The importance of unity cannot be overemphasized because unity is strength. The quest for a united students’ front gave birth to the Ada College of Education Students’ Representative Council (S.R.C.). As a platform for the representation of students’ views, and to champion their course, the SRC became beckon of hope of trainees and also a partner in the development of the College.
The motto of S.R.C. is “Solving Our Problems.”
S.R.C as the highest student body is democratic, non-partisan, no-tribal, non-religious and independent in its dealings with both students and other stakeholders
Students admitted into the College automatically become members of the Association, and therefore all trainees are eligible to participate in any activity of the S.R.C. currently, membership of the Association stands at Eight Hundred Ninety-Nine (899) trainees.
ADACOE SRC exists to:
1. champion the course of trainees in the College.
2. seek the welfare of students, and promote their rights and responsibilities.
3. promote co-operation, understanding and friendship among students of the College, and other student bodies in Ghana and abroad, so far as the aims and objectives of such bodies conform to the S.R.C.
4. promote discipline and high academic performance among students.
5. encourage social programmes among teacher trainees.
6. assist the authorities of the College to develop and help find solutions to problems as and when they arise.
Over the years, the eminent ADACOE SRC has achieved a lot in academics, assisting in the College’s physical development, and supporting trainees in diverse ways. We have won the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG), Eastern- Greater Accra (EGA) Sector`s famous Quiz and Debate Competition for five (5) consecutive times in debates session, and won the first price of the quiz for the just ended competition, 2020.

In terms of development, the SRC has contributed its quota to develop our prestigious College. The SRC has constructed pavement around the classroom blocks, constructed multi-purpose sports complex, tiled bath houses, and provided resting places (lovers’ benches). We also purchased SRC bus for the use of both the students and College Management. Currently, the S.R.C. is building its luxurious Secretariat.
