HISTORY OF ST. TERESA’S COLLEGE OF EDUCATION (TERESCO), HOHOE

St. Teresa’s College of Education, an all-female institution which is affiliated to the University of Cape (the University that is entrusted by the Government of Ghana to train Graduate Teachers since, 1962)  was established on 1st November, 1961 with 35 pioneer students drawn from all the then nine (9) regions of Ghana. The College was founded by His Lordship Rt. Rev Anthony Konings of blessed memory who was the Bishop of Keta Diocese.  The College was initially opened as a 2 – Year Certificate ‘B’ College and was called Women’s Training College (WOTRACO). The name was changed to St. Teresa’s College in 1964 when the institution was placed under the patronage of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus and adopted the motto: ‘Live the Truth in Charity’.

The aim of the founder was to establish a Catholic Teacher Training College for Women in the Diocese which would give a sound moral, spiritual and professional education in the true Catholic tradition.  The College inherited the facilities of a Sisters’ Convent which had been moved to Dzelukofe.  Since the piece of land on which the convent was situated was not big enough for the new idea of a Teacher Training College, there was the need for additional plots of land.  The Bishop and the Parish Elders including Rev. Fr. John Beckers consulted the Asiamah Family of Gbi-Bla led by the late Mr. Joseph Achyemde Asiamah who responded favourably to this worthy cause and gave out this piece of land on which we are today.  We are grateful to them.
