Chief General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, says generally open fundamental schools in the nation will re-open on Tuesday, January 18, 2021.

He said the schools should have been returned on Tuesday, January 11, 2021, yet must be rescheduled to January 18, 2021.

He said the extra week added was to remunerate educators and students for postponing their excursion more than seven days last year because of the National Standardized Test (NST), which was composed on December 17, 2021.

Prof. Opoku-Amankwa said the Service was working on the scholarly schedule on the returning date of freshers and proceeding with understudies for Senior High Schools.

He included that the Ministerial Committee Schools Calendar shaped by the Ministry of Education had presented its white paper to the Minister of Education.

The school schedule advisory group is led by Mr John Ntim Fordjour, a Deputy Minister of Education, and has agents from National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA), GES, and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) administration.

The school schedule will contain dates for all government funded school, exercises, including returning, excursions, and assessments of schools from this year 2022 to 2024.

It is relied upon to be an exhaustive schedule that will address difficulties with respect to dates and courses of events of school exercises and carry reprieve to guardians and understudies. In the mean time, public Senior High Schools have resumed on January 5, 2022.

He said the schools should have been resumed on Tuesday, January 11, 2021, yet must be rescheduled to January 18, 2021.

He said the extra week added was to repay educators and students for deferring their excursion north of seven days last year because of the National Standardized Test (NST), which was composed on December 17, 2021.
