The Gold Track students of the flagship New Patriotic Party’s free education program are set to begin their first semester on November 10, 2018 and end on February 28, 2018.
Despite their late reporting to school, the Ghana Education Service has announced a Christmas break from December 22, 2018 to January 4, 2019 for them which would also serve as a mid-semester break.
Speaking to the Daily Graphic, the newly appointed Acting Deputy Director-General of the education service in charge of Quality and Access, Dr Kwabena Bempah Tandoh, explained that the timetable for the double track and continuing students in senior high schools for the 2018/19 academic year had been released.
Tandoh also indicated that the mid-semester for the second semester was scheduled from July 3 to 6, 2019.
These track of students he said would start immediately the Green track student had vacated on the premises of the various institutions on November 8, 2018.
Touching on the third year students, he explained that they had to return to school earlier than the rest to begin their second semester because they would write the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and, therefore, needed more time to study.
He added that the third-year students would begin the second semester from January 5, 2019 until June 1, 2019 to complete their WASSCE.
