The 2021 academic calendar is designed and planned in coordination with the leadership of CHASS keeping in mind the need to ensure that schools achieve closing the gap in learning due to schools closures for COVID-19 prevention.

• All SHS 3 students will complete *1,080 hours* before the beginning of WASSCE. They made up for lost time from *October to December 2020* with the partial reopening of schools to complete the 2019/2020 academic year.

• All SHS 2 students will complete *1,440 hours* of contact instead of the 1,134 as an effort to make up for lost time.

• All SHS 1 students will complete *1,350 hours* to help improve teaching and learning.

The three calendars are further explained below:

*SCHOOLS RUNNING DOUBLE TRACK FOR FORM 1&2 STUDENTS*

• Schools running this calendar have 5 tracks of students and at no point will more than 3 tracks of students be in school at the same time.

*SCHOOLS RUNNING DOUBLE TRACK FOR SHS 2 ONLY*

  1. Are the form two single-track students suppose to go to school after vacating for the first semester on March 5,and go on 5th April 2021?

  2. I am in from three and l want to know when we will start the Wacce and when we return to school are we going to come back home and will the from one be on double tracking and will it affect the from three

  3. Let them perform their duties as assigned to them my brothers and sisters for all shall come to pass but we gold truckers are really suffering

  4. why are we the form threes writing our WASSCE in September but no the usual MAY/JUNE. September is too far, please do something about it by bringing it back to the usual period.

  5. when i become Prez i will sack all GES managers for no leting we the gold trackers sit in the house 4 1year. How will the charity going to survive why, aba bullshit eso nie.

  6. Please we are begging GES to do something about the green track students especially our second session. It is so painful when I look at the calendar , why should we go to school June 1 and vacate June 30. What do you expect us to do within this short period of time.you have to treat us equally. Go to school July 1 and vacate August 27 , just imagine how can this Help us . Please GES should check the system again

  7. GES are not been fair to we the green track students. In fact, when I look at the number of months the gold track are going to spend in school is far more than the number of months we are to spend in school. Why so? Are we not all students and we are all going to sit for the same exams and you people want to cheat us for the gold track students.we are not happy about that. So please we are appealing to GES to review the calendar for us to all equal contact hours. When I did calculation for the whole academic year the gold track have more days to spend in school than we do.

  8. If it’s really true that gold form 2 student are living for school in March, then it’s really not fair, gold students have really stayed home for a very long time and we are fed up 😕. Please do something about the date.
    Thanks

  9. Why is GES doing that to Gold tracks we have almost stayed home for a year cause Gold tracks vacated and when we were about to resume school then cov-19 came and instead for you guys to let us go first you are sending the green tracks WE ARE SUFFERING GOLD TRACKS WE ARE LACKING BEHIND PLEASE DO SOMETHING ÀBOUT OUR DATE by Evangeline adwoa Asare attend St Louis shs AM AGAINST THE DATE FROM GES

    • Please, I don’t understand something here ooo , the form 1 single track under double track are vacating in 16 June and the form 1 single track are vacating in 16 July . Why ? Are they not all form 1 single track students? They all went to school in March , how come the single track students are spending almost five months in school whiles their colleagues form 1 single track under double track are spending less than such month ? Please do something about the date of the single track form 1 students which is 16 July .I suggest they vacate on the same day and date which is 16 June with the single track students under the double track. Let the students rest small .Five months is not easy .. It’s a punishment to the single track form 1 students.
