Students of Kumasi Technical Institute have apologized to the Ghana Education Service and school authorities for ‘bad behavior’ over an intended demonstration.

Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei- Mensah, and GES officials made a swift intervention  as security was deployed to halt the planned action on Friday.

It was in protest of management decision to have final year students write their examination in the dining hall instead of the classroom.

But Student Representative Council President, Samuel Opoku Adjei, led a delegation to present the apology letter to Ashanti Regional Director of Education, Mary Owusu Akyaw.

In a sudden show of remorse and, perhaps, love for the school, the students preceded the apology with singing the school’s anthem.

K.T.I. students who have over the years been noted for violence have hardly been seen in such an apologetic demeanour.

Master Adjei Opoku who led the delegation explained,  “We are here to apologies what happened yesterday and this apology letter we have taken it to the Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei Mensah, Regional Director of Education and also to our principal”.

The SRC president further apologized.

“We the part-time (level four) students of Kumasi Technical Institute render unqualified apology for our bad behavior towards the school authorities.

“We deeply regret our actions and humbly plead with the institutes’ authorities to kindly forgive us,” he added.

The students have regretted their actions explaining the unsuccessful vigil was sparked by miscommunication between school authorities and students.

“We promise to be of good behavior and that if any student misbehaves again that person should be dealt with the school regulations”.
