13 SHS students de-boardinized

 

Thirteen (13) students (both sexes) of Oti Boateng Senior High School in the Eastern Region have been de-boardinised by management for breaching school regulations.

Two were deboardinized over theft, five sneaked out of school without exeat for days, six other-first year students scaled over school wall at night to town.

According to the Headmaster, John Hawkson Arthur, the said students risk being sacked if they flout a bond they had signed to be of good behaviour according to management.

Many parents have complained over theft cases in both boys and girls dormitories with their wards being victims.

They lamented that their roommates often stole their children’s monies, provisions, and even panties from their chop boxes.

One of the angry parents at a PTA meeting Saturday threatened to invoke curse on any student who had stolen his ward items.

The boys dormitory which was gutted by fire in January 19,2016 has been abandoned. The structure, which was severely burnt, has become a death trap to teachers, students and staff of the school.

Despite assurance by government to reconstruct the affected block, nothing has been done almost two years after the incident.

The school with current population of little over 2000 is grappling with infrastructural challenges creating congestion in the classrooms and dormitories.

The school has no dinning hall, assembly hall and kitchen. Meals are prepared under a shed and eaten under a makeshift shed.

Attempt by the leadership of PTA to levy parents for monthly payment of a corn miller and a nurse were rejected by the parents having been levied Ghc20 each for rehabilitation and reconstruction of a broken section of the school wall.
