The majority of final-year students will be permitted to complete their final WASSCE exams, nonetheless. The board also recommended demoting all of the school’s prefects for missing the attack’s warning signs. All students who are found to be responsible after thorough investigations will be required to pay for all objects that were damaged at the New Juaben Senior High School.
