Official: GES Releases Fresh Update Concerning The Closure Of Senior High Schools For BECE

Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has received requests from Heads of SHS whose facilities are to be used as centres for the Basic Education Certificate Examination  (BECE) scheduled for Monday 15″ Novembe, 2021 to Friday 19 November, 2021 to allow the students to go home during the period.

Management is keenly aware that the BECE may affect regular classes in some schools. However, the Ghana Health Service (GHS) continues to caution about the erratic COVID-19 situation in the country and advices against mass movement of students during this period.

Management therefore directs that boarding students in said schools are NOT to go home during this period. Heads are to ensure that the necessary arrangements are made for boarders to remain on campus while engaging them in other forms of self -guided learning away from the classrooms where the BECE will be taking place. Day students in said SHS may stay home and be provided with self-guided learning materials during this period.

The GES is collaborating with the security services to ensure that life and property are protected before, during and after the examinations.

Hence the Regional Directors of Education are directed to inform all Heads of concerned Senior High Schools to take note and act accordingly.
