The Headmaster of St. Thomas Senior High Technical School in Asamankese in the Eastern Region has warned the school will dismiss any student who fails end of term promotional examination in order to decongest classrooms for beneficiaries for the upcoming Free Senior High School.
According to William Ansah, the school has limited classrooms to accommodate huge population and will therefore not allow any student who fails exams to be repeated, but sacked to create space for the new government education policy.
The Headmaster issued this warning while speaking at a Parents Teacher Association meeting in the School.
He urged parents to encouraged their wards to study hard and pass their exams to avoid dismissals.
” Third term Examination is about to begin, therefore, parents must pay their School fees arrears urgently, otherwise, I will sack those who owe me and that will prevent them from the examination.
“Those of you whose wards are in form one listen attentively, this year government has announced to begin the free SHS next term, therefore, any student who will be placed in my school as a beneficiary of the free SHS, I have no option to deny him or her. If the Computer place them here, I as headmaster, must admit them, therefore, I won’t allow any form one or form two student to be repeated, the person will just end it”.
Government will commence its free senior high school policy in September this year.
