Schools can now organize co-curricular activities -GES.


The management of the Ghana Education Service has given schools the green light to organize celebrations or any anniversaries such as sporting activities, speech and prize giving days, debating competitions, and many more in their schools. It could be recalled that due to the outbreak of the pandemic all these celebrations were banned by the government to contain the pandemic in schools.

Management of Ghana Education Service has now brought out the guidelines that teachers and their headmasters can follow to be approved to conduct any event in their school.

Below information contained the steps to follow to apply for approval to organize any celebration or event in your school.

  • write to the Director-General of Education through your District Director and Regional Director of Education seeking approval to conduct an event in your school. State the date, the source of funding, the nature of the program, and the invited government officials.
  • state the duration of the program, any events whose duration will be more than 3 hours will not be accepted by the Director-General. If a school refuses and organized such a program the Regional and District Directors of education will be held responsible. No school will organize a program without approval from the Director-General.
  • invitation of government officials should pass through the appropriate channel and the program should be organized in an open space with a seating arrangement that should follow all the pandemic Protocols. All participants should observe the pandemic Protocols.
  • schools can liaise with their district health Directorate to ensure the program follows the pandemic Protocols.
