RE:  TOILETS TURNED INTO ACCOMMODATION FOR STUDENTS

The attention of the Management of Ghana Education Service has been drawn to a viral video being circulated on social media showing some students of Ghana Senior High School, Tamale, using toilet cubicles as dormitories.

This is very disturbing and unfortunate especially when records available to us indicate that, out of the 1790 vacancies declared by the school, only 1467 students have enrolled. The school is expected to have excess capacity to even house extra 300 students. It is thus, unacceptable to have students sleep in such a place.

The Headmaster and the Senior Housemaster have been directed to step aside to allow for further investigations into the matter by the Regional Director of Education and report back in two weeks.

Management wishes to assure all our stakeholders and the general public that it will continue to ensure that the students entrusted in our care operate in a safe school environment.

Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of the ministry, Kwasi Kwarteng, has said that the government remains committed to resolving all the challenges faced by SHS across the country.

“… we take full responsibility and assure all Ghanaians that, wherever there are challenges, we’ll go in and resolve them,” he said.

The PRO, however, posited that the infrastructure challenge is caused by schools indicating that they have vacant facilities while they have not.

“I’m still wondering why you could declare that you could take, for instance, 500 boarding students while you know very well that there are no spaces or beds for them,” he added.

Students are allowed to carry anything at all to the school cx no rules n regulations are working within schools again. So am not surprised cx some of dm have mini drinking spots.
