Dr.Yaw Osei Adutwum – Minister of Education 

Despite objection raised by parliament and teacher unions, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has gone ahead to re-open schools as scheduled.

The decision impacts a significant number of students, especially those in Senior High School (SHS), with the first-year students being the primary focus.

According to a press release from the GES, the reporting date for SHS1 students is December 4th, 2023, as stated on their placement forms. It is expected that schools will begin the registration and orientation of students on this date. The academic calendar indicates that there will be a break for the Christmas holiday on December 21, 2023, and academic activities will resume on January 3, 2024, and continue until March 5, 2024.

Management is encouraging all students who have not yet completed their self-placement to do so as soon as possible.

The GES also expressed their gratitude to all stakeholders for their cooperation and support throughout the CSSPS process and asked for patience as they work to ensure the academic calendar’s smooth implementation.
