Methodist Girls’ SHS To Receive Rousing Welcome For Winning World Title

The MEGHISS team

Methodist Girls’ High School (MEGHISS) in Mamfe, in the Akuapim North District of the Eastern Region, is planning a rousing welcome for its noble candidates that won the 2019 ROBOFEST Competition held at Michigan in the United States of America.

They won the competition by beating countries like; Korea, Japan, South Africa, U.S.A, Mexico and China.

A group of 10 SHS students including one and two students with two coordinators is expected to arrive in Ghana on Friday, May 24, with an old student who completed the same school last year.

Since winning the Students Advancement of Global Entrepreneurship (SAGE) international competition in Ukraine last year, this is the second time the school has won an international competition placing Ghana’s name back on a high pedestal.

Naomi Edem Kuma, Susan Annorbea Appiah, Sandra Yeboah, Maame Yaaaa Manko Henaku, Ruby Ayerley Tetteh, Nana Ohenewa Frimpong, Catherine Awurama Banson, Alberta Anna Esiambah, Sarah Baaba Grant and two coordinators, Paulina Ansah Captan, the old student and Mr Ben Amoako made Ghana proud on the international scene.

In an interview with GNA shortly after the school was declared as winners, a former headmistress of the school, Mrs Sylvia Laryea, said her continuing accomplishments on the international scene increased the investments of all girls ‘ investments in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Empowerment.

She said because of the strong interest her students displayed in science, the team had googled and encountered the competition in one of its regular studies, and started planning for the National Contest immediately.

She said that they were not successful at the competition, as they did not have enough kicks to progress in robot technology at the Kofi Annan International Peace Training Centre (KAIPTC).

However, she said the school launched a campaign to seek support to get enough kicks for the team and fortunately a parent gave them one while the Methodist Church in Ghana also gave them another one to add “with the two additional kicks, my girls led by the coordinators started an intensive job and that brought us this far.”

“But the passion of teachers, co-ordinators and the students themselves encouraged us to work hard to find the support they needed,” she said, “what a costly enterprise Robotics needed was every aspect of progress.”

The headmaster of the school thanked the Parent-Teacher Association of the Mamfe Traditional Council for their assistance, corporate Ghana, the Ghana Methodist Church, Ghana Education Service (GES) and other well-wishers who helped the school in every point
