- 19 students of the New Juaben Senior High School have been punished for indisciplined behaviour
- Many of the 19 are reported to have participated in a 'wee' smoking party
- While some have been suspended, others have been expelled from the boarding house
Authorities of the New Juaben Senior High School (NJUASCO) in Koforidua in the Eastern Region have sanctioned 19 students for breaching the school's disciplinary regulations.
According to reports, most of the affected students were punished for engaging in a 'marijuana (ganja) party' which led to the hospitalization of one student.
While some of the students received suspensions, others were expelled from the school's boarding house.
The affected students included final year students who were supposed to be preparing for their West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The final year students, Starr FM reports, have been only allowed to partake in the ongoing WASSCE after some parents lobbied school authorities.
Starr News sources say some of the affected students were only allowed to partake in the ongoing WASSCE after their influential parents lobbied the school authorities.
Had it not been the fact the school's authorities failed to get any exhibits of the alleged marijuana used for the party, the students would been incriminated and sent to the police.
