Ghana Education Service: Wesley Girls High School and Other SHS Directed to Allow Students to Fast.

In a letter dated 1st May,2021 the Management of Ghana Education Service has directed the Management of Wesley Girls High School to allow students to fast.

This decision was made by the Management of Ghana Education Service due to the rule made by the Management of Wesley Girls High School not to allow students to fast regardless of the religious beliefs. The reason which was given by the Management of Wesley Girls High School was due to health challenges students face when they fast.

The Management of Ghana Education Service insists that parents who want their wards to fast should give their consent to take full responsibility in case their child face health problems.

The Minister for Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum met the Presiding Bishop Most Rev. Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo and some Board members of Wesley Girls High School for which such decision was made by the Management of Ghana Education Service.

This directive means that all Schools should allow students to fast for religious reasons provided their guardians have given their consent to take full responsibility in case their wards develop health problems due to fasting.
