- The NDC's youth and women wing provided refreshment for parents and students who were stranded at the Independence Square due to the placement problems
- The 2019 edition of the SHS placement has been hit with lots of misunderstanding and confusion
- The Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) was reportedly hacked, frustrating parents and guardians whose children were either not placed or wrongfully placed
Some executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, sent water, snacks and soft drinks to students gathered at the Black Stars Square to sort out their SHS placements.
Many parents and their wards have been left stranded, due to the heavy numbers that trooped to the Black Stars Square to seek redress over their placements.
In a rather comforting move, some NDC executives helped the stranded persons with some water and snacks.
The move was spearheaded by the Youth and Women’s Wing of the opposition party, led by George Opare Addo.
“I was at the Black Star Square earlier today visiting the makeshift Senior High School Placement to see first hand how the exercise was faring,” Mr. Opare Addo last posted on Facebook, accompanied by photos of the items the delivered.
“It was telling, seeing how parents had to leave their important and busy schedules to ensure their wards could access education, and to go through such troubles. We interacted with some of the participants and assured them of our utmost support,” he added.
Senior High Schools across the country will reopen this week, however, many students are still yet to sort out their placements.
While some students rightly identified their schools, they were turned away when they went to register for admission.
This was after the students were placed in the schools under the self-placement module of the Computerised School Selection Placement System (CSSPS).
The CSSPS allows students to see the school they have been admitted to and the programmes they were offered.
Meanwhile, some students have not yet been placed at all, while others also want to change their statuses from day to boarding.
