No end-of-term exams for students from KG to JHS – GES announces

All school authorities at the basic level have been instructed by the Ghana Education Service (GES) not to organize end-of-term examinations for the current academic year.

In a press release, Deputy Director-General of the GES, Dr. Kwabena Bempah Tandoh advised that all management of schools should ensure that all its students from KG to JHS are engaged in “recovery learning”.

“Head teachers and teachers are to use class exercises and class tests to assess students/pupils,” the Service said in a statement.

He added “Management further wishes to inform all District Directors and School Heads that the existing arrangement for stationery use at the District Offices, which is to be deducted from the schools’ capitation grant allocation remains in force,” it further stated.

Kindergarten, primary, and junior high school (JHS) pupils in both private and government schools resumed school on 15 January 2021, after schools were closed down in March last year, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
