Over 30,000 JHS graduates who sat for last year’s BECE for School exams and qualified for school placement have not gone for admission, a purported statement from Ghana Education Service (GES) has disclosed.
According to the statement sighted by Educationweb.com.gh, in Ashanti Region, there are still about 10,000 students who have been placed in the various Senior High Schools in the Region but have not gone for enrollment.
The Free SHS secretariat following the development has encouraged various Heads of Junior High Schools (JHS) with contact details of such JHS graduates to contact the secretariat for immediate support.
“Please if you find any of them and they are not interested in their schools placed, contact the Regional Free SHS secretariat for support, it is our duty to ensure these students are enrolled and have an education.”
“Heads of Senior High Schools (SHSs) with vacancies could also encourage these students to join them while their stay will be regularised during the headcount exercise next week,” the Free SHS secretariat said in the release.
