The people of winneba, administration and entire students of the University of Education, Winneba on yesterday 6th February, 2019 have been gripped with sadness and sorrow as a level 100 ICT student drowned at the winneba beach while swimming. The deceased whose name is Bernard and a member of the ICT department lost his life around 4:00pm when he and a group of about 40 students went to the beach to relax and have a good time since official school business has not started. The exact cause as to how he drowned is not known but our investigations revealed that almost every year a student die through drowning. Our investigations also revealed that on the 20th of August last year two contestants of a beauty queen pageant lost their lives while taking photos when a strong wind struck them from behind.
In addition, it was also revealed that in 2016 a final year student drowned and lost his life when he went for a swim while celebrating his birthday with friends. Also, on the 13th of September 2010, a level 200 graphic designer student also drowned and died when he went for a swim. The question we are therefore asking is should the school continue allowing the students go to the beach? Tell us what you think in the comment section below…
