Citi FM’s ‘The Literacy Challenge’ Junior High School tour has entered its third week, with the team visiting St. Martin De Porres School and Alpha Beta Education Institute in Dansoman on Monday, June 20, 2022.
The team, led by Magdalene Williams, interacted with students of St. Martin De Porres School and Alpha Beta Education Institute in Dansoman on the technicalities of this year’s competition and how to partake in it.
The students were eager to win bragging rights as the best all-around Junior High School student in Ghana.
“When I first heard about the challenge, my English teacher just looked my way, and I knew I have to make him proud. I know that is what he is expecting of me, and I am sure I can do that. My parents will be proud of me if I am able to get into the top 50 and that is what I also want,” a male student from Alpha Beta said.
“I’m a bit nervous, but I will participate in this year’s quiz. I want to see how I fare, and I am keen on it too,” a female student from Alpha Beta stated.
This year’s competition is sponsored by Vodafone Ghana Foundation as part of the Kindred Partners, Prospectus Ghana Ltd, Dext Technology and Alife Soap.
