The Ghana Education Service (GES) says no pupil will be sacked for not wearing the new school uniforms for Junior High School students when the academic year starts in September.

Commenting on its implementation, the Director-General of GES, Professor Kwasi Opoku Amankwa said the old uniform will be phased out over a three year period.

He noted that further discussions will be held at the regional level to ensure a smooth phase out.

The announcement of the new uniform, sparked some criticism.

It will have a striped shirt with the Ghana flag, a graduation cap, a certificate and books printed in it to be worn over a khaki skirt for girls and  khaki shorts for boys.

The Ghana Education Service has explained that the flag printed in the shirt symbolises patriotism, the graduation cup and certificate stand for intelligence and superiority while the book depicts knowledge for empowerment.

The cost of the uniforms will be borne by parents though the government will cater for students in deprived areas in line with existing arrangements.
