Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) says it has reversed the earlier position on the punishment meted out to the Eight Students of the Chiana Senior High School (SHS) following an intervention by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Eight students of the school were dismissed for using some unprintable words against the President in a viral video in 2022 following the hardships in the country.
In a statement released on January 13, 2023, the GES said the matter had been referred to the school’s Disciplinary Committee to explore alternative sanctions other than dismissal.
“Management has referred the matter to the school’s Disciplinary Committee to explore alternative sanctions other than dismissal. In the meantime, the affected students are to report to the Headmistress of the School for further directions. Management acknowledges the interest of stakeholders in ensuring that these students are reformed in the best possible way,” the statement said.
The Statement was signed by the Head of Public Relations Unit, Cassandra Twum Ampofo.
It thanked all stakeholders for their interest and directed the students to report to the HeadMistress for further action.
