Ghana Education Service reverses directives

Please FOLLOW this page.

The GES has withheld it's earlier directives for final year students in high school to go on a mid-semester break.

As the special adviser on health at the presidency, Dr. Anthony Nsiah Asare, said he believes schools are now the safest place in the country.

The ministry of education has therefore in a statement said it has reversed the instructions after consulting the ministry of health which said they should restrict the mass movement of students due to the recent outbreak of covid-19.

However they indicated that the break still holds but students are to enjoy the break on campus, but with no academic works.

Academic works will resume on Monday July 26, 2021.

The health body noted that students should therefore not be allowed to go home, as it will present a challenge to the already life threatening covid-19 condition in school and will contribute to a large spread.

It therefore recommended that;

1. The planned date for the break be maintained.

2. Students be restricted to enjoy the break on campus, and must not go out.
