According to the GES, the decision to postpone the date was necessitated by a late emergency meeting by key stakeholders in the educational sector hence the lapse in communication.

Speaking on Peace FM in Accra, the Director-General, Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa said he understands the frustration parents are going through because of the change in date.

"We're truly sorry; it's a very frustrating situation and so we understand the parents," he told Kwami Sefa Kayi in an interview on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo'.

The GES said it has rescheduled the reopening for Senior High School (SHS) Form 3 students to May 5.

In a Facebook post, it said this was after management considered a proposal from the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS).

The Service said, “This applies to all Form 3 students (single track and double track schools). Further details will be announced. All other arrangements on the calendar remain unchanged.”
