The management of Archbishop Porter Girls Senior High School, has debunked reports that some of its students had been involved in a fatal accident on their way to the school from the Christmas break.
Rumours widely circulated on social media on Monday, suggesting the students died when a vehicle they were aboard collided with another vehicle at Gomoa Adam junction in the Central Region.
But the Assistant Headmistress, in charge of Administration of the school, Charlotte Asiedu Musa, who spoke to Citi News off record, said although there was an accident on that stretch on Monday, none of its students were involved. She therefore called on parents and guardians of students of the school to remain calm as their wards were safe.
Meanwhile, the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) has denied media reports that some students of the Archbishop Porter Girls’ Senior High School in Takoradi were Monday involved in an accident on the Gomoa Adam junction near Apam in the Central Region.
According to the Central Regional Coordinator of the NRSC, Mr Stephen Anokye, no student of the school was in any of the cars involved in the accident.
