The Methodist Church of Ghana Responds to Ghana Education Service on Directives to Allow Students to Fast in School (Wesley Girls SHS)
Few days ago, news came up to the hearing of the public that, a father stormed Wesley Girls SHS to take his daughter out of the school because she was not allowed to fast.
This news circulated and it caught the attention of the Ghana Education Service. On May 1, 2021, Ghana Education Service writes to the school to give directives that will allow all Muslim students there to fast.
Yesterday May 4, 2021, The Methodist Church of Ghana also held an emergency meeting to reply to what Ghana Education Service has directed them to do. The meeting was chaired by the Presiding Bishop, the Most Rev. Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo
The school is on the view that, that policy has been existing for long and hence, they can’t allow any student to fast in the school.
The said release of the Ghana Education Service was titled RE: WESLEY GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL PREVENTS A STUDENT FROM FASTING.
This is what the Methodist Church of Ghana said about the directives by the Ghana Education Service:
“The school rule in question is a long standing one which is also non-religious and various renowned Muslim ladies in Ghana have passed through the school adhering to such rule.
The policies of the school over 186 years of its existence have resulted in Wesley Girls High School being the school of choice. Excellence and Achievement and the Church remains in full support of these policies.
The Methodist Church Ghana cannot accede to the unilateral directive issued by the Ghana Education Service and insists that the Ghana Education Service respects the long-standing partnership between the Government and the Mission Schools.”
