The Half Assini Zonal branch of the Ghana National Association of Private Schools (GNAPS) has decided to sanction the head teacher of the Christian Academy School whose misbehaviour resulted in the relocation of the on-going Private Schools Games from the school’s sports grounds.
The local Chairman of GNAPS, Mr John K. Ofori made this known to GNA Sports at Half Assini on Thursday.
He said Christ the King JHS beat their Christian Academy counterpart 3-1 in their football match on Tuesday, February 21, during the games being held at the Christian Academy School.
Mr Offori said the head teacher of Christian Academy, Mr John Ebate who was not present during the match, rather wrote a protest letter the following day to the organizers of the games that the third goal of Christ the King be nullified.
He said Mr Ebate explained that he learnt that the ball hit the cross-bar and back into the field of play for the referee, Lazarus Appiah to award it as a goal and therefore suggested a re-play of the match or the games be relocated from his School’s compound.
According to the Chairman of the GNAPS, despite appeals by the executives to Mr Ebate to allow the games to continue at his school, he refused.
The executives therefore has no alternative than to relocate the games to the Nzimaman Proprietary School, he said, adding that this is the third time Mr Ebate had created similar confusion during such school festivals.
He said the Association will meet next week to decide the type of sanctions to apply on the head teacher.
Meanwhile the Christian Academy has been withdrawn from the competition.
Five JHS from Half Assini and Ekpu, forming the zone, are undertaking part in football and volleyball for both boys and girls.
The five-day games will end on Friday, Feb. 24. GNA
