Adisadel College re-opens April 14

By myjoyonline

Adisadel College in Cape Coast is to re-open for first and second year students on April 14.

A statement issued on Thursday and signed by the Assistant Headmaster in charge of administration and Secretary to the board, Mr Kwadwo Asiedu-Gyimah, said all Form Three students and their parents were expected to meet the PTA executive at the school's chapel on March 24.

The meeting will discuss issues pertaining to the welfare of the final-year students.

The decisions followed an emergency meeting of the Board of Governors of the college.

The college closed down on March 17 due to students' unrest following the death of a final-year Science student, Abdul Gafaru Abdul Rahman, who jumped to his death on March 16.

The board has also set up a committee of enquiry to investigate the circumstances leading to Rahman's death.

The Board Secretary told the Ghana News Agency that the PTA would also impress upon the parents to "advice their wards" and that the committee would be formally inaugurated on March 26.
