Ashanti schools begin Free SHS enrollment process
Parents and their wards in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi, have begun trooping to Senior High Schools to start the registration process for the Free Education policy.
Students going through the registration process were seen in long queues at some Senior High Schools when Citi News’ Ashanti Regional correspondent, Hafiz Tijani visited them to monitor the process.
The students said the school authorities have taken them through the process and asked them to come back on Monday to receive the items the Government was providing under the policy.
At the Serwaa Nyarko Girls Senior High School in Kumasi some students expressed excitement as beneficiaries of the policy.
The school authorities who will not speak on record said they will remain available to attend to candidates coming in to undergo the process.
Meanwhile, some schools in the Central Region are turning away prospective first-year students due to the absence of their heads.
The students were asked to return to the school on Monday (September 11) to begin the process for their enrollment.
