Bright Senior High School, a private institution in the Eastern region, Akyem Kukurantumi to be precise has rubbished media reports that its President Bright Nyarko Amponsah instigated students to attack WAEC officials supervising the WASSCE at the school’s center and Daily Graphic Reporter.

Bryt Fm understands that none of their teachers allowed to partake in the invigilation of the Social Studies examination on August 6, 2020, due to that, teachers, who doubled as invigilators, had gone home after WAEC decided to change them.
In a video cited by Bryt FM indicate that private security men posted to the examination center “prevented the principal from entering” even at the time he attempted to visit the center to restore calm, hence the principal was not around when the incident was going.
The confusion is said to have broken out when a student reportedly retaliated a slap by an invigilator who claimed the boy was cheating. Another student claimed her answer sheet was torn apart over a similar suspicion.
The head of Communication at Bright Senior High School, Dr. Isaac Asare commented on video footage in which the principal is seen storming out of the exam center, he said, the scene was filmed after the examination when Mr. Amponsah had gone to find out what had happened.
“The president was not allowed by the security men at the main entrance to enter the examination center, so how can he instigate the students to do such an awful acts PRO asked?
“Again, the Director could not have asked the students to stop writing because the exam was over anyway,” he said.
