The Ghana Education Service (GES) has postponed the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year to January 2021.
The postponement was announced by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during an address on Sunday evening.
He revealed that the decision was taken after consultations.
“The Ghana Education Service after further consultations has decided to postpone the remainder of the academic year for all nursery, kindergarten, primary, JHS1, and SHS1 students.
The next academic year will resume in January 2021 with the appropriate adjustments made to the curriculum to ensure that nothing is lost from the previous year,” the President said.
“The relevant dispositions will also be made so that the presence, at the same time, in schools of all streams of students, can occur in safety,” he added.
Meanwhile, second-year students of Senior and Junior High Schools are to report to school on October 5 to complete the 2019/2020 academic year.
