Final year Senior High School students expected to go back to school on Monday, June 22, 2020, will be allowed to undertake religious activities following an announcement by President Akufo-Addo.

In a televised address to the nation on guidelines for the partial reopening of Senior High Schools, the president said final year students are expected to return to the classrooms for the next two months.

During this period, the president said visiting will not be allowed but students are permitted to undertake religious activities.

He noted that all students in schools with boarding house facilities will be camped on campus whereas students in schools without such facilities will commute from their various houses to school.

“A maximum of twenty-five students will be permitted in each class. All-day students in schools with boarding houses will be resident in these boarding houses, whilst day students, in schools without boarding facilities, will commute from home, and will be required to adhere to enhanced hygiene protocols; eating in dining halls will be inappropriate numbers; and no visitors to the schools will be allowed. There will be no mass gatherings and no sporting activities. Religious activities, under the new protocols, will be permitted. Social distancing and the wearing of face masks are obligatory in our schools,” the President said.
