A semester scheme will be run by junior high schools in Ghana from Monday, January 18, 2021.

The Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, disclosed this.
Speaking at a press conference on the steps put in place by the Ministry of Education to reopen colleges, Professor Opoku-Amankwa said,

“This time around, JHS will be running semester programs.”
We are going to make sure the basic procedures are followed. We will have face masks that are reusable. For outdoor sports, schools may not be open.

“They’re going to launch from 18 January to 11 June. They’ll go for a rest then. The second semester will begin with an examination on 6 July. On the other hand, the form ones and twos will conclude the academic year on December 7, but we have set up mid-semester breaks because this will be a long time.

For the first-semester mid-semester break, we will have March 15-19, 2021, and the second-semester mid-semester break will be September 6-10, 2021.’

He added that pupils would, however, continue with their trimester method in kindergarten and primary schools.

From January 18 to April 16, school will begin. As their break time, they will then have April 17 to May 3rd. However, their second term will commence from May 4th to August 6th. From August 7 to September 5, their break will take place. From September 6 to December 10, their third term will commence.

Timetable

Professor Opoku-Amankwa said about Senior High School education that “we have prepared the calendar to capture the time lost while the students stayed at home.” We now have what the all-year-round calendar is called. From January to December it continues.

Between September and October, we expect the exams to be written, after which the year will end. For the second year, there will be double-tracks. We are phasing out the scheme, as the president suggested.

He also noted that “TV, radio, and online classes will continue to increase teaching and learning face to face.”

On Sunday, January 3, 2021, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ordered that Ghanaian students at all levels of education return to schools as part of the government’s strategic efforts to ease the constraints on educational activities caused by COVID-19.

GES Postpones The Reporting Date For SHS 1 Students

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has declared that first-year Senior High School (SHS) students across the country will return to school from Thursday, March 18 to Sunday, March 21, 2021.

On Wednesday, March 10, 2021, first-year SHS students across the country were supposed to report to school.

The GES has delayed the reopening date to give “students and parents enough time to prepare for classes, while School Management prepares to accept them,” according to the GES.

“Management has also recognized that some students have not yet enrolled, and the extension will allow these students the opportunity to do so as well,” according to a statement released by the GES and signed by its Head, Public Relations Unit, Cassandra Twum Ampofo.

“Academic work will begin in earnest on Monday, March 22nd, 2021.”

Second and third-year SHS students will have a Mid-Semester Break from Monday, March 8, to Thursday, March 11, 2021, according to the announcement.

“The Mid-Semester Break is not mandatory, but students who wish to remain on campus must be fed and follow school rules,” it continued.
