The Authorities at Ejisuman Senior High School, in the Ashanti region, have expelled seven female students from the school’s boarding facility after they allegedly posted a video on social media that contained sexual innuendos.

According to the authorities, the video, which has gone viral, has dented the image of the school.

A letter announcing the sanctions against the students, and addressed to the Ashanti Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service, stated: “the management of the school at a meeting with the affected students and their parents arrived at that decision.”

The seven, who are all final year students, have been accused of using a mobile phone – which is prohibited in basic and high schools – “to upload a video on social media where unprintable words that border on sex were spewed out.”

The school’s management also expressed concern about the use of unauthorised gadgets while in school.

Deter others

The sanction, which took effect on February 6 2020, according to the school authorities, was to serve as a deterrent to other students.

“The behaviour of these students, management feels should not be allowed to perpetuate, hence this action,” the letter added.

Although the school’s management is yet to speak after issuing the statement, the Ashanti Regional Student Representative Council Coordinator, Raphael Sarkodie, has called for intensified guidance and counselling in senior high schools.
