Send wards to school early– GES Director


The Northern Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has appealed to parents to send their wards to school early to enable them have a full term of forty-one (41) days.

The Regional Director, Aljahi Haruna Cambodia, noted that it is crucial to report early because any delay could negatively affect a student’s performance.

He said parents have no excuse to not send their wards to school early because government has taken full responsibility for fees, stationery and tuition.

“We have forty one days and if you stay at home for one week, you lose eight days out of that and no one will organize extra classes to help you catch up with your colleagues. Because of this, we have reduced drastically the number of items parents are supposed to buy for their wards, you have no excuse not to report to school on the reopening day,” he said.

The first year of the double track system of the Free Senior High School policy begins September 13 and both the green and yellow tracks of students are expected to report to school Thursday.

In an interview with Radio Savannah in Tamale, the Regional Director explained that, after registration, the gold track will go on a forty-one day vacation while the green track begins academic work in earnest.

The Gold track is expected to return to school in November while the Green track goes on holiday.

Mr. Haruna Cambodia has also assured parents and wards who are having challenges to stay calm as the GES is working around the clock to resolve all issues.

He said the GES has opened secretariats across all the ten regions to receive and address any complaints associated with the Computerized School Selection and Placement System as well as the double track system.

GBC’s correspondent revealed that, a number of students and their parents besieged the Education Directorate September 12 morning to lodge various complaints at the Directorate.
