Some angry parents on Thursday verbally assaulted the headmistress of Tema Senior High School over what they described as the unnecessary delay in the admission process for their children.

The headmistress, Mrs Elizabeth Asare who could not bear the persistent insults by the parents, allegedly dashed to the school’s assembly hall and threw all the prospectus away with anger.

“I was here on September 6th and was told to come this week and since Monday I have been and they authorities continue to tell as stories,” another parent said.
