The Ghana Education Service has rescinded its decision to allow students in Senior High and Technical schools to go home for the mid-semester break following the surge in COVID-19 cases in the country.
In a statement signed by the Deputy Director-General(Q&A), Dr. Kwabena Bempah Tandoh, the break should be observed in the schools without any academic activity.
“Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES), therefore, wishes to inform heads of Senior High and Technical Schools that students are NOT allowed to go home during the mid-semester period. Mid-semester break should be observed in school with no academic activity. Academic work should resume on Monday, July 26, 2021, as earlier communicated.”
“By this letter, Regional Directors of Education are to inform all Heads of Senior High and Technical Schools to take note and communicate same to staff, students and parents.”
This letter follows an earlier letter that directed heads to allow students to go home for the mid-semester break and allow only those who want to stay back to do so.
