Kumasi, Sept 14, GNA – 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 registering his child at the Serwaa Nyarko Senior High School in Kumasi, speaking to the Ghana News Agency, said parents 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 waited for their turn to go school.
The GNA as part of its visit to some senior high schools in the Kumasi Metropolis, when the academic year began observed that the queues of parents trying to register their wards admitted under both tracks of the system, had minimised a bit on Thursday, since most of them did the registration on the first day and second days.
The situation was however different on Monday, the beginning of the academic year when the GNA visited the Armed Forces Senior High school and the Kumasi Girls School, all in Kumasi.
School authorities were however not prepared to speak to the GNA team, but GNA observed that there was smooth take-off of the Double-Track System.
Parents, some traveling from as far as Bogoso in the Western were among the others who had formed long, winding queues, in a frantic effort to register their children.
