St Augustine’s headmaster reinstated

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has reinstated Joseph Connel as the headmaster of St Augustine’s College.

Mr. Connel was interdicted in October following a Ministry of Education investigation establishing that he had allegedly charged unapproved fees.

A letter written by St Augustine’s Past Students Union (APSU) and sighted by 3news.com expressed gratitude to the GES for its decision to recall Mr. Connel to his post.

The Board of Governors of St Augustine’s College had earlier asked that the interdiction of the School’s headmaster be reversed.


The Board had argued that Mr. Connel’s interdiction was not based on investigations anchored on proper procedure.

The Board said it noted a number of flaws in the whole process including the procedure, the date and time of interdiction and the date and time of the investigation.

It said the whole process was a breach of natural justice.
