The 5th inter-classes quiz competition intended to build capacity, listening and fluency skills of pupils as well as develop their self-confidence was held from Monday, 24th May to Thursday, 24th June 2021 at the School’s Assembly Hall.
The contest started at a preliminary stage with 3 representatives each from classes 1 to 6 and was quizzed with 3 rounds of questions in Languages, Math, Science and General knowledge. Winners from this stage qualified to compete at the grand finale.
At the grand finale, contestants from Basic 5A broke the record by obtaining the highest score of 133-points.
Other participants from Basic 1C attained 95-points, Basic 6C obtained 92-points, Basic 4H got 89-points, Basic 3E gained 88-points and Basic 2B had 71-points. The ultimate winners were awarded trophies, medals, and other prizes.
Mr Michael Gyan Kwaffo, the Quiz and Debate Committee Chairperson in his remarks said quizzes and debates generally play a huge role in the development of children as it helps them become assertive and speak confidently in public.
He added that the goal of the committee is to organise internal competitions that would equip and groom the pupils and provide the necessary exposure they would need to compete with other sister schools.
