Achimota Senior High School has added the Rasta-haired student it initially denied admission, to its team of contestants in this year’s National Science and Maths Quiz competition.
Tyrone Marhguy, whose admission was delayed until June 4, 2021, after High Court ruling, was seen in a series of photos the school posted on its social media handles, being prepared for the prestigious annual event for senior high schools.
“Last month, our NSMQ team participated in a trial as we prepare for the upcoming quiz season,” the school captioned the pictures shared on Friday, June 2, 2023.
Tyrone and his other counterpart, Oheneba Nkrabea dragged the school to court for denying them admission due to their dreadlocks which is in staunch practice to their Rastafari religion.
But a High Court ruling on the matter directed the school to admit the students.
