Inthe seminary was moved from Asokore-Mampong to Abuakwa, leaving the secondary school at its present location, Asokore-Mampong.

Are you going to go with friends? Will your crush ask you in some elaborate gesture? And what are you going to wear? But have you ever stopped to think about what this whole tradition is about? When was the first homecoming and what's the story behind the big game and the quirky traditions like homecoming king and queen? Most importantly, what does homecoming even mean? Every high school has their own homecoming traditions and depending on where you live and what school you go to, homecoming can mean a lot of different things.
Often, a homecoming court is crowned, with the highly coveted homecoming king and queen reigning over their kingdom for a year or maybe until a prom king and queen come along.

Homecoming proposals have become more elaborate, mimicking the creative signs, cute treasure hunts and yummy treats that now seem to come with every promposal.
First, the obvious difference. The two dances come at different times of the year. While prom often marks the beginning of spring and the end of the school year, homecoming, which often takes place in September or October, doubles as a kind of welcome back to school.

At most schools, prom is open only to seniors and sometimes juniors, but homecoming is for all, even the underclassmen, meaning you can start enjoying the festivities as a freshman. Finally, homecoming can be a lot more casual than prom. Some schools have a more casual dress code for their homecoming dances, where jean shorts and a cute top will suffice, while others require a dress or suit for the occasion.
Even then, the dresses are usually short, compared to the gowns some girls will rock for their big prom night.
