Form 2 students in Junior High Schools and Senior High Schools will be returning to school on Monday October 5, 2020.
This was confirmed in a statement by Cassandra Twum Ampofo, the Head of Public Relations Unit of the Ghana Education Service (GES).
According to the GES, this is to enable the JHS 2 and SHS 2 students complete the 3rd term and 2nd semester respectively of the current academic year.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in an address to the nation in August announced that the JHS 2 and SHS 2 students will return to school to complete the academic year and write their examinations.
“With Junior High Schools operating with class sizes of thirty (30), and Senior High Schools with class sizes of twenty-five (25), SHS 2 and JHS 2 students will be in school for ten (10) weeks to study, and write their end of term examinations,” the President said on Sunday, August 30, 2020.
He also indicated that all JHS two and SHS two students will be given reusable face masks, and JHS 2 students will also be given one hot meal a day.
Management of the GES also assured students, parents, teachers and the general public that all the necessary measures have been put in place to ensure their safety while in school.
