Final year students of Accra Girls demonstrate over “harsh” treatments from school authorities

Students of the Accra Girls Senior High School have lamented over the poor state of treatments meted out on them on campus after resuming school.

According to them, since the President announced that the final year and Gold Track SHS2 students should go back to school, the school authorities have been mistreating them by not allowing them to even go out to buy food, neither will a parent visit their children on campus.

This has caused serious demonstrations on the Accra Girls campus.

A student alleged that the Housemistress of the school actually poured a meal belonging to a student away.

It was also alleged that mobile phones that were used by students to call their parents for money and food were also seized by the school authorities, putting students in an uncomfortable position, to study.

There are no food vendors in the school and we cannot buy food from outside, the boarding house food is not enough so we call our parents to send food to us through our security men.

“You just write your wards name on the food container and bring it to the school, a student’s food was delivered but the security man was not allowed to give it to the students”, the student said.

According to the students, the housemistress also searches their bodies looking for mobile phones that they use to call their parents.

She touches our breasts and private parts just in search of a phone and this is not good”, the student added.

They should stop treating us like animals, the food they give us is not enough, they take our phones and break them”, the students lamented.

The students are however calling on the Ministry of Education for reforms and changes to help them enjoy their stay on campus.

They also urged the government to come to their aid and call the school authorities to order.

We were pleading, please come to our aid, we are dying, the security men are corrupt, they take money from parents before attending to their children”, a student stressed.

However, sources say soldiers have besieged the school to restore calm.
