The Ghana Education Service (GES) has postponed the re-opening date for Form 3 Senior High School students to Sunday, August 25.
The students were initially supposed to return to school on Monday, August 19, but a statement released by the GES on Friday said there has been a change in the re-opening date following a stakeholder meeting.
“This means that Form 3 students are to report for the 1st Semester of the 2019/2020 academic year on Sunday, 25th August 2019 for academic work to begin on Monday, 26th August, 2019,” the statement said.
The GES further stated the various stakeholders in the educational sector will hold further consultations on how to make the re-opening and management of the various schools smooth.
Parents and students are expected to use the extension period to prepare extensively for the next academic year.
