The National Science & Maths Quiz, has for the past 26 years, been largely dominated by all-boys’ schools. However, this time around, Notre Dame Girls’ SHS and Bolgatanga Girls’ SHS are determined to change the narrative and become the first all-female school to clinch to the ultimate, that is, trophy and the bragging rights.
In the 2018 edition, Notre Dame Girls’ SHS were painfully eliminated by the reigning champion, St. Peter’s SHS on the first day of Preliminary Stage contest. Coincidentally, this year the girls again featured in the first day of Prelims, but this time overcame their male contenders from Uthman Bin Affan Islamic SHS and Adaklu SHS, and won the contest with 36 points, thus keeping their hopes alive.
In a similar fashion, Bolgantaga Girls’ SHS left nothing to chance when they came up against Ashaiman SHS and Lawra SHS. They hope to be true ambassadors of the Upper East Region.
Although the journey to the top is a roller-coaster ride, these girls remain positive and are determined to make history.
