The Management of Achimota Preparatory and Junior High School (APS), teachers and some parents after a court ruled for the Ghana Education Service to take control of the school Wednesday petitioned the Speaker of Parliament, Alban S.K. Bagbin.
Authorities of the Achimota basic school in their petition sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh has asked the Speaker to help them find an amicable solution to attempts to evacuate the school from its current location and to change their school name by the Ghana Education Service and the Ministry of Education.
Responding to their plea, Rt. Hon. Speaker, Alban S.K. Bagbin assured them the matter will be presented on the floor of parliament for further discussion.
It would be recalled that the Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) not long ago locked up the school after a court ruled for them to take control of the school building.
According to Education Service, the land and building being occupied by the Achimota Preparatory School (APS) formed part of Achimota Senior High School (SHS) Land per the Achimota School Ordinance No. 7 & 1948.
