Ghana Education Service (GES) says it is investigating a video on social media in which some students at Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale, are using toilet cubicles as dormitories.
According to a statement issued dated April 16, the Regional Director of Education has asked both the head and senior housemaster to step aside for a thorough investigation.
“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,” the statement signed by the Head of the Public Relations Unit, Cassandra Twum Ampofo disclosed.
Furthermore, the statement revealed that the school could accommodate an additional 300 students since records indicated that students enrolled in the school were fewer than the vacancies available.
“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,” the release stated.
The Service described the situation as ‘disturbing’ and ‘unfortunate.’
However, GES assured the populace that it will ensure students entrusted to their care have a safe school environment.
