The SHS 2 Gold track students, on the other hand, are expected to vacate on May 29, 2021, making way for the Green track students who will return to school on June 1, 2021.
Meanwhile, the first-year Green track students will be vacating on June 15, 2021, and Gold track students will vacate on May 4, 2021.
The SHS 1 single-track students, on the other hand, will vacate on June 15, 2021.
Final and second-year students in single track schools will return to school on May 5, 2021, and June 1, 2021, respectively, whereas the first years will go home on July 16, 2021.
The GES has directed all Heads of Schools to take note and to communicate same to staff, students as well parents, in order for them to prepare well.
