Why Deny Private School Children Equal Access to Category ‘A’ Schools – GNACOPS Quizzes MoE

It is the wish of every government duly elected by the citizenry to dispense its duties and responsibilities without discriminating against others in any form, in this case based on a business orientation.

Except that, that business in question is illegal according to the laws of the country.

Ghana, including other west African countries such as Sierra Leone, Liberia, Gambia, etc in 1952 signed an agreement to have the West African Examination Council, WAEC, headquartered here, in Accra, so that WAEC can assess and award the students who are transiting from the Basic to the secondary level and to the university as well.

WAEC, a limited by guarantee organization is funded by Ministry of Education with the tax payers’ money to assess every Ghanaian child and award them certificates accordingly. On the contrary, children in private schools pay for the same examination every year and this has been the norm since WAEC started its operations in the country.

According to, Section 27 under this act, which states that,’the Ministry of education shall improve and strengthen its relationship with private education institutions by involving them in free and open participation in education programmes’

The above section of the Act, derived from the 1992 constitution, has been breached by the MoE such that, the Ministry with its agency, GES, has allocated 30% placement in the SHS in category “A” schools to the students in public schools only. This 30% is quoted in the hand book called Computerized School Placement System (CSPS).

The Private schools Council has realized that it is a deliberate attempt on the part of the Ministry to deprive the private school children from competing with the public schools in admission processes into these category “A” SHS.

This is because comparatively, students from private schools perform better than students from public schools and they therefore get admission into these category A schools every year more than those children in public schools.

GNACOPS, seeks explanation from the MoE, why this discrimination?
If truly the Ministry, for that matter the government acknowledges the facts that the children in private schools are all Ghanaian, then there should be no discriminating when it comes to selection and placement to the Senior High Schools.

Why are they not given a fair share also?
The private school council is even against the monopoly of WAEC assessment in the country because parents are tired of the frustrations their children go through every year, after writing the exams, there is always an issue of leaked examination questions which leads to the particular subject paper being cancelled.

This is hard to believe and needs to be looked into!!!
There is always an increment in these examination fees every year and students from private schools are expected to pay these monies.

Surprisingly after paying and writing the same examination with their counterparts in public, the GES with their unpopular decision of reserving 30% of placement into category “A” schools deny these innocent brilliant school students the legitimate chance to be placed in a school they toiled for.

Can the Sector Ministry be bold enough to explain to all Ghanaian why they should treat these innocent brilliant private school students in such an unpatriotic manner?

Parents of such students would not forgive the Sector Ministry for that matter the government, if they get to know that their children were not placed in schools they qualified for because of an unkempt decision by GES.

The Ghana National Council of Private schools, GNACOPS, is asking the ministry to immediately Withdraw of this unpatriotic internal policy of reserving 30% placement allocation of category “A” schools to public school students.

This, defeat the spirit and letter of the constitution and all educational policies which promote and ensure equal access to quality education for all Ghanaian children.


How To Surprise🎁 Your Girlfriend👩‍👧On Her Birthday🎂

In fact, some of the best gifts are ones that come from the heart rather than being expensive or elaborate. Try one of these ideas for making your girlfriend feel special on her birthday:

Do something she has wanted to do for a long time.

Surprise your girlfriend on her birthday by doing something she has wanted to do for a long time.

Here are some ideas:

  • Go for a morning jog with her at the park.
  • Volunteer at the animal shelter together, cleaning cages and feeding dogs or cats. If you have kids, you could also bring them along when they're old enough to help out as well! This will be a great bonding experience for everyone involved!
  • Take her on an adventure in nature like hiking up a mountain or exploring caves nearby (if there are any). It's important that you plan ahead so she doesn't get hurt while trying these activities though! Also, make sure they aren't too strenuous since women tend to not have as much energy as men do even if they look good doing it too 😉

Go somewhere she has always wanted to go.

As a rule of thumb, we suggest that you take your girlfriend somewhere she has always wanted to go, but never had the time. This can be anything from a trip to the beach or concert to an amusement park or weekend getaway at a fancy hotel. The point is for you both to enjoy yourselves and have fun together!

If you want to do something really special for your lady love on her next birthday, book tickets for her favourite band taking over the town in two weeks—but don't tell her about it yet! This will keep her on her toes during their concert date and make her feel loved after all this effort from you!

Take her on an unconventional date.

A unique date can be the perfect way to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday. When you take a girl out for the first time, you have to impress her and show her that you are not just any guy.

If she's never been to the place where you're taking her for dinner or drinks, then it'll definitely leave an impression on your woman.

You don't have to go overboard with this one; just try something new and exciting! Even if what you choose is not extravagant or expensive, she will appreciate that special effort was made in order for her enjoyment - even more so when she realizes that all other guys wouldn't bother doing such things for their girlfriends' birthdays (or at all).

Get her a thoughtful gift.

When you're looking for the perfect birthday gift for your girlfriend, it's important to keep in mind that she will actually use and appreciate what you get her. A thoughtful gift is one that is special to you, but also something she will appreciate. You can take this a step further by making the gift yourself—this shows that you put a lot of thought into it!

A few ideas:

  • Paint her favourite picture of herself on canvas (or another medium) using watercolours or acrylics
  • Make a scrapbook filled with photos of your favourite memories together and write captions as captions were written back when people still wrote on paper instead of computers (which means they're handwritten)

Spend more time with her than you usually do.

As the saying goes, actions speak louder than words. This is especially true when it comes to your girlfriend of four years who has been feeling neglected lately and has been complaining that she wants more time with you.

You could take her out for a fancy dinner or buy her a gift, but those are all things that have been done in the past by other people and they might not be as special to her as they once were. Instead, why not spend more time together?

important for couples to make time for each other even when life gets busy; this can help keep the spark alive in any relationship!

Do something out of the ordinary for the two of you.

  • Do something out of the ordinary for the two of you.
  • Go for a walk in the park, go for a hike, or get a babysitter and go to a movie.
  • Take your girlfriend to an art gallery or museum and look at all the paintings together.
  • Go to an amusement park that she's never been to before (but don't forget her birthday present).
  • Go see a comedian perform live with your girlfriend so that he can make jokes about how old you both are!

Bring her flowers or a small gift when she least expects it.

Flowers are a classic gift that any woman would love to receive on her birthday. The most important thing to know is what kind of flowers she likes best, so do some research and make sure you know your girl's favourite flower before you go out and buy it.

If you're not sure, ask her friends or family members what they think she would like.

Another thing you can do with flowers is getting creative with the presentation. You could wrap them up in cellophane and place them in a small box filled with tissue paper or put them in a vase and bring that to her house.

This can be done by asking the florist for help if you aren't sure how to arrange them yourself!

Don't forget to include a card or note explaining why they're special: "Happy Birthday" or some form of gratitude might be enough depending on how well you know each other at this point (if not yet).

Give her a private dance party.

If you want to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday, then the best way is to invite her over for a private dance party.

You could play some of her favourite songs, or even make up a song that describes how much she means to you. You can even put on some fancy clothes and dance with her. The most important thing is to make it special because after all, this is the woman who has been by your side since the beginning.

If she doesn't like dancing and prefers to sit back and watch others do their thing, then just make sure that she feels comfortable watching from afar before joining the fun!

Bring back an inside joke or happy memory from your relationship.

One of the best ways to surprise her is by bringing back an inside joke or happy memory from your relationship.

The best way to bring back a happy memory is by showing her something that reminds you both of that memory, like photos or videos. You can also share stories about how funny it was, and how much fun you had together.

For example, if she always laughs when you say “I love dinosaurs” in a really annoying voice, then saying “I love dinosaurs” in your most annoying voice would be a great way to surprise her on her birthday!

You can make your girlfriend feel special without spending too much money

You can make your girlfriend feel special without spending too much money.

Spending time with her and doing something she has always wanted to do is one of the best ways to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday. You can also surprise her by buying her a thoughtful gift.

To make this gift special, you can add a personal touch that not everyone else will have thought of. For example, if your girlfriend likes chocolate then you could buy her some chocolates but add a personal message inside each box so that only they know what it says.


You don’t have to spend a lot of money to show how much you care about your girlfriend. If you want to do something special for her birthday, just think about what she likes and try to make it happen.
