The Ghana Education Service (GES) has rescheduled the reopening for form 3 Senior High School students to May 5, 2021.
A Press Statement from the GES signed by the Public Relations Officer(PRO), Cassandra Twum-Apofo said: “This is to give the forms 3 students an uninterrupted instructional period till they write their final examination.”
The form 3 students were originally scheduled to have reported to school on 7th April and be in school until 28th May 2021. They were hitherto to the new directive ought to have gone on vacation from 28th May to 29th June 2021.
However, the current arrangement, therefore, means that the final year students upon reporting on 5th May 2021, will be in school until they write their WASSCE.
“The management of GES, therefore, considers this, as a better option where the students will not break their Instructional period and have their full 1,080 hours needed prior to the final examination.
“The management sincerely apologizes for the late communication of this new development,” the GES statement said.
