Adventist Senior High School, Bekwai (SDASS) has been punished by the Seventh-day Advent Church in Ghana for participating in the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) on a Saturday.
The Church has stated that it will not tolerate the school’s activity since it violates its beliefs and traditions regarding the Sabbath.
It went on to say that by doing so, SDASS had profaned the Christian Sabbath, which is a day of rest, not labor.
“The attention of the Northern Ghana Union Conference has been drawn to the fact that Adventist Senior High School, Bekwai participated in the National Maths and Science Quiz on 15th October 2022. This is a gross misrepresentation of the Church by the institution. The Union disapproves and frowns at the perpetuation of such an act by the school.
“The Union has met with the leadership of the institution on the issue which has the propensity of derailing all efforts of the Church to stand by our beliefs, especially that of the Sabbath.

“Indeed, the leadership of the Church finds it difficult to understand why an institution like SDASS should smack on the Church, its philosophy and beliefs. We strongly believe that no entity of the church would involve itself in such an act in future.
“The Union regards this act of the school as a desecration of the holy Sabbath hours. We will continue to deal with the situation until its final conclusion. We want to assure all Church members that we will continue to hold on to the truth of the Bible, and also protect “Thus says the Lord”,” parts of a communique issued by the Church read.
The SDA, however, urged members of the Church to forgive the school since it has through the leadership of SDA schools in Ghana rendered an apology.
