The management of Ghana Education Service (GES) have just dropped immediate release about the rumours that pops up on GHANASCO schools toilet turned into accomodation for students.
The release reads below;
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RE: GHANASCO TOILETS TURNED INTO ACCOMMODATION FOR STUDENTS
The attention of the Management of Ghana Education Service has been drawn to a viral video being circulated on social media showing some students of Ghana Senior High School, Tamale, using toilet cubicles as dormitories.
This is very disturbing and unfortunate especially when 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. It is thus, unacceptable to have students sleep in such a place.
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.
Management wishes to assure al our stakeholders and the general public that it will continue to ensure that the students entrusted in oUr care operate in a safe school environment.
