Management of Ghana Education Service has noted that the on-going school placement exercise has been smooth so far and wishes to express its appreciation to Heads of Schools, students, parents/guardians and the general public for their cooperation and support so far.
Management further notes that some students have still not been able to go through with their self-placement issues and some others have not concluded their admission process
In the light of the foregoing and to give parents and guardians some additional time to prepare the students for school and for the schools to have additional time to prepare to receive them, Management has decided that the re-opening of schools for first year students should be rescheduled for Thursday 18th March through to Sunday 21 March 2021.
The spread out period is to enable the schools to structure the admission processes in such a way that not too many students get crowded at the school at one particular point in time
Academic work in all schools should commence on Monday 22nd March 2021.
Regional Directors through Metropolitan/ Municipal/District Directors of Education should ensure strict adherence of these directives.
Management wishes to encourage parents/guardians to ensure that students leave home with some nose masks to complement what they will receive in schools.
