One of the Rastafarian students, Oheneba Nkrabea, who won the case against Achimota School has reported to school just this morning.
He is going to be taken through the admission processes and then he gets the singular opportunity to join his colleagues in class.
This follows an Accra High Court ruling that ordered the management of the school to allow the students to enrol.

The media’s visit to the school on Thursday, June 3, 2021, confirmed that the student has reported to the school and has gone through the admission process.
The parents of Oheneba Nkrabea who assisted him arrived at the school early this morning and submitted the completed admission forms to the school authorities.
Oheneba has begun academic work as he has been allocated a class.
According to the father of the cheerful Oheneba Nkrabea who reported to school today added that the process was smooth and that the school was receptive to him.
“The process was wonderful. The school was receptive to him. The teachers and other staff members were very positive, and so he is in class right now. I appreciate that very much”, Oheneba’s father, Raswad Nkrabea said.
The mother of Oheneba Nkrabea, Maanaa Myers said she is happy with the welcome her son received today.
The student’s admission is however pending the decision by the school’s Governing Board to appeal the judgment of the High Court.
Meanwhile, the other Rastafarian boy, Tyrone Marhguy, is yet to go through the admission process.
According to the media, Nii Armah who has been following the story, Tyrone Marhguy will go through the admission process tomorrow.
However, Achimota School has temporarily; backtracked on its decision not to admit the two students.
The School in a statement after the landmark ruling by an Accra High Court which was addressed by the majority of Ghanaians stated that it had instructed its lawyers to appeal the decision.
Now, the Governing Board of Achimota School has withdrawn its application for a stay of execution that would have enabled it to maintain the decision not to admit the two Rastafarian students, Tyrone Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea.
With this development, the two students can report to the School, join their classmates and participate in all school activities.
