Stranded students to study under tents; abandoned buildings get quick renovations

Some schools in the Central Region are hastily renovating deserted buildings to accommodate stranded students who were posted by the Computerised Placement System.

The Ghana Education Service has also promised to supply schools with tents so that students who were hitherto refused admission could study and learn under the tents.

For weeks now some prospective students of some Senior High Schools in the Central Region were stranded because school authorities refused them admission. The heads cited limited accommodation and classrooms for their refusal.

The Ghana Education Service directed the schools to admit them hence the promise to provide tents for learning purposes

Joy News’ Central Regional correspondent, Richard Kwadwo Nyarko said parents are insisting their awards get admitted. They would not also accept reposting.

The Director General of Ghana Education Service Mr Jacob Kor last week toured some of the leading schools Cape Caost including Wesley Girls, Ghana National College, and Aggrey Memorial Schools.

Public Relations Officer at the GES, Rev Jonathan Bettey told Joy News it was realized during the tour that some placed students were yet to be offered admission, others claimed they have not been placed at all, while some schools complained of limited space to accommodate students.

They also identified parents who are forcing to get their children admitted into schools they were not posted to as a challenge.

He said the Director General received assurances from heads of some schools that they are working assiduously to admit all students posted to their schools.

“By the end of this week everything would be in place for smooth running of admission,” Rev. Jonathan Bettey promised.

He therefore appealed to parents to exercise patience while the GES get the challenges fixed.
