Over 120 students from Adiembra SHS allegedly sacked for breaching Covid-19 protocols

Some 120 students from Adiembra Senior High School in the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly of the Western Region have been sacked by school authority for breaching various Covid-19 protocols.

The students, all boys allegedly left campus without permission and no supervision.

This according to management is a complete breach of laid down restrictions and protocols put in place to ensure safety of students, teaching and non-teaching staff amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But explaining the situation to Adom News’ Lord Tawiah, the stranded students said they had left campus in search of water.

According to them, since school reopened on Monday June 15, students have not had access to potable water, hence the decision to fetch some at a standing pipe located a few metres from campus.

The boys further alleged that female students are being allowed to go outside for water and other necessities and it was the reason why no female was sacked.

Speaking in the local dialect, they urged the media and other authorities to come to their aid.

They also accused management of keeping close to 60 students in one dormitory which is against the directives of President Akufo-Addo.

Standing on the streets with their belongings, the boys asked government officials and interest parties to visit the school since measures alleged to be put in place to curb the spread of the virus are all being breached and disregarded by school authorities and teachers.

They said there was no water to ensure the regular washing of hands under running water which is a safety protocol outlined by the Ministry of Health, Ghana Health Service, and the World Health Organisation
