The Head of the Public Relations Unit for the Ghana Education Service (GES), Cassandra Twum Ampofo, says the Service has made available a technical team to deal with irregularities that will come about as a result of the Senior High School placement.

This statement by the PRO for the GES Cassandra Twum Ampofo follows a statement released by the service.

A statement signed by Casandra Twum Ampofo stated that the GES is preparing to release the computerized school placement for the Senior High School.

She added that due to Covid-19, the management of GES is setting up call centers across the country and other appropriate alternative measures to resolve all placement related issues.

“The service continually assures parents, guardians, candidates and the general public to remain calm as GES is committed to ensuring a smooth, merit-based SHS placement process under established guidelines and look forward for their full cooperation in this regard. Management of GES takes the opportunity to thank all stakeholders for their patience and support”, the statement added.

Speaking on Atinka FM’S AM Drive with host Kaakyire Ofori Ayim, Cassandra Twum Ampofo, urged parents to exercise patience and channel all complaints to the GES through the call centers.

“ Over the years, we realized that most of the complaints had to do with change of schools and so we have put measures in place to address all that. Some people who have been placed tend to forget that they selected five schools. Some of them insist their wards get their first choice schools. We will advise parents to take note that since their wards selected five schools, they can be placed in any of these schools. The  self placement was also a big challenge and we have put measures in place to address that as well,” she added.
