According to UNICEF, the necessary protocols are now practiced in the Junior High Schools (JHS) and Senior High Schools (SHS) to prevent the contraction and spread of COVID-19, hence, the urgency for Reopening schools in Ghana.
UNICEF stated in its submission that, “When children attend school they not only have an easier time learning — they have access to social support, handwashing facilities and nutritious meals. Reopening schools must be a priority as COVID-19 lockdowns ease.“
President of Ghana, Nana Addo said during his 15th Nation Address;
“The Ministry of Education continues to engage the Ghana Education Service (GES) and all relevant stakeholders to conclude discussions on the modalities surrounding the reopening of our pre-tertiary schools. I will communicate, in due course, the decisions that will be reached from these consultations.”
Hopes are still high on Reopening schools in Ghana for students.
