The President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference, Most Rev. Joseph Osei-Bonsu has dared students who cannot comply with the religious rules and practices in Catholic schools to quit and move to other schools, if they so desire.

According to him, many of the students who attend Catholic schools chose the schools because of the age- long discipline and religious ethics that have existed in those schools.

His comment follows a statement by the Bishops Conference Tuesday that directed heads of Catholic schools to “remain resolute” and continue with all religious practices and training associated with the catholic faith despite a government order for school heads to avoid imposing religious beliefs on students.

Speaking to Citi FM, Reverend Osei Bonsu said students of other religious persuasions who cannot stand the rules and regulations in Catholic schools can opt out.

“When people decide to go to particular schools, they do so because of the culture and beliefs of that school.

“And therefore, they agree to abide by those regulations but if they don’t like the regulations; they can go somewhere else,” he stated.
