Ghana’s Education Service (GES) after consultations with relevant stakeholder has slated March 10, 2021, as the school reopening date for the 2020 BECE graduates to report to their various enrolled Senior High School.
The Director-General of GES, Prof Opoku Amankwa speaking on UTV’s Adekye Nsroma show monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said his outfit had to maintain the reopening date even though it announced to review it.
“The first-year SHS students will report to school on 10th March as earlier scheduled but we are in consultations with SHS Headmasters/mistress to extend the date to start academic activities for this academic year”
Prof Kwasi-Opoku Amankwa said academic activities for the 4th batch of the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) beneficiaries have been proposed to start one week after school reopening, thus Monday, March 15, 2021.
This he said will enable the Form 1 students to have ample time to prepare for teaching and learning amid the delay in the release of the 2020 Senior High School (SHS) placement as a result of the coronavirus.
“So a first-year student can print his or her school placement enrolment form on Friday and report to school on Wednesday, March 10, 2021,” he told the host of UTV’s Adekye Nsroma to show Mrs Yaa Konama.
