The Ashanti Regional SRC President Odartey Samuel Lamptey managed to lead OKESS to secure qualification in the ongoing National Science and Maths Quiz in a dramatic fashion.
Osei Kyeretwie SHS, Jachie Pramso SHS, Toase SHS and St. Louis SHS secured qualification to the next round of the National Science and Maths Quiz currently happening at Opoku Ware School.
Perhaps the most emotional of all the competition was that involving Toase SHS, K-Wey Gey Hey and Nkawie SECTEC. Toase needed to answer a last minute riddle to break the tie after the two schools secured 29 points each.
OKESS was the losing school with the highest score of 30 points and as we discussed with all teachers during the balloting, if a contest doesn’t have a minimum of three schools, the losing school with the highest score will be given a second chance to take that vacant slot. It so happened that only SDA Agona SHS and Asanteman SHS were available for their contest, after Dadease Agric SHS didn’t show up. Thus, OKESS was given the opportunity to take the 3rd slot by virtue of their score. Islamic SHS and Otumfuor Osei Tutu II College got similar opportunities yesterday. So if any contest tomorrow or on Friday doesn’t have the minimum number of three schools, Kumasi Wesley Girls’ can get a second chance also. It’s a very fair process arrived at in consultation with the teachers in all regions.
