The Appointed Visionary Services (AVS) organized their first ever ‘Inter Private School Championship’ in the aspects of Science and Maths, which took place at the Holy Family Church, Bogobiri. The two staged events which begun on Thursday 29th November saw three schools in each group battling out to make it to the final stage.
At the end of the first day, Anamon Hyeren Standard School had an automatic qualification to the final stage since the two other competitors failed to show up for the competition. One more school pulled out in the second contest and left Steadfast Academy and First Baptist School who squared off in a though contest. At the end, Steadfast won with 39 points, and First Baptist 31 points. Wesley Educational Complex toped their group with 34 points, eliminating Jesus Cares and Holy Family Academy who had 32 and 24 points respectively.
The final stage of the competition was keenly contested by all finalists. At the end of the fourth stage, there was no obvious winner of the quiz. Wesley Complex was just a point adrift of Steadfast. The final round of riddles determined the winner. Anamon Hyeren dropped 4 points for answering four True/False questions wrongly, leaving them with 17 points at the end. Steadfast made 47 points whereas Wesley Complex won the quiz with 50 points.
The Champions took away a trophy, GHC 150.00, exercise books and customized t-shirts.
Steadfast Academy who were the 1st Runner Up took away GHC100.00 with exercise and story books.
The 2nd Runner Up sent home GHC50.00 and some exercise books as well.
The Director of AVS, Mr. Emmanuel Sam, expressed satisfaction in the general performance of the contestants. He reiterated the organization’s mission of paying attention to Science and Mathematics at the JHS and primary levels, so as to help pupils to build self confidence in Maths and Science.
He concluded by entreating all schools to patronize such events, since it would help propel pupils to success in their educational career.
He finally made an appeal to corporate organizations, individuals, media and stakeholders to support the programme in terms of sponsorship.
