Pupils will start wearing the new JHS uniforms from September 2019.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has outdoored a new school uniform for all public junior high schools across the country.
The change means that beginning the next academic year — 2019/2020, pupils in Ghana’s public junior high schools (JHS) will no longer wear the three-decades-old yellow top and brown khaki down popularly called bread and tea.
The new uniform, a brown-stripped white with logos and a khaki down, is being introduced as part of new reforms being implemented by Ministry of Education and the GES.
Speaking at the launch of the new uniforms in Accra on Thursday, the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Prof Kwasi Opoku Amankwa said the new apparel is primarily to distinguish the JHS pupils from those at the primary level.
The cost of the new uniforms will be paid by parents when it takes effect in September, 2019.
