The Ghana Education Service(GES) 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 GES said the action is to give students who have had issues with self-placement time to complete the process and also allow others who have not been able to complete the admission process to do so.
“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.”
The statement 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.
