Changes made to 2018/19 SHS Calendar

By on

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has made “minor adjustments” to the 2018/2019 academic calendar, particularly for double-track schools.

“This is to ensure that the SHS 1 students in Double-Track schools will complete the end of second semester together and allow schools that wish to have their SHS 1 students write the same end of semester exams flexibility to do so,” a release to all regional directors of education indicated.

According to the release on Thursday, May 2, Green Track students will begin their mid-semester break on Friday, May 10 as scheduled.

This means Gold Track students will also begin their second semester on Saturday, May 11 as scheduled.

SHS 2 students will also complete their second semester on Friday, July 5 as scheduled.

The adjustment involves the reopening for Green Track students.

Instead of returning on Saturday, June 15, they are now scheduled to return on Saturday, July 6.

This is “to allow them to complete the semester together with the Gold Track students on 6th September 2019”.

The multiple-track system under the Free SHS Policy was introduced ahead of the 2018/2019 academic year.

It goes into its second year this September, which will mark three years into the government’s flagship education policy.
