The action was borne out of what the parents described as unnecessary delay in the admission process which has forced some of them who came from far way to sleep in the school for days.

Speaking to Oman News during a visit to the school, one of the parents said Mrs Asare who could not withstand the insults quickly dashed to the school’s assembly hall and threw all the prospectus away with anger.

Another parent who was unhappy about the situation said he came from Akosombo to the school last Monday to secure admission for his son but was later told to come on Tuesday and as Thursday his son had still not been offered admission.
