St. Johns SHS headmaster apologises to ‘afro hair’ students


Authorities of the St Johns Grammar Senior High School in Accra have apologised to the five final year students of the school who were prevented from partaking in the ongoing WASCE on Tuesday because they were carrying bushy hairs.

The internal supervisor of the school, Mr Gyedu, reportedly sacked the students from the exams hall when they were just about writing the Christian Religious Studies (CRS) paper.

“Mr Gyedu didn’t allow the five of us to write the CRS paper even though we pleaded with him. He said we were carrying bushy hair.

“Now our parents are here to probe the matter but they are now saying that they will register us for the Nov-Dec exams,” one of the aggrieved students told Starr News on condition of anonymity.

The Ghana Education Service is currently investigating the matter.

Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM Thursday, the headmaster of the school Emmanuel Ofoe Fiemawkle said they are sorry for their attitude towards the students.

Meanwhile, the GES has instructed the school authorities to register the students for the Nov-Dec exams.
