Any Riotous Student Who Damages School Property wwill be Sacked from the Center – GES Warns

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has served a warning to the riotous school children.

Final-year students of Bright Senior High School (SHS), a private school at Kukurantumi in the Abuakwa North Municipality in the Eastern Region, went on the rampage and beat an external invigilator in the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

According to a report, the students got infuriated after the external invigilator resisted their attempts to engage in malpractices.

WAEC has since relocated the examination centre of Bright Senior High School (SHS) to Ofori Panin Senior High School at Kukurantumi in the Eastern Region effective from August 8, 2020 to safeguard the lives of examination officials assigned to school.

Director-General of GES, Professor Kwesi Opoku Amakwa, speaking on UTV’s “Adekye Nsroma” appealed to all students to use the right channel to resolve their grievances and not resort to violence.

Ghana Education Service in agreement with WAEC is in charge of examination preparation and selecting of centres so far as the exam is concernEd in the country. After registration, GES students become the candidate of WAEC, hence every decision of the exam is sorely done by WAEC and not GES. We cannot, therefore, prevent any student from writing WEAC exam,” he said.

Professor Opoku Amakwa further added that any student who damages school properties “will be sacked from the centre but not from writing the exams; only that they will have to find a new registration centre to write the exam”.
