Schools reopen today across the country for all levels [KG to University].
In a communique by the Ghana Education Service (GES), it said learners in Primary school (KG to Basic 6) will close at 12-noon.
The GES reduces lesson hours or contact hours for learners as was the case when only students in JHS 2, JSH3, SHS2, and SHS3 were in school.
GES Reduces Lesson Hours As Schools Reopen Today
KG1-Basic 6 will therefore start school at 8 am each day and are expected to close at 12 noon.
Thus the Ghana Education Service has reduced hours students spend in school from seven (7) hours to four (4) hours each day.
On the other hand, Junior High School (JHS) and Senior High School (SHS) will spend 7 hours in school. They will commence classes at 8:00 am and end at 3:00 pm each day.
The reduced contact hours means school children would close earlier than usual and may pose challenges to working parents who may be at work.
Learners in Basic 1 to JHS1, will be in school for the first time in the last 10 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the 22nd National Address, President Nana Akufo-Addo outlined governments’ efforts towards the safety of learners.
He indicated that alcohol-based hand sanitizers, face masks, liquid soaps were to be supplied to schools.
Veronica Buckets, rolls of tissue paper among others, are to be distributed to schools in the country.
Nana Akufo-Addo also called on learners at all levels to observe COVID-19 protocols at all times; be disciplined have a sense of responsibility to help stop the virus from spreading in schools.
