Authorities of the Adwuman/Manhyia Roman Catholic Primary and Junior High School in the Kwabre East Municipality of the Ashanti Region of Ghana have closed the school.
This was as a result of a physical attack on a teacher by a parent after the teacher punished her child who is a student of the school.
The nature of the punishment that was given to the student isn't very clear even though the Ghana Education Service has been very lenient with the form of corporal punishments given to students.
According to Apostle Kelvin Oppong, Deputy Chairman of the School Management Committee (SMC) for Adwuman/Manhyia Roman Catholic basic school,"The school children were having their weekly examination when one of them was engaging in examination malpractice. A Teacher at the Primary five (5) corrected the said child. The child then went home to inform his mother that a teacher had flogged him. The mother came to the school and was very angry amidst assaulting the teachers of the school. The teachers asked her to calm down, so they can call the Headteacher to resolve but she did not listen and then went ahead to invoke a curse on three teachers."
