The Ghana Education Service (GES) is set to change school uniforms for students in public schools across the country. The new uniform will set the difference between pupils in the primary level and the rest in upper classes.
Currently Ghanaian school children from primary to Junior High all wear the same attire – Yellow top and brown Khaki down – which has been used for the past 30 years.
The new uniform also has a light brown khaki down and striped top with books drawn in portions.
The new uniforms will be accompanied by a new curriculum being introduced in schools by the education Service, GES director Professor Kwasi Amankwaah announced Thursday.
“We will phase out the current one out. We will draw out the program and give details on how and where to acquire it so that it does not become a burden on the parents,” he told a news conference in Accra.
