CHASS suspends NSMQ, all extracurricular activities over lack of funds
It has emerged that all extracurricular activities hitherto undertaken by Senior High Schools in the country, outside campus have been temporarily suspended per the latest orders of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Senior Secondary Schools (CHASS). The extracurricular activities have been suspended due to lack of funds.
At the 3rd Quarter National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held at the New Juaben SHS in Koforidua on Thursday, 21 July 2022.
According to the resolution reached after meeting, CHASS said ” “Most of the monies sent to the schools these days are for perishables and apart from the fact that it is inadequate for even the feeding of the students, it is equally misappropriation of funds if we should continuously use such monies for things they are not intended for”.
It continued that: “We shall do the needful when monies for the specific programmes are lodged into our accounts”.
The temporarily suspended extracurricular activities include: Sharks Quiz, National Science and Math Quiz (NSMQ), culture and sports among others.
There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.
1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.
2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.
3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.
Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one.
