One of key changes that accompanied the new or standard based curriculum is the seating arrangement of pupils in the classroom. That is, pupils would be seated in groups more often than before. With the new curriculum, Kindergarten ( KG) pupils are supposed to use hexagonal desks.
The Ghana Education Service has tasked all Metropolitan, Municipal and District Education Directorates to gather data on furniture in all public Kindergarten, Primary and Junior High Schools. Headteachers have been given links via which they can submit data on their respective schools.
The number of mono, dual and more importantly hexagonal desks available to each school should be stated. Also, Heads of Public Basic schools are to state the number of each type of desk they ( schools) require or need. They ( Heads of Basic Schools) have up to Monday, 13th September, 2021, to submit the data to the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Statistics and Planning Officers for onward submission to Ghana Education Service Headquarters.
Ghana Education Service periodically make capitation grants available to public Kindergarten, Primary and Junior High Schools. However, the Headteachers have been admonished not to use the capitation grant to procure or purchase furniture for their respective schools.
Some schools in the country especially those in the rural communities need much attention. Most schools in the country rely heavily on past students, churches, Non Governmental Organisations and individuals for support.
Ghana Education Service has insisted over the years that, Heads of Public Basic Schools should not allow churches and other religious bodies to use their premises ( classrooms) as places of worship, forgetting that the schools also use the chairs and tables ( furniture) of these religious groups.
