NSMQ2017 Finalists the journey thus far


After four weeks of exciting and nerve-wracking competitions, three former champions of the National Science & Maths Quiz have made it to this year’s grand finale as they aim at winning the coveted trophy and the bragging rights as champions of Science and Mathematics in Ghana.

The three finalists: Adisadel College; the defending champions, Prempeh College; three-time winners (1994, 1996, 2015) and St. Thomas Aquinas SHS; 2013 champions, all look forward to increasing their tally of wins by winning the 2017 edition of the National Science & Maths Quiz.

The contestants of Adisadel College, Edward De-Graft Vanderpuije Quansah and Sylvanus Afful Assan-Annobil, are bent on retaining the trophy as the second school to win the competition back-to-back after Presbyterian Boys’ SHS did in 2008 and 2009.

Winning the 2017 edition of NSMQ thus, means a lot to them.

St. Thomas Aquinas SHS made history in 2013 as the first day school to have won the competition. The “Toms” are a force to be reckoned with going into this year’s finals considering their impressive perfomance in their contests so far. Bright Asiedu and Christopher Anamalia will be anticipating a second title not only for their school but also, increase the number of trophies to nine for the Greater Accra region.
