The Ghana Education Service has postponed the reopening of first-year Senior High School students to Thursday, March 18 through 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 through 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.
