The Headmaster of the Eastern-Region-based St. Peter’s Senior Secondary School, (PERSCO) has set up a state of the art barbering salon on the school campus for students with an unapproved haircut to get a clean shave.
St. Peters decision to set up the barbering shop comes after Achimota School denied two Rastafarian students admission and also rejected a directive from the Ghana Education Service to admit the dreadlocked students.
The Global President of St. Peters Old Boys Association in a statement copied to Educationweb.com.gh said his alma mater establishment of the barbering salon forms part of the school’s effort to instil discipline on campus.
“What is clear is that the current headmaster has instilled much stronger discipline, including, among others, a barbering salon in the school where students with non-approved hairstyles including dreads are converted into clean-shaven student haircuts”, Ben Afrifa stated in the statement.
He has consequently urged old and current students of St. Peter’s School to support the PERSCO Management to enforce the appropriate rules and regulations to ensure maximum discipline on the school campus.
