Ghana Christian International High wins The Junior Sharks competition

Christian High, last weekend on TV3 beat DPS International in the final of The Sharks – Juniors.

The keenly contested final saw the two teams brandish their brainpower against themselves and sometimes against the host, Patrick Kwabena Stephenson.

Christian High for the victory won a cash prize, fully paid trip to the beautiful Zain lodge, laptops and tablets, science and multimedia sets for the school laboratory. Contestants from both schools will represent Ghana at the International Junior Science Olympiad in Doha, Qatar later this year.
