Students at the CK Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences are calling on the management of the school to find continual solutions to curb the increasing spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the school.

Their calls came at the backdrop that five of their colleagues have been tested positive for the virus and are under quarantine at the War Memorial Hospital in Navrongo.

The situation they say has affected them psychologically and expect the school management to either close the school or allow them to go home as the campus is no longer safe for them.

They also expect the school management to conduct academic activities virtually to avert the growing threat of the virus in the school.

The Public Relations Officer of the Students Representative Council in the School, Awana Michael who made this known on Day Break Upper East show on A1 Radio noted the union is advising all students to halt all academic activities with immediate effect.

He said “All students affected with the Covid-19 disease and those asked to self-isolate, awaiting testing are encouraged to be patient as the student leadership is working to make sure their welfare is catered for. As of yesterday, we recorded three more students being infected with the virus. This increasing trend we expect the management of the school to take measures seriously because we do not trust the school environment anymore”.

He stressed that “The unfair treatment given to students who have been affected with Covid-19 virus as well as those who have been asked to self-isolate, awaiting testing are advised to call their parents or guardians and inform them. These actions taken are as a result of management’s (Academic Board) entrenched position despite the overwhelming evidence with regards to the current Covid-19 situation on campus”.

The council PRO however called on students who are qualified for all scholarship interviews and should feel free to attend.

“656 students who have gained the opportunity to go for scholarship interviews at their respective districts from now till the end of September can go. Management has practically said nothing about this group of students. But on the 12th of July, 2021 management released a letter publishing about 291 student names for not paying their school fees. If by the grace of God, students have gained this wonderful opportunity to be able to pay their school fees amidst this covid-19 era, why deny them? We want to sincerely put it on record that we are not in any form challenging the decision made by the academic board, but we want our concerns to be attended to as soon as possible. Our lives matter more than face-to-face academic activities and certificates”.
