GES postpones reopening date of SHS 1 students.
The Ghana Education Service has postponed the reopening of first-year Senior High School students to
Thursday, March 18 to Sunday, March 21.
In a press release signed by the Deputy Director-General, the Service said the action is to
give students who have had issues with self-placement time to complete the process.
Also, others who have not completed their school’s admission process have been
encouraged to use the extension to complete the process.
The Service added that the rescheduling will also help parents have adequate time to
prepare their kids for school as well as give schools additional time needed to prepare to welcome them.
“Management had decided that the reopening of schools for first-year students should be rescheduled for
Thursday, March 18 to Sunday March 21, 2021.”
“The spread out period is to enable the schools to structure the admission process in such a way that
not too many students get crowded at the school at one particular point in time.”
Meanwhile, academic work will begin on Monday, March 22, in all schools.
GES has also urged parents to ensure that their children leave home with adequate nose masks to protect
themselves amid Covid-19, while management of schools has also been tasked to
ensure strict adherence to Covid-19 protocols.
“Academic work in all schools should commence 22nd March, 2021″.
“Regional Directors through Metropolitan/Municipal/District Directors of Education should ensure strict adherence of these directives”
“Management wishes to encourage parent/guardians to ensure that student leave home with some nose masks to complement what they will receive in school”.
