The first term of the 2023/2024 academic year basic schools reopening date is October 3, 2023, the management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) under the auspices of the Ministry of Education (MoE) has announced.
“The reopening date for basic schools for the first term of the 2023/2024 academic year is 3rd October 2023. Please take note,” the Service said in a social media post sighted by AcademicWeek.com.
Asked when Junior High School graduates who sat for this year’s BECE will begin the selection of their preferred Senior High Schools for placement, GES said the school selection will start after the sensitization of the school selection.
The school selection sensitization exercise which commenced on September 11 to 23, 2023 will involve officers from GES Headquarters, CSSPS and Free SHS Secretariat who will be visiting various regions to conduct the training exercise.
In a related development, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has rescheduled the first-year Senior High School and Senior High Technical School (SHS/SHTS) students reopening date to September 25, 2023.
