Three final year students of Mount Sinai Senior High School in Akropong -Akuapem in the Eastern Region have been expelled for sneaking mobile phone into school.
One of the students concealed a mobile phone to school and connived with the other students to hide it in a trunk when school authorities were investigating the issue.
The students, however, denied knowledge of the mobile phone when interrogated until it was fished out.
The students were immediately handed indefinite expulsion.
Mother of one of the students told Starr News she went to the school to plead for extenuation of the punishment given that the students have limited period to complete school. However, she said, authorities of the school say it would be communicated whenever the school reviews and mitigates the punishment.
The Headmaster of the School, Wise Dunu, confirmed the expulsion but said he cannot speak to it until he is given permission by the Municipal Education Director.
Final year Senior High School (SHS 3) students together with SHS 2 Gold Track students resumed academic exercise on 22nd June 2020 to complete the academic calendar.
The Education Minister Mathew Opoku Prempeh revealed that parents and guardians are not allowed to visit their children in school.
This is to ensure that children who are being protected in the various Senior High Schools from the COVID-19 are not allowed to come into contact with parents who may have contracted the virus.
