It was a thrilling final, and I congratulate our worthy opponents, Presbyterian Boys Secondary School and Keta SHTS, for putting up a gallant performance. In particular, Keta SHTS showed a lot of grit in getting to the final
This National Science and Mathematics (NSMQ) competition has come to stay and it is encouraging to note the massive interest it attracts, even if primarily it is a projection of old-school pride and rivalries
