Crystal Heights International School

A teacher at Crystal Heights International School at Amasaman, on Friday, 21 February 2020, allegedly beat a 4-year-old kindergarten pupil with a mop stick until the little boy collapsed.

The teacher got enraged after the little boy vomited while feeding.

She ordered the child to clean the vomit and while at it, hit the KG1 pupil with a mop stick until the little boy fell unconscious.

The victim was rushed to the hospital where he was resuscitated after eight infusions. 

The parents of the child have reported the matter to the Nsawam Police Station and are seeking justice.

Speaking to Benjamin Akakpo on the Executive Breakfast Show (EBS) on Class91.3FM on Monday, 24 February 2020, the father of the victim advised parents to listen to complaints from their children when they return from school.

The school authorities told producers of the EBS that they are aware of the incident and are currently doing their independent investigation so cannot speak on the matter immediately.
