The Citi FM Literacy Challenge on Day 2 of its Junior High School tour visited the St. George’s International School in Accra.
This is part of an objective to encourage students to partake in this year’s contest.
On Thursday, June 9, 2022, the team stopped at the St. George’s International School, where the students showed keen interest in the topic for entry into this year’s Literacy Challenge.
Speaking in an interview, the students highlighted what they seek to be in future and how the competition will help them.
“This is the first time the Literacy Challenge team is coming to my school and I’m very interested in being a part of it. I know it will help get my opinion out there and make me a better writer as well,” a female JHS 2 student said.
Another female JHS 2 student also said she has identified a lot of problems in the country, and she hopes to write and provide solutions to some of Ghana’s many problems.
