The President of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Senior High Schools (CHASS) Alhaji Yakub Abubarkar has revealed that schools reopening for SHS 3 students was postponed due to lack of furniture and other logistics to facilitate effective teaching and learning.

According to the Kumasi T.I Ahmadiayah Senior High School headmaster, their concerns prompted the education ministry to postpone the reopening date for final year SHS students till May 5, 2021.

“We are talking about the challenges of congestion in our classrooms and dormitories. Through the government intervention of the emergency project we have had additional classrooms and dormitories but the furniture and the beds that we need in those facilities have not been provided yet for many schools,” he state.

According to him, CHASS drew the attention of Ghana Education Service (GES) that the structures provided cannot be functional without the furnishing facilities, so they had to postpone the reopening date for the final year students to buy time for the furnishing to be done.

The GES on Monday announced that it has rescheduled the reopening for Senior High School (SHS) Form 3 students to May 5 citing a proposal from CHASS as the reason for the postponement.
