The Committee set up by the Ministry of Education to draw a stable calendar for pre-tertiary schools next week will release the 2022 school academic calendar, the Deputy Director-General of TVET service, David Prah has said.
David in an interview with Kumasi-based Kessben FM monitored by EducationWeb.com.gh said he is hopeful the committee next week will release the much-awaited academic year calendar to students and the general public.
“Technical Vocational and Education Training (TVET) schools have been told to hold on reopening school because the Ministry of Education says a uniform pre-tertiary schools calendar will soon be released,” he told the radio station.
In another interview, the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa said the calendar to be released by the school calendar committee will go beyond 2022 to 2023 and 2024 academic year.
“The calendar that we are drawing also looks beyond 2022 to 2023 and 2024 to see how we can gradually come back to the school calendar year, which ends in June/July and starts in September/October,” he told Daily Graphic.
The 2022 school calendar Mr Amankwa said is being worked on by the calendar committee chaired by the Deputy Minister for Education, Reverend John Ntim Fordjour and other representatives from GES, NaCCA and TVET service.
