The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has urged the Ghana Education Service to put in place measures to prevent the postponement of reopening dates for SHS students in the future.
According to GNAT, the decision to delay the reopening for SHS 3 students by another month is quite disturbing and does not help the students who are preparing for their final exams.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) on Monday announced that it has rescheduled the reopening for Senior High School (SHS) Form 3 students to May 5.
According to GES, the postponement was 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.”
But Speaking on Morning Starr on Wednesday, the General Secretary of GNAT, Thomas Musa, said the GES must find ways to engage students so they don’t become rusty as their final exams approach.
