The Ghana Education Service, (GES), has released the timetable for the double track and continuing students in Senior High Schools for the 2018/2019 academic year.
The first semester for single track first year students and second and third year students will end on December 21, 2018. They will be on vacation from December 22, 2018 to February 28, 2019.
The newly appointed Acting Deputy Director-General of the GES in charge of Quality and Access, Dr. Kwabena Bempah Tondoh, explained that the vacation for third year students will be from December 22 to January 4 next year.
He explained that third year students had to return to school earlier than the rest to begin their second semester because they are expected to write the West African Senior School Certificate Examination, (WASSCE) and therefore needed more time to study.
He said third year students will begin the second semester from January five until June One Next Year to complete their WASSCE.
