O'Reilly SHS Headmistress directed to step aside amidst unauthorized money collection probe
The headmistress of O'Reilly Senior High School (SHS), Nadia Lartechoe Annan, has been directed to step aside pending an investigation into the unauthorized collection of money during the admission process.
The directive, issued in a letter dated December 6, 2023, cites a violation of the school's Code of Conduct.
The letter, signed by Mr. Stephen Abamfo, Acting Director of Education for the Greater Accra Region, stated, "It has come to the notice of Management, the Collection of Unauthorized Monies at O'Reilly Senior High School as part of the admission process. Based on the above and as the Code of Conduct stipulates, you are to step aside for investigation to be conducted."
Ms. Annan has been instructed to hand over all school property to the Municipal Director of Education, Ledzokuku, who will assume oversight responsibility during her absence.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has been actively addressing cases of unauthorized fees and collections within the education sector.
This latest development at O'Reilly Senior High School adds to a series of actions taken by the GES to ensure compliance with established guidelines and regulations in the admission process of SHS. Similarly, the Headmistress of Ghana Senior High School (GHANASS) in Koforidua, Patience Naki Mensah, has been interdicted by the Ghana Education Service (GES) on allegations of selling unauthorized items to Form One students.
