GES To Announce Measures To Be Taken Ahead Of A Possible Reopening Of Schools
We have in our possession a letter from the Ghana Education Service (GES) which suggests that the body has launched a stakeholder consultation to provide the President with measures to be taken ahead of a possible reopening of all basic and senior high schools.
It could be recalled that schools have been on break since March this year after it was deemed necessary as the number of Coronavirus cases in Ghana kept rising.
The President in his recent address extended the ban on all public gatherings which include school activities to the end of May indicating that there will be a review on whether it’s safe for pupils and students to go back to the classroom.
In view of this, the Ghana Education Service (GES) is urging all stakeholders including leadership of teacher bodies like GNAT, NAGRAT among other have been invited to contribute their ideas on how the schools can ensure there’s safety and maximum Security if pupils are allowed to come back to school.
These bodies are expected to join others on May 19 to deliberate on the way forward in order for schools to reopen.
