There was some confusion at the entrance of the Accra Girls Senior High School after some parents were disallowed to see their wards, while others who went in their own cars were allowed.

The mayhem prompted the presence of the Ghana Police Service at the schools’ entrance to manage the situation.

Agitations by the parents came after six students of the school tested positive for COVID-19 barely two weeks after it reopened for final year and SHS 2 gold track students.

Due to that, some parents and guardians besieged the school premises to withdraw their wards from the school.

However, some parents alleged that school authorities were selective as to who can see their wards.

While some parents, who went to the school in commercial transport, stood at the entrance pleading with the authorities to allow them see their children, the “rich folks”, who went in their own cars were allowed in to see and speak to their wards.

One of the parents, a politician, who spoke to the media after he was allowed in without hesitation by the armed security men, said the school authorities made him see his child.

According to Daniel Wilson Torto, who was the 2016 running mate of Jacob Osei Yeboah, the Assistant Headmistress briefed him about the situation at hand and confirmed to him that indeed six of the students had tested positive for the virus.

He also disclosed that the authorities assured him of the safety of his ward and was satisfied after speaking to her.

However, he bemoaned the attitude of the authorities for refusing to address parents at the entrance of the school.

According to him, allowing just a section of parents and guardians to see their wards sparks anger and might trigger chaos.

After hours of standing at the entrance, parents were finally allowed in but were only briefed by the Chairman of the PTA who pleaded with them to go home. They were however not allowed to see their wards.

Due to that some parents insisted on staying at the entrance till they see they see their wards coming out of the classroom to verify if they are okay before they go home.
