Tepa SHS once again proved the validity of it’s adopted slogan, ‘the school of the moment’ in the ongoing Luv Fm/ARSRC Debate as they overpowered Prempeh College to qualify to the quarter finals of the competition in grand style.
The first contest of the day say the two schools debate on ‘the surge in kidnapping, the result of failed security system than ignorance of personal security’ the two sides advanced cogent points to support their stance.
Tepa SHS were clear, concise and sounded convincing to many who thronged the Christian Service Auditorium to witness this historic contest between the Tepa based institution and one of the academic powerhouses in the country Prempeh College.
Tepa SHS were fourth in the last year’s edition and looked poised to go far in the competition.
Prempeh were a pale shadow of themselves as their Speakers lacked voice clarity which made it difficult to hear their view point. Prempeh qualified through the preliminary contest beaten Adu Gyamfi SHS narrowly. Prempeh were eliminated at the same stage in last year’s competition and may miss out in next year’s competition if they fail qualify in Writers and Debaters Championship organized by the Ashanti Regional SRC next month.
Yaa Asantewaa Girls SHS had to dig deep to find antidote to Fomena Amass in the second contest of the day as the two schools battled on the motion ‘the computerized school selection placement system must be scrapped’.
The Tanoso based Yaa Asantewaa spoke against the motion and sounded very punchy and convincing advancing solid arguments and evidence to back their claim that the school selection system has created equality and made access to schools open to all. Fomena cited frustrations and challenges with the system as grounds to scrap the system but in the end failed to match the flow, poise and style of Chelsea led Yaa Asantewaa Girls.
The contest continue on Monday and it’s brought to you by the Multimedia group Luv Fm in partnership with the Ashanti Regional Students Representative Council.
