Schools in Ghana will return to full academic work beginning mid-January 2021, sources within the government have told Graphic Online.
The major decision, the outcome of Wednesday’s cabinet meeting chaired by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is expected to be announced soon.
The exact resumption date is unclear yet but the sources say it could be any date from 12th to 19th January and will mark a return from the long, Covid-19 inspired schools closure by the government.
President Akufo-Addo on March 15, announced the closure of all schools in the country beginning March 16, along with a ban on public gatherings when Ghana confirmed her first two positive Covid-19 cases.
Second-year students in junior and senior high schools were however allowed back in school on October 5, 2020, to complete the 2019/20 academic year.
