Teacher Unions Call for Revised Reopening Dates for Senior High Schools


We the Pre-Tertiary Teacher Unions in Ghana Education Service (GES), have noted with concern some challenges with the reopening and reporting dates of students and staff to Senior High Schools.

Placement of first year students into Senior High Schools was done on the 28th of November 2023, and the process is still ongoing. The announced date for the reporting of first year students which is slated for 4th December 2023, appears not practicable due to the fact that, the placement and the reopening dates are too close.

In addition, asking form one students to report on the 4th of December 2023, only for them to go home again on the 21st December 2023, for Christmas break will put an undue burden on students, staff and parents.

The vacation which spans from the 21st of December 2023, to the 2nd of January 2024, is too limited a time to offer members of staff (both Teaching and non Teaching) any meaningful rest.

We hereby call on the Management of the GES, to reconsider all these situations and effect changes to the dates.

Counting on you for your swift response.

Yours faithfully,

Thomas T. Musah, General Secretary, GNAT

Angel Carbonu, President, NAGRAT

King Ali Awudu, President, CCT-GH

Mark Dankyira Korankye, General Secretary, TEWU
