building commonly called Afropa House. The facility consisted of six class rooms, a science laboratory, I.CT. laboratory, a teacher’s rest room, a workshop room for B.D.T., a kitchen, a multi-purpose assembly hall cum dining room and adequate number of wash rooms.
There were three permanent JHS teachers on location with the children namely; Mr. Mohammed Yahaya (Supervisor/Science). Mr. Philip Hama (R.M.E./Social Studies) and Mr. James Boadu (Mathematics). Other subject teachers were shuffled from the primary department.
The Name Sunflower School was adopted and all the other registers of the school fell under this umbrella name. The name was registered with the Ghana Education Service on 29th September, 2006 once the Junior High School was approved as a fully-fledged basic school comprising preschool, primary and Junior High School departments.
