MCE JOINS ST. MARGARET MARY SHS TO CELEBRATE QUIZEES
The Municipal Chief Executive, Hon George Cyril Bray this morning, Friday 16th October 2020 joined the St. Margaret Mary’s Senior High School to celebrate their quizees who made it to the quarter-finals stage of the National Maths & Science Quiz (NSMQ) -2020. The short ceremony to honor and celebrate the quizees for their great run in this year’s NSMQ was organized by the management of the school under the leader of the Headmistress, Madam Anastasia.
The quizees, Master Joel Osafo, Miss Elizabeth Siaw and Master Isaac Opare placed Fifth (5th) in the Greater Accra Regional quiz thus progressing into the 2020 NSMQ. They ward off competition from the West African Senior High School & Our Lady of Mercy SHS to progress to the quarter finals of the competition. Unfortunately, they couldn’t progress to the next stage with keen competition from Ghana SHS, Tamale & Mawuli SHS. Their good run in this years NSMQ automatically qualifies the school for the 2021 NSMQ having already contested on five previous occasions.

Amidst all the challenges and lack of resources, they were able to make the school and the municipality proud. He pledged to support the future exploits of the school in such competitions.
