Well done, guys.
Let’s keep a firm hold, or speak up.

Maybe Anniversary deserves something too, haha.
Organizers, what formulates the award criteria? This award should have gone to OSEI TUTU SHS. In the quarter-finals, OPOKU WARE SCHOOL had 45 points, OSEI TUTU SHS had 43 points, while ST. JOHNS’ SCHOOL had 18 points. So why is ST.JOHNS’ considered the runner-up?
We should grab this one outright.
God made it happen. Congratulations.

Countries are largely theoretical. Since childhood, the World Cup has demonstrated this to me; we must examine the real-world applications, not just personal gain.

This notable victory serves as Presec’s second successive win, garnering an impressive 40 points during the intense contest.
Achimota School, a strong contender in the NSMQ, clinched the second spot with 28 points and demonstrated admirable tenacity throughout the tournament.
