Final year students of the Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School in the Ashanti Region have rendered an unqualified apology to school authorities and government following a protest on campus.
The riot which resulted in the destruction of properties was allegedly caused by the strict supervision of the headteacher of the school, during the writing of the WASSCE Integrated Science paper.
Mr. John Asante had also been accused of manhandling some students and teachers during the exams.
In a video circulating on social media, the students had threatened to boycott the exams if their headteacher is not removed from the examination hall.
While the boys marched to the office of the District Chief Executive (DCE), the girls who stayed on campus refused to take food served at the dining hall.
The police were subsequently called in to restore calm as the protest nearly halted the writing of Paper 2 of the Integrated Science exam.
But in a new video that has gone viral, some students could be seen on their knees while a male colleague apologises for their behaviour which has been widely condemned.
“On behalf of the entire students, I want to apologise first to the entire teaching staff, non-teaching staff, assistant headmaster, District Chief Executive, District Police Commander, Education Directorate and our dear headmaster. We are very sorry,” he said.
