Ketasco NSMQ Team visited Volta Regional Minister.

The Keta Senior High Technical School, winners of the 2021 Primetime National Science and Mathematics Quiz (NSMQ) Zonal Competition paid a courtesy call on me at the office, Ho on Monday, June 07, 2021.

The school which was led by the Regional Director of Education, Madam Enyonam Afi Amafugah, stated that the school had emerged winners of the Zonal Competition made up of the Volta and Oti Regions and deemed it necessary to inform me about the feat as well as to present the trophy to me as the Minister of the Region.

The Headmaster of the school, Mr. Isaac Kofi Dzodzienyo expressed the appreciation of the school to me for my interest in the school's development. 

He stated his vision of creating an enabling environment for students to study and perform well in the quiz. 

He however, stated that lack of wifi for research, and a mini van to convey contestants and their coaches to participate in mini contests were among the challenges militating against the preparation of the school for the NSMQ. 

Dr Archibald Y Letsa said, he was happy about the visit. Therefore, on behalf of the Co-ordinating Council and on my own behalf, I congratulated the school and its management on the feat. In particular, I was full of praised for the contestants, Miss Lamini Francisca, Master Senyo Bright Gadzo and Master Lutterodt James.

Hon. Archibald valso praised the NSMQ training team of the school for their commitment and dedication towards the preparation of the contestants.

Dr Letsa also entreated the school and the contestants to focus on the ultimate goal of winning the the national contest.

Mr Archibald Y Letsa stated that the Co-ordinating Council and my good self would provide the necessary support for the school to make the Region proud. That notwithstanding, I stated the need for all citizens of the Region to come on board and support the school to prepare the contestants towards attaining victory for the Region. I, thus, suggested that a fund be established for people to make donations towards the preparation of the students for the quiz. This fund would enable the school give more preparation, which is required to win the national prize, to the contestants.

At the end, Dr Letsa concluded by being the optimistic that the National Prize would be brought to the Region this year by the School.
