Students and Parents were stranded as NOWA Insist on school fees hike mid session and PTA of the school have already filed a case at the court to restrain the NOWA school authorities from implementing the fees hike
 Navy officers wives association secondary school Karshi turned back students and shut out parents and their wards who paid the usual fees as contained in the teller given to the students at the end of last term less the contentious increment.
Students who returned to school between 12 noon and 2:30 pm were lucky to be checked in irrespective of if they had paid or not. The finance officer had explained to a parent that the increment which she didn’t pay would be recognized as outstanding payment but her son was checked in.
However, those who came in later did not enjoy such grace as they were denied entrance. A parent who spoke on condition of anonymity said the authorities had threatened to send those who were earlier cleared without the increment home by Tuesday 2 May 2023.
A parent who spoke to newsmen said the issue was not just the amount involved but the failure of the school authorities to dialogue with parents, adding that this is the second increment in a session which had led to the PTA seeking a restraining order.
The parents called on the school authorities to await the resolution of the issue by the court or through dialogue and allow their children resume school .
Another parent who claimed anonymity said that since the takeover of the affairs of the school by the current president of NOWA, the school has not been the same and it is quite unfortunate that after  over 13 years of the existence of the  school, the current president of NOWA who is due to leave by May will want to destroy all that the school has stood for over the years and called on the top hirachy of the Navy to wade into the current injustice  by the NOWA President and her team by staying status quo on all fees increment untill the determination of the case in court
