Parents have been counselled to maintain strict supervision of their wards, especially girls, as they spent two months at home, awaiting their turn to begin second cycle education.
Mr. Samuel Oduro, a parent, who spoke to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), while registering his child at the Serwaa Nyarko Senior High School (SHS) in Kumasi, said they needed to keep an eagle’s eye on their children and always counsel them to stay clear of habits that could truncate their education, as they wait for their turn to go school.
They should engage them to be sober, working hard on their books by way of revision to always refresh their minds, stayed at home and not be roaming aimlessly with friends in town.
The GNA during a visit to some SHS in the Kumasi Metropolis, three days into their re-opening, observed that the queues of parents trying to register their wards admitted under both tracks of the system had minimized.
This was not unexpected since most of them had done the registration on the first and second days.
The situation was however different on Monday, the beginning of the academic year when the GNA got to the Armed Forces SHS and the Kumasi Girls School.
Some of the parents in the long winding queues, had traveled from as far as Bogoso in the Western Region to register their children.
The school authorities were not prepared to talk but there was every indication that the double track system had taken-off smoothly.
