The Ghana Education Service following reports from heads of some Junior and Senior High Schools has cautioned JHS and SHS final year students to desist from any misconduct as they prepare to write their final examination.
In a communique sighted by EducationWeb, the management of the Education Service said it attention has been drawn that some 2022 BECE and WASSCE students are consistently not attending classes after their registration.
“GES attention has been drawn to the fact that some Junior and Senior High School form three (JHS3 and SHS 3) students consistently refuse to attend school and classes after registering for their BECE and WASSCE,” it stated.
Describing the situation as a major misconduct, GES said some of these truant students engage in drugs dealing, bullying, wearing unprescribed attire, use of mobile phones on school campuses, and blatant disregard for school rules and regulations.
Studens who do not refrain from the misconduct, the Ghana Service has said can be deboadinized, write their final examination under police or parent escort or be denied from partaking the impending WAEC examinations.
The management has consequently entreated heads of various public basic schools to report any criminal or indiscipline acts of student to the Ghana Police Service for further investigations and subseuqune prosecution.
According to Ghana Education Service (GES) prospective candidates under Police investigation during the administration of BECE or WASSCE will be allowed to write their papers under police escort.
For prospective students with disciplinary issues in their school, the management of the Education Service indicated they can only come to the West African Examinations Council examination centre accompanied by their parents.
Per the 2022 examinations timetable released by the non-profit-making organization (WAEC), Junior High School (JHS) students will sit for BECE on October 17, 2022 and WASSCE for Senior High School students on August 1, 2022.
