SHSs Haven’t Received Any Funding Or Food, Despite Resumption: CHASS Reveals



SHSs Haven't Received Any Funding Or Food, Despite Resumption: CHASS

Most Senior High Schools in the nation, according to the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), have not yet received any food or funding from either the Ghana Education Service or the National Food Buffer Stock Company.

The Conference, which is primarily made up of headteachers from throughout the nation, claims that the ongoing issues with funding are hindering their efforts to reopen schools since it is challenging to accept new children when there is nothing for them to eat.

Rev. Fr. Stephen Owusu Sekyere, who serves as both the Conference’s president and the headmaster of Opoku Ware School, stated that they anticipate the government to provide the cash they have been allotted in order to prevent the reopening date from being delayed owing to a lack of food.

According to Father Owusu Sekyere, who spoke to Citi News, the government broke its commitment to deposit the money into each person’s bank account by 9 a.m. on January 10th.

“We were promised that we should go to the bank in the morning at 9 am and that the money will be deposited into our accounts but as we speak, we keep checking our accounts and no school has received any money from their bank,” he revealed.

The government has failed to provide the individual schools with their food quotas in advance of the start of the new academic year, according to the president of CHASS.

“I am having reports from some schools across the country that they are yet to receive food items,” Owusu Sekyere stated.

We’ve been in touch with Buffer Stock, and they say they are supplying the schools with some four food items, but my information tells me otherwise,” he added.

In light of this, the president emphasized that all hopes have been dashed and that the only thing left to be hoped for at this point is that the administration will pay attention to their problems.

“Students keep reporting, and we don’t know what to do at this point so all we can do at the moment is keep waiting for the monies to be released.

We don’t have power over what happens or when the food items are supplied,” he bemoaned.
