All is set for the much anticipated quarter final clashes of the High School Debate Competition begining Monday 14th of June, 2021.
Some exciting contests await lovers of debate contests as high flying Afia Kobi Ampem Girls SHS take on last year finalist Opoku Ware School in one of the most anticipated contests for the day. The girls from Trabuom have been phenomenal and are poised to do wonders but faces stiff opposition from two time finalist Opoku Ware School. OWASS were quite shaky in their first contest and will need to dig deep to overcome the Kobi Girls hurdle. Many pundits are of the view that the flow, charisma and delivery of the girls may give them an urge over Owass who are strong with their research but not great in delivery.
Prempeh should not break a sweat in dispatching Kwamang Presby SHS who didn’t look convincing against Ghana Muslim Mission. The standards of the Amanfuo lads could be too high for the Beposo Kwamang based school.
St Monica SHS has a tricky duel against Bompata based Presby SHS who dispatched giants Tepa SHS with so much ease to set tongues wagging but St Monica will be quite a tough customer for them. The Munche lads were very fluent and silky with their delivery in their one-sixteenth clash against KNUST SHS.
The two schools will give the public a good show as they battle each other but the experience of St Monica may give them an urge over Bompata Presby. Munche were 3rd in the last edition and will hope too build on that feat.
The last clash perhaps is the battle of death as two giants in debate competitions battle for a semi final ticket. National Champions in the Independence Debate Competition, Yaa Asantewaa Girls will take on former giants in debate competitions Adventist Girls SHS. Adventist Girls have dominated Regional Debates previously but went I too hybernation for some time. The Ntonso based school dispatched maiden High School Debate Champions T. I. Amass-Ksi to send a strong signal to bookmakers.
Inform YAGSS were just crowned champions of debate in the National independence debate championship after beating OLA Girls in the finals. They were also finalist last in the national competition and are seeking to add the High School Debate to their trophy haul.
This may be too close to call but should Yaa Asantewaa Girls lose guard, they could be shocked by surprise package Adventist Girls SHS.
The Debate is a collaboration of Luv 99.5 Fm and Ashanti Regional Students Representative Council together with CHASS.
Motions and fixtures are detailed below.
