GES Releases An Update On School Reopening For SHS

The Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) following social media reports that the green, gold track SHS students date to report to school has been extended says the Senior High School calendar has not been changed.

GES in a statement released on their Official Facebook page, it states that first-year or Form 1 gold track students will resume school on Monday, October 11, 2021. and Form 2 gold track students on Saturday, October 30, 2021, to start academic work.

“Form 1 Gold students resumed school today October 11, 2021and Form 2 Gold students are expected to resume on Saturday, October 30, 2021, as indicated on the 2021 academic calendar,” the GES Management stated in the latest release on 11th October 2021.

The Education Service has consequently urged Authorities of the public Senior High Schools in the country to stick to the 2021 SHS academic calendar submitted to them on June 30, 2021, and circulated the same to staff and students.

Previously a post was circulated on the social media which seeks to alter the specific date for the reopening of schools. In that post "The second year students in track green and first year students in track gold were to report to school on Monday 1st November, 2021. It further said that boarding students will report on Sunday 31st October, the second semester academic work will begin on 1st November,2021. However those dates in the bold fonts are false and the public should ignore that.

In a related development, the Institute for Education Studies (IFEST), following the fire incident at the Nyinahin Catholic Senior High School, has called on GES to review disciplinary measures to maintain sanity in schools in the country.

According to Education Studies, the indiscipline in various educational institutions has graduated from the mere chanting of war songs, boycotting of dining to the attacking of invigilators, staff and destroying properties.

These are worrying trends and needs to be nipped in the bud before they get out of hand. It has been observed that after registering for their final exams, some students tend to be very indisciplined causing series of problems,” it said.
