(KUAJOK, WARRAP) – A number of students who locked Kuajok National Secondary School principal in his office and staged a violent protest against instructions to switch to the South Sudan National Schools syllabus from Sudan have been suspended indefinitely by the Warrap State Ministry of Education.

The Director General in the State Ministry of Education, Adriano Kiir Ayuel says the students have also been barred from entering the school premises – until further notice. Kiir Ayuel said the students were demanding to sit their final examinations in third year (like in Sudan) and not in senior four, as stated in the new curriculum of South Sudan.

“If they say they want to be in school, nobody refuse them to sit but what they are insisting on is what we don’t want to accept. If they insist on getting the Sudan curriculum to be taught to them which is not in the policy than we said no. They can remain out, but if they know we have reviewed and we have reconcile that we were doing something wrong contradictory to the system, than we can said you are welcomed back,” he explained.
