hahaha…I seem to laugh non-stop these days about everything but really, it’s amazing how things work best, nowadays, upside-down . You don’t only have to buy grades (whether bought by kids, parents, or both efforts) you’ll also have to do some follow ups…to make sure, the service paid for, has been provided, well…and in this case, it doesn’t look good…
These harsh words were thrown in the face of some innocent looking first year students of some Senior High Schools (name withheld, they always do that).
“We’re in a modern world! Bring a ‘cute’ suitcase and forget about trunks* and chopboxes*…the better Ghana agenda remember??”
In a bid to use the little available space for accommodation, due to the sudden four- year system for Senior High School, headmasters and headmistress are ‘going off’. While intellectual continually debate on the Political motives of the four -year system, students are wondering
how school would be like without chopbox and trunks!!
Some decisions are better taken at dawn…if you ask me.
*trunk – metallic, rectangular – shaped object used by most Ghanaian students (especially high school students), to keep their clothes and goodies.
*Chopbox - a wooden version of trunk and more squared.
