The Ghana Education Service (GES) has rescheduled the reporting date for all SHS 1 students from 10th March 2021 to 18th March 2021.
All new students are therefore to report to school for the first term of their first year on that date.
Academic work will begin the following Monday, 22nd March 2021.
It is believed that the additional one week has become possible to solve all issues that may have risen due to the 2020 BECE Candidates placement.
