Schools across the country will only open to students in their final year in an attempt to ease restrictions in the country due to COVID-19
President Nana Addo Dankua Akufo-Addo said in his 10th television address to the nation that the step was to prepare students and enable them to take their final exams.
According to him, the reopening will be carried out with an improved protocol for security and compliance with social distance.
According to the President, the various teacher unions had been consulted before taking the step.
“From Monday, 15th June 2020, the decision has been taken, after engagement with the Teacher Unions, whose co-operation I salute, to re-open schools and universities to allow for final year junior high, senior high and university students to resume classes ahead of the conduct of their respective exit examinations. Indeed, final year university students are to report to their universities on 15th June; final year senior high school (SHS 3) students… and final year junior high school (JHS 3) students on 29th June.”
