Mrs. Arkoh called for effective supervision to ensure that teacher/pupil contact or instructional hours are fully utilized. The district co-ordinator of private schools, Mrs. Comfort Larson Korsah, appealed to the heads to return their completed logistics forms to the GES office to enable them receive materials from the office. According to her, only 50 out of the 150 heads had returned their forms to the GES.
