The beautiful ladies of Mampong based St Monica SHS has won this year’s High School Debate Competition after a grueling encounter with Prempeh College.
It was quite an emphatic victory as the ladies won with quite a wide point gap in what was considered a very exciting debate Final.
A Charged atmosphere at the Auditorium of Christian Service University College motivated the girls to deliver the holy grail to the teeming fans of St Monica who argued against the motion “Africa is still under slavery”.
The two schools advanced cogent points to support their claim and won many to their side but the three judges had other ideas.
In the end, the blue and white girls won comprehensively to pick the three tickets to Dubai for a one week sightseeing trip.
The winners picked won cask prizes, Scholarship packages, television, many Survenirs and the icing on the cake is the one week all expenses paid trip to Dubai for the 2 Debaters and their Trainer.
Prempeh College has surpassed expectations as they have never come this close to winning the competition. They will surely build on this achievement and come back stronger next year.
The High School Debate Competition is an initiative of Luv 99.5 Fm with partnership from Ashanti Regional Students Representative Council and the Conference of Heads of Second Cycle Schools.
St Monica has consistently qualified to the Semi final since the start of the competition three years ago.
The Regional Director of Education Mary Owusu Afriyie (Miss) presented their medals and winning package to the Girls after their victory.
In the 3rd place contest, Adventist Girls SHS accounted for Opoku Ware School in another interesting contest.
Adventist Girls narrowly missed the final by two point margin to Prempeh College in the semi finals of the competition.
The Ashanti Regional Students Representative Council congratulates St Monica SHS for this uncommon feat.
