The Ministry of Education has announced that the Achimota preparatory school is going to be under the General Management of the Ghana Education Service, GES.
This comes after deliberations between both parties following the long-standing dispute over the ownership of the land on which the Achimota Preparatory School is situated.
In a statement signed by the Chief Director of the Ministry of Education, Benjamin Kofi Gyasi, it noted that the school will be under GES and the status of the staff will be decided later on.
“At the invitation of the Minister for Education, the two parties met and after deliberations resolved as follows; Achimota Preparatory School is going to be part of Achimota Basic School under the general management of the GES”.
“The status of the staff and the specific role of the current managers of the school is to be discussed at a subsequent meeting to be facilitated by the Chief Director of the Ministry of Education,” the statement noted.
“The Minister assures parents/guardians, students, and the public that everything possible would be done to ensure that the quality of education which Achimota Preparatory School is noted for, is not compromised under the new management and arrangement,” the statement noted
