All students returning back to school on January 15, 2021, to commence 2021/2022 academic year will move one class ahead but will not be promoted, GES Director-General Prof. Kwasi Opoku Amankwa has said.
The Director-General speaking at Press Briefing monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said: “We don’t want to talk about promotion, but what we want you to know is that they will all move one class ahead”.
His comment comes after he was asked if all students will be promoted to the next class when schools reopen on January 15 for basic schools.
“So if you are in class one (1) you will move to class two (2) but it doesn’t mean you have been promoted, the class 1 curriculum that you were supposed to have covered that you did not cover, we will make arrangement to ensure that you cover that before you go on to cover what is in class two”, Professor Opoku Amankwa stated.
We are hoping that COVID-19 will not distract the academic calendar so by the time they get to November/December and finishing the academic year they will cover what they need to cover to be in class 2 and be ready the next January 2022 to go to class 3″, the GES staff told journalist.
