The Ghana Education Service (GES) has officially approved the introduction of Armwrestling in basic and second cycle schools across the country. This exciting development aims to promote sports and physical activities among students while providing them with a unique opportunity to participate in the thrilling sport of Armwrestling.
The GES, in response to a request from the Federation, has granted the necessary permission to bring Armwrestling to the pre-tertiary education level. With this approval, young talents in schools will have the chance to showcase their strength, strategy, and discipline in Armwrestling competitions held within their districts and schools.
In light of the GES’s approval, Regional Directors have been instructed to officially notify Metro, Municipal, District Directors, and Heads of Second Cycle Institutions about the introduction of Armwrestling in schools.
This communication ensures that all relevant stakeholders are well-informed and can provide the necessary support for the successful integration of Armwrestling within their respective districts and schools.
It is crucial for education authorities and institutions to adhere to these directives to fully embrace and implement the introduction of Armwrestling. Failure to comply with the guidelines may result in the revocation of the approval, thereby depriving students of the opportunity to explore and excel in this captivating sport.
The GES and the Federation are optimistic that the introduction of Armwrestling in schools will contribute to the overall development and well-being of Ghanaian students, inspiring them to strive for excellence in both sports and academics.
