The headmaster and Senior Housemaster of GHANASCO have been directed by Ghana Education Service to step aside for investigation.

Recently the Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr Clement Apaak, shared a video alleged to be a shot of a toilet facility of Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale turned into a sleeping place for students.

The said video showed student mattresses, chop boxes, bags and other student materials in the toilet compartment of a washroom.

Some of the materials and the students could also be seen in the hallway of the washroom.

There has been a public uproar about the situation. Students are to learn and grow in a conducive environment and Ghanaians have expressed their grievances fairly on the matter questioning the priorities of the government and the role of the old students in the school.

Following this development, Ghana Education Service has issued a statement directing the headmaster and the senior housemaster of GHANASCO to step aside to allow for further investigations into the matter by the Regional Director of Education and report back in two weeks.

According to GES, the situation is disturbing and unfortunate, especially when the records available to them indicate that out of the 1790 vacancies declared by the school, only 1467 students have enrolled. Therefore, the school is expected to have excess capacity to even accommodate extra 300 students.

Management has assured all stakeholders and the general public that it will continue to ensure that the students enrolled in their care are in a safe school environment.
