GES Reschedules Reopening Date Of SHS 3 To May 5

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has rescheduled the reopening date of the Senior High School (SHS) Form, 3 students, to May 5.

In a Facebook post, it was detailed that, this new date came after management considered a proposal from the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS).

The Service said, “This applies to all Form 3 students (single track and double track schools). Further details will be announced. All other arrangements on the calendar remain unchanged.”

Last month, GES postponed the reopening for SHS freshers to March 18 through to March 21.

In a press release by the Deputy Director-General, Anthony Boateng said the action is to give students who have had issues with self-placement time to complete the process as he also, encouraged others who have not completed their school’s admission process to use the extension to complete the process.

The Service added that the rescheduling will also help parents have adequate time to prepare their kids for school as well as give schools additional time needed to prepare to welcome them.

GES has also urged parents to ensure that their children leave home with adequate nose masks to protect themselves amid Covid-19, while management of schools has also been tasked to ensure strict adherence to Covid-19 protocols.
