Final year students of the Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School at Kumawu in the Ashanti Region on Monday threatened to boycott the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
This was after the students accused their school authorities of being too strict during the supervision of their first paper.
While demanding that the headmaster leaves the examination hall, they also alleged that Mr. Francis Awuah has been manhandling some students and teachers during the exams.
According to them, the headmaster had slapped a teacher and also abused other students who were sitting for the examination.
Some students after the first part of the Integrated Science paper, marched to the office of the District Chief Executive, Samuel Addai Agyekum to report their headmaster’s misbehaviour.
It took the intervention of both political and traditional authorities to restore calm and get the students to rescind their decision. The confusion also caused the writing of the second part of the paper to delay.
Others who remained on campus refused to take food served at the dining hall. They also toppled furniture and food served in protest against their headmaster. The police were subsequently brought in to restore calm and order.
Now, The BBC Ghana’s intelligent unit led by Kofi Anokye PhD has made thorough grounds check and per the findings, some of the finalists especially the boys have vowed to pay back their heartless headmaster in his own coins.
That is to say, they will descend heavily on him after their last paper because the headmaster is trying his possible best to make them fail the WASSCE reason why he (Mr. Francis Awua) has been too strict with invigilation.
So, The BBC Ghana is taking this opportunity to send a word of caution to the incumbent headmaster of Tweneboah Kodua Senior High School to be very vigilant else doom awaits him right after the last WASSCE paper.
