The first day of school reopening saw low turnout of students. The schools most of which were still carrying out mop-up cleaning and disinfection say they expect a full swing of activities come Monday, January 18.

From the Western Region, GBC’s Marie Aziz Tunde reports that most schools especially the private ones have agreed to resume on Monday, January 18. In an interview, the Sekondi-Takoradi Zonal Chairman of Association of Private Schools, Charles Mintaba said the move is to get all schools to fully prepare for students to return to school to resume academic work.

Pupils in the Krowor and  Ledzokuku  Constituencies reported to school to clean and arrange their desks for academic work to start on Monday, January 18. At the Dar-Es-Salem Basic School, there was excitement as pupils swept and dusted the desks, with others clearing overgrown weeds on the School compound.

At the Nungua St. Michael School, pupils were grouped as they awaited the opening of their classrooms to begin cleaning. Speaking to Radio Ghana, the pupils said their return to school is good, but it behoves every individual to be responsible for personal wellbeing since the coronavirus still exists.

Meanwhile, some schools remain closed to officially resume on Monday.

Some pupils at schools visited by GBC’s Radio Ghana in the Sunyani Municipality on the first day of reopening expressed mixed feelings about getting back to school after being away for 10 months.

They were of the view that the reopening should have been pushed to a later date to allow them to fully prepare. Others were however excited to be finally back to school.
