200 Wesley Girls High School students stranded

The Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast has allegedly refused to admit some students who were posted to the school by the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS).

The students, about 200 in number had documents of placement to buttress their claim of admission to the school but were turned down by the school authorities.

Some of the students who trooped to the school with their parents to have their admissions processed were left stranded as the school authorities insisted that their names were not on the list they received from the CSSPS secretariat.

Now the fates of these students are uncertain as fresh students had already reported and academic work had also begun.

A parent whom the GNA contacted but spoke on condition of anonymity narrated  how her daughter who had aggregate seven (7) was posted to the school and subsequently received a text message to that effect indicating the account she was to pay the school fees into.

She paid the school fees only to go the school on Monday October 26 with the daughter to be told that her daughter’s name was not on the school’s list and that she could not be admitted.

She lamented that she shuttle back and forth from the Western Region every day in an attempt to get the Headmistress for explanation, but all had proved futile while  her daughter’s luggage lied somewhere in Cape Coast.

Another parent also revealed to the GNA that they have been advised by sources close to the school authority to pay an amount of GHC 5,000.00 through an agent before their wards could be offered admission to the school.
