The Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) has disclosed the reopening date for final year SHS students was rescheduled to May 5, 2021, to contain enrollment of first and second-year SHS students.
Yacoub Abubakar, the President of the CHASS in a proposal for the reporting date to be extended said congesting the classrooms in the midst of the covid-19 will cause another outbreak of the virus in the various schools.
Speaking to JoyNews monitored by Educationweb.com.gh, Abubakar said his outfit considering the large population suggested for GES to shift the reopening date of the final year SHS students to May 5, 2021, as announced.
This the CHASS President said will enable the Management of schools to contain all the first-year students that will report to school and then the second-year gold track students to also continue with academic activities.
“That way we could have the students in school and be able to observe the Covid-19 protocols because the congestion would not have been a serious issue with us,” the leader of the Conference of Heads stated.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s Education Service (GES) has said it rescheduled the reporting date of the final year SHS students to reach the targeted 1,080 instructional hours need for students to complete the syllabus.
