Teachers and pupils of Ketan Anglican Junior High School in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis, arrived at school to the unpleasant sight of human faeces smeared all over their premises including on doors, windows and padlocks.
A teacher at the school, Matthew Eshun, told the media this was the second time the incident has occurred in three days.
He said the first incident occurred last Friday, February 19, and the second one was on Monday, February 22, adding that both incidents distracted classes.
Mr. Eshun said the Metropolitan Education Directorate of the Ghana Education Service and city authorities were informed the culprits are still unknown and nothing has been done to stop the heinous act.
Meanwhile, Marcarious Zoogah, the Metropolitan Education Supervisor in charge of Teaching and Learning, confirmed the incident saying the circuit supervisor had visited the school while the Education Directorate had held discussions with the authorities of the school, to ascertain the possible reasons behind the action.
He said the Education Directorate would hold another meeting with the School Management Committee to find a lasting solution to the matter.
This canker is is common and has been occurred in several schools. It is often carried out by ‘wee’ smokers who often use the premises of the schools as their hideouts for smoking when the schools are not in session.
