Citi FM’s ‘The Literacy Challenge’ on the second day of week three of its Junior High School tour had the team visit Edlys Montessori School and Ancilla School.
The visit to the two schools is part of efforts to interact with students across the country and encourage them to participate in this year’s edition of The Literacy Challenge.
The team, led by Magdalene Williams, engaged with students of Edlys Montessori School and Ancilla School in Haatso on this year’s competition and how they can be a part of it.
During the session, the students showed a lot of interest in the competition and spoke highly of The Literacy Challenge.
“When the topic was first introduced to us, I was a bit confused and I felt challenged but after the session and how to go about it, I think I’m fine. I have also thought through it and I think I will challenge myself with this,” a male student from Edlys said.
“Citi FM is doing an amazing job with The Literacy Challenge, and this year I am excited to participate in it for the first time,” an Ancilla student 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.
