NCCE condemns vandalism by SHS students says past questions are mere guide

NCCE boss Josephine Nkrumah

The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has condemned in strong terms the vandalism caused by some senior high school students over strict invigilation during the ongoing West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

In a statement copied UPSANEWSROOM.com Friday, the Commission described the action by the students as “unacceptable, objectionable and intolerable.”

Some final year students in schools such as Tweneboa Kodua S.H.S, Adawomase S.H.S, Juaben S.H.S, Bright S.H.S, and the Ndewura Jakpa Senior High/ Technical School among others went on rampage destroying school properties over what they described as strict invigilation.

Some students also filmed themselves insulting the President and school authorities for the manner the invigilators went about their work.

But the National Commission for Civic Education has condemned the action and utterances of the students.

“In preparing for examination, past questions, Chief Examiners’ Report and syllabi are resources to guide candidates. In fact, it is indefensible to argue that the promise and provision of past questions is enough grounds to demonstrate and destroy school properties,” the NCCE statement read.
