💥11,964 Confirmed Cases: Ignore Re-Opening Of Schools And Stay Home- Counsellor Daniel Tells JHS, SHS, University Students
- Last Sunday, President Akufo announced Covid’19 confirmed cases as 11,964. Just the day before, i.e., Saturday, the cases were 11,118. This means, in just 1 day, Ghana recorded an increase of 846 new cases.
If these figures don’t scare you, what else do? Well, the good news is, per the Constitution, you have the right to Life! It is criminal for anyone to attempt at this right.
JHS, SHS or tertiary students are to report back to school on 29th, 22nd and 15th June respectively. For the JHS and SHS students, they’ll spend about 6 weeks on campus. Four weeks for revision and the remaining weeks for the BECE/WASSCE.
But, if you are a student, who can do your personal revision in the house, DON’T GO TO SCHOOL!
It’s dangerous out there! Teachers are not going to teach any new topic. At the time of the closure of schools, it was just 2weeks away from WASSCE. All teachers are done with new topics.
No student or parent should risk their life in the name of revision. When it’s time for the Exams, just go and write. That’s safer!
If you are a parent who can hire a private teacher to help your ward through this 1 month (July) revision period, do so. It’s Safer! Use the money your ward will spend in the boarding house for the period to hire a private teacher.
Note that it is not illegal to refuse to report to school. It is not a punishable act. Your life, destiny is in your own hands. Blame yourself if you contract the disease!
