This is a report of an assault committed by the headmaster of Jachie Pramso SHS (JAPASS).
Mary, a final-year student, was brutally beaten by the headmaster, Mr. Donkor, for no reason.
I offered him my jacket to cover up his incorrect attire when our headmaster was about to punish him for it,” the 19-year-old told Akoma Fm in Kumasi.
After he hit me viciously in the office, she told Akoma Fm.
“I’m still having acute aches in my spine a week after the lashes,” Mary said.
Now that I’ve been traumatized, I can’t even concentrate or learn. I haven’t been able to go to campus since the incident occurred, and I’m afraid it will affect me.” – she continued
Hannah Amponsah, the Ghana Education Service’s (GES) Ashanti Regional Coordinator for Girl Child Education, has described the headmaster’s actions as unprofessional and advised the victim to report the matter to the district office.
