GES Reinstates Trimester System, Releases New Calendar

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has reinstated the trimester educational system for basic, primary, and Junior High Schools (JHS) in place of the semester system the ministry sought to institute.

The rescission followed a public outcry against the policy.

“Following the directives to commence the semester system, the ministry has received misrepresentation from a section of the public and key educational stakeholders to reinstate the trimester system.”

The Minister for Education, Yaw Osei Adutwum, on that note, has directed that the educational system be reverted to the trimester system.

The first term begins on January 18 and then ends on April 14, 2022, with the vacation springing from April 15 to May 9, 2022.

The second term will begin on May 10 to August 18, 2022, with a vacation springing from August 19 to September 12, 2022.

The last term will begin on September 13 to December 12, 2022.

The Senior High Schools will however continue under the semester system.
