Parents of the two Rastafarians who were earlier denied admission to Achimota School say they need a formal apology from the administration of the school to the students.
According to them, they school dimmed the morale of the students and there is therefore the need to apologize to them and assure them that they will not be vindictive.
Also, the parents believe that there is supposed to be some form of a special welcome for the students in order for them to feel at home at the school of their choice.
“We expect an official letter from the school apologizing to us for denying our children admission. Their denial dimed the morale of the children. We expect that there is a special apology to the children by the school welcoming them when we go there,” one of the parents said.
The parents said even though their wards have been allowed admission into the Achimota School, they will pursue the case to the latter because same could be repeated in the future.
“We need to pursue this not just for our children but for other children too because although our children have been admitted, this could happen to other children in the future,” one of the parents said.
The Ghana Education Service after news went viral that the two have been denied admission ordered the Achimota School to admit the students.
The Service indicated that what the students should do is just totie their hair so it does not become a nuisance.
