The headmistress of O’Reilly Senior High School (SHS), Nadia Lartechoe Annan, has been directed to step aside pending an investigation into the unauthorized collection of money during the admission process.

The directive, issued in a letter dated December 6, 2023, cites a violation of the school’s Code of Conduct.

The letter, signed by Mr. Stephen Abamfo, Acting Director of Education for the Greater Accra Region, stated, “It has come to the notice of Management, the Collection of Unauthorized Monies at O’Reilly Senior High School as part of the admission process. Based on the above and as the Code of Conduct stipulates, you are to step aside for investigation to be conducted.”

Ms. Annan has been instructed to hand over all school property to the Municipal Director of Education, Ledzokuku, who will assume oversight responsibility during her absence.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has been actively addressing cases of unauthorized fees and collections within the education sector.

This latest development at O’Reilly Senior High School adds to a series of actions taken by the GES to ensure compliance with established guidelines and regulations in the admission process of SHS. Similarly, the Headmistress of Ghana Senior High School (GHANASS) in Koforidua, Patience Naki Mensah, has been interdicted by the Ghana Education Service (GES) on allegations of selling unauthorized items to Form One students.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has taken a decisive step by instructing two Senior High School heads to step aside as it initiates investigations into allegations of a breach of their code of conduct.

 

The Head of Public Relations at GES, Cassandra Twum Ampofo clarified the rationale behind the decision, emphasising the misconduct exhibited by the two headmistresses.

She decried the imposition of such charges on first-year students, stating that it is unwarranted and contrary to established procedures.

Madam Ampofo highlighted the severity of the situation, pointing out that students who are unable to meet these unexpected financial demands may be compelled to return home, disrupting their preparedness for admission.

She underscored the need for a thorough investigation to ensure accountability and prevent a recurrence of such practices in the future.
