The Upper East Regional Branch President of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), Richard Akumbasi, has indicated that senior high schools in the Upper East Region are ready to receive first-year students, albeit for a relatively short 3-week period.

Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Mr. Akumbasi explained that schools have already begun receiving students who have successfully gone through the placement process.

“Schools have started receiving students who have been able to pick admissions and have been able to buy the few things that they are supposed to buy. All the schools are ready and prepared to receive them. The only thing is that the numbers are not as we expected. I think they are trickling in because of the time period.”

Mr. Akumbasi said that while the three-week stay of students in school is rather short, a lot could be achieved.

“If the students all come in their numbers, I am sure that we can do orientation, and the students can familiarize themselves. We can even start some small classes. Even if it’s not so much, when we come in January, we would begin to look at the serious academic work. Three weeks is a lot as far as teaching and learning are concerned,” he said.

Additionally, some food has been promised to help the schools manage the swelling population, Mr. Akumbasi said. However, it is unclear when the schools are to receive the food items.

It would be recalled that first year students have been asked to report to school. They are expected to break on December 21, 2023 and return January 3, 2024.
