Ernest Norgbey launches Ashaiman MP's quiz competition

As part of effort to ensure that pupils in Ashaiman take their books seriously and inculcate the habit of learning in them, the Member of Parliament for Ashaiman, Ernest Henry Norgbey has launched the second edition of the Ashaiman constituency inter-schools quiz for schools in the area.

The move according to the Member of Parliament is to whip up the love for books, the joy and satisfaction of learning in the constituency.

About one hundred private and public schools within the constituency are set to take part in the inter-schools quiz competition.

The MP for Ashaiman who launched the event noted that, the inter-schools quiz is a programme that he believed would help raise academic standards within the Ashaiman constituency.

“ Ashaiman, we all know is an area with so many less endowed students and it is about time we initiate programmes to whip up the zeal for books among the students. This is the only surest way in building a brighter future for our future leaders”.

Mr Norgbey noted that “ education is the only key that is able to close the gap between the elite and the down trodden and so as the MP for the area, I believe this is one way to ensure that students fall in love with their books to enable them grow into becoming responsible citizens in future”

The Ashaiman Municipal Educational Director, Rev. Mrs Joyce Orleans Madjitey on her part noted that the quiz would be a springboard to prepare students within the municipality for greater heights in future.

“this quiz competition will be very exciting and I can see all the children are really into it; everybody wants to win. I believe it really came at the right time since it will help them in preparing for their future exams”.

Some of the students from the participating schools who spoke with Citi news were very optimistic of emerging winners. They however promised to study extra hard in ensuring their dreams are fulfilled.

The launch of the second edition of the Ashaiman MP’s quiz saw a fully packed auditorium with students from about one hundred schools within the Ashaiman constituency.

The quiz will last for a period of three months where winners would walk away with cash prizes and some give aways from the MP.

Other educational programmes being rolled out by the MP include the MP’s mock for final year students within Junior High and Senior High Schools within the Ashaiman Constituency.
