Augusco Headmaster Reinstated

Share it:
The headmaster of Saint Augustine's College, Mr Joseph Connel has been reinstated as confirmed by the
(Augustines Past Students Union) APSU Secretary Eric Atta-Sonno in a facebook post.



The APSU Fraenity has received the good news with great joy.

THE INTERDICTION

Mr. Connel was interdicted for demanding GHS430 from each newly admitted student before handing out admission letters.
Confirming the news on Friday, October 14, deputy Minister of Education, Alex Kyeremeh, said the education ministry was tipped about the illegal charges on the afternoon of Thursday, October 13, following which he called up the Central Regional Director of Education to follow up on the matter.


APSU CONSIDER S WITHHOLDING SUPPORT TO AUGUSCO UNTIL HEADMASTER’S INTERDICTION IS REVERSED


In response to the interdiction, Dr. Anthony Osei, President of APSU with 5,000 members across various year groups  attended an emergency meeting called by the Board. Prior to this, Dr Osei hosted an emergency strategic meeting at the Union’s Secretariat in Accra.
The boycott and suspension proposal was being strongly pushed by a section of the Union’s members, who, understandably are outraged by the unfair action of the GES. This action had the potential of derailing many years of diligent work. It also had the potential of stifling participation from alumni including activities like the mentorship and counselling programme.
The question is who suffers if this situation remains unresolved? Unfortunately, it would be the innocent students, and not those who took the 'hasty and ill-advised decision.'


APSU AS A MAJOR STAKEHOLDER

APSU is a key stakeholder in the affairs of the College, as will be shown shortly, using verifiable facts. Over the last five years, the Union, together with individual APSUnians, have contributed over one million dollars to the College.

THE APSU SOLIDARITY
We stand in solidarity with our Headmaster, who is doing a fantastic job as is verifiable from the academic and other records. The synergy and collaboration between the headmaster and the Union is at its best, resulting in increased financial, technical, and moral support from the Union”.
We urge all APSUnians and well wishers to rally together at this difficult time to support a good cause.
"We're going to stand with Mr. Connel. There are a number of things we can, and will, do," Dr. Osei said, adding that the Union has not ruled out court action.
"That's on the table," he noted. "Bottom line is that we join the College Board in calling for the reinstatement of Mr. Connel."
