Rasta Student Finally Admitted To Achimota School
One of the two dreadlocked boys denied admission into Achimota School, Oheneba Nkrabea, has finally been admitted into the institution on Thursday, June 3, 2021.
It follows an Accra High Court ruling that ordered the management of the school to allow the students to enrol, hence, the student has reported to the school and completed the admission process, today, Thursday, June 3, 2021.
The parents of the boy arrived at the school early this morning and submitted the completed admission forms to the school authorities and Oheneba has begun academic work as he has been assigned a class.
“The process was wonderful. The school was receptive to him. The teachers and other staff members were very positive, and so he is in class right now. I appreciate that very much”, Oheneba’s father, Raswad Nkrabea said.
The mother of Oheneba Nkrabea, Maanaa Myers said she is happy with the welcome her son received today.
“I just got relieved and felt comfortable that he was safe because we also meet a teacher who has been protective of him since the first day because we met him today who ushered him into the classroom. So far I feel okay with the warm reception we received today.”, the mother expressed.
The student’s admission is however pending the decision by the school’s Governing Board to appeal the judgment of the High Court.
Meanwhile, the other Rastafarian boy, Tyrone Marhguy, is yet to go through the admission process. He will go through the admission process tomorrow, Friday, June 4, 2021.
