Disobedient students would be sacked - Headmaster

Listen to article

Agona Nsaba, April 10, GNA - The Assistant Headmaster of the Nsaba Presbyterian Secondary School, Mr Vincent Arhin-Hayford, has warned that the authorities of the school would not hesitate to dismiss students especially girls who put on artificial fingers nails.

He said the school would not countenance any form of indiscipline that could jeopardise academic performance and bring the name of the institution into disrepute.

Speaking at the Annual General meeting of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at Agona Nsaba, Mr Arhin-Hayford appealed to the parents to advise their children especially the girls who wore short skirts instead of the prescribed one to discourage them from the practice.

He said the school was Church institution and stated that the authorities would continue to apply the rules and regulations of the Basle Missionaries to instil discipline into the students. The Assistant Headmaster regretted that some students went home without the consent of the school authorities and said some of the parents also refused to cross check from the school administration to ascertain the truth whether they sort permission or not.

He pointed out that some students took advantage of the practice to engage in social vices, which affected academic standards. Mr Arhin-Hayford warned that students who failed in subjects in class text would not be promoted to the next class and appealed to the parents to buy books and learning materials for their children to enable them to study hard to get better grades.

Mr Arhin-Hayford appealed to the Government, Non governmental organisations, Agona District Assembly and citizens of the area to help the school to purchase an electricity transformer, which would cost 100.8 million cedis.

He said the purchase of the new transformer would stimulate the low voltage that had made it impossible for the students to study in the evening and early in the morning.

The Assistant Headmaster appealed to the Ghana Education Service to give approval for the appointment of tutors who had applied to teach at the school, adding that, some of them had taught for six months and had not received their salaries.
