In a bid to promote discipline and uphold a conducive learning environment, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has recently implemented a nationwide ban on skin bleaching among students in all Second Cycle institutions.

This directive is part of the newly approved harmonized Code of Conduct by the Ghana Education Service Council for pre-tertiary level students.

The section of the code titled “Improper Dressing” explicitly addresses the issue, stating, Bleaching of the skin by a student shall not be allowed. The move is seen as an effort to discourage unhealthy beauty practices and promote a positive body image among students.

The rules, however, encompass a number of areas related to student behavior and appearance in addition to the prohibition against skin bleaching. It is mandatory for students to wear well-groomed clothes and shoes at all times.

The code also specifies guidelines for wearing accessories like bracelets, necklaces, caps, braces, and even eyewear. Changes to school uniforms or attire are strictly forbidden, and spectacles are only permitted with a documented medical prescription.

“Students shall not wear chains, bangles, caps, braces. Wearing of spectacles shall be with medical presentation. No alterations to school uniforms or dress shall be allowed. Unprescribed attire found in the possession of a student is an offence attire is an offence. Using unprescribed attire by a student is an offence,” the Code of Conduct stipulates.

The requirements also cover personal grooming, stressing the value of keeping a respectable hairstyle as specified by school administrators.

Hair should be modest, clean, and well-groomed, with a focus on staying away from bold colors and styles. Male students are supposed to have a clean-shaven beard and a well-groomed hairstyle.

“Students should have a decent haircut as prescribed by the school authorities. Hair should be clean, neat, and modest, and avoid extremes in styles and colour. Men’s hair should be neatly struck and beard clean shaven,” states the code.
