URGENT U-TURN: Don’t allow students to go home for mid-term break due to Covid – GES to SHS heads

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has written to heads of all senior high and technical schools not to allow any student to go home for the mid-semester break.

This new directive follows a letter sighted by Honestynewgh.com  from the Director General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) to the Director General of GES recommends that the mid-term break should be “restricted to campus and boarding students must not be allowed to go home”.

According to the GES, mid-semester break should be observed in schools with no academic activity.

“Reference is made to an earlier communication on the above subject matter. Reference Is also made to the attached letter from the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service with reference number
GHS/DGS/1.5 which cautions against the mass movement of students due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19.

Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES), therefore, wishes to inform Heads of Senior High and Technical Schools that students are NOT to be allowed to go home during the mid-semester period.

According to GES Mid semester break should be observed in schools with no academic activity. Academic work should resume on Monday July 26, 2021 as earlier communicated.”
