Some final year students of the Yinayin Catholic Senior High School have allegedly torched their school as part of their parting ‘gift.’
It is a usual practice of Ghanaian high school students to leave indelible marks in their school to prove they were once students of the particular school. This tradition birthed the “Was Here Some” craze in high schools.
However, the students of Yinayin Catholic SHS took it to the extreme when after their last paper, set classrooms and dormitories on fire.
In videos that have emerged, the whole classroom block was on fire while some helpless eyewitnesses stood to watch the inferno.
It is reported that none of the students was able to salvage their belongings.
Similarly, the management of St. Martins Senior High School (SHS) intends to withhold the results of its students who are candidates in the on-ongoing West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) following the destruction of some school properties.
The management, in a statement signed by the headmaster, Rev. Fr. Benjamin Opoku Ohene says it is displeased with the form three students for tampering and damaging furniture and fittings in dormitories and classrooms.
The students have therefore been billed to pay for the damages or risk the results of their final examination.
