The Methodist Church of Ghana has declined to alter the policies of the Wesley Girls High School on the orders of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to allow students to fast.
This comes in the wake GES issued the directive after a Muslim student was prevented from participating in the annual 30 days of fasting and prayer in accordance with the Islamic religion.
The school said students are not allowed to participate in fasting due to health conditions and the rule applies to all pupils, including Christians.
In a new press release signed by by its Administrative Bishop, Rt. Rev. Micheal A. Bossman and available to Gossips24.com, the Methodist Church of Ghana which established Wesley Girls High School said: “The Methodist Church cannot accede to the unilateral directive issued by the GES and insists that the Ghana Education Service respects the long-standing partnership between the government and mission schools”.
