A video circulating on social media, shared by Ghanaian X page, EDHUB, depicts the heartwarming scene where teachers utilize tomato paste containers and gallons as makeshift drums to train the students for the significant event.

The school's dire financial situation has left them unable to procure traditional drums for the march, prompting the resourceful teachers to improvise with whatever materials were available.

Independence Day holds profound significance for Ghanaians as it commemorates the country's liberation from colonial rule on March 6, 1957. The annual celebration is marked by various activities, including spirited marches by schools, institutions, and the public, symbolizing freedom and national pride.
