The Ghana Education Service (GES) has referred the matter of the dismissed students of the Chiana Senior High School (SHS) to the school’s Disciplinary Committee following President Akufo-Addo’s intervention.

In a statement signed by its Head, Public Relations Unit Cassandra Twum Ampofo, the GES noted that: “The affected students were dismissed based on a recommendation by the school’s Disciplinary Committee.

“Thus Management has referred the matter to the school’s Disciplinary Committee to explore alternative sanctions other than dismissal.”

“In the meantime, the affected students are to report to the Headmistress of the school for further directions,” the statement added.
