Students of St Louis Senior High school in the Ashanti region last night staged a protest over the seeming confusion about their midterm break.
The angry all-female students say they are fed up with the inconsistencies in the Senior High school education calendar. They say the current situation makes it difficult for both teachers and students to plan for their academic work.
During the Monday night protest, students massed up at the headmistress’ residence with the intent to stage their protest on campus over the cancellation of the midterm break.
However, the police were called in by the school authorities thwarting the protest.
According to the Ashanti Regional Police Public relations officer, ASP Godwin Ahianyor, it took the police some time to convince the students to accept that their headmistress had nothing to do with the midterm break cancellation.
He added, “currently calm has returned to the school and the students are going about their normal duties”.
