The Ghana Education Service (GES) has announced the introduction of a new school uniform for Junior High School (JHS) students.
Students are expected to start wearing the new school uniform from next academic year, 2019 – 2020.
The Director-General of the GES, Prof Kwasi Opoku Amankwa announced this at a press conference in Accra on Thursday morning.
Commenting on the introduction of new school uniforms General Secretary of the Textiles Garment and Leather Workers Union, Abraham Koomson, said it would be unacceptable if government import the uniforms.
He told Radio Ghana that he does not believe the President would sit down for the Ministry to procure the uniforms from outside.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the National Parent Teachers Association, Alex Danso is surprised at the new curriculum and uniforms introduced by the Ghana Education Service (GES).
Speaking to GBC’s Radio Ghana, Mr. Danso was unhappy the Ghana Education Service failed to consult Parent Teachers Associations about the reforms.
