Stakeholders of Konongo Odumase Senior High School are to meet on Saturday to determine the fate of students whose demonstration against the school’s authorities led to its closure.
The meeting, according to the chairman of Board of Governors of the school, Dr Yaw Amakye, would discuss among other things, the next line of action following threats by the students to burn down the school.
Among those expected to attend the meeting are staff and management of the school, parents, representatives of the Ghana Education Service and traditional authorities. Members of the Board of Governors of the school last Monday held an emergency meeting to agree on the Saturday’s stakeholders’ convocation.
On November 25 and November 26, 2016 respectively, irate students of KOSS embarked on two demonstrations to protest against the transfer of 10 teachers for their alleged involvement in the planning of an earlier demonstration.
The students allegedly threatened to burn down the school if the transfer of the 10 teachers were not reversed. Subsequently, the board shut down the school for fear of destruction of property and possibly loss of lives.
