Photos: Opoku Ware School (OWASS) NSMQ Team receives Donation from Movie House Ltd
On Friday evening, Movie House Ltd hosted the Owass NSMQ team to dinner at prestigious Coco Lounge at the Stanbic Heights in Accra.
Movie House Plaza confirmed its Sponsorship package for the team which will be presented later on in the week at the school.
1. 1000 cedis for qualifying to the Quarter final stage.
2. 2500 cedis for qualifying to the Semi Final stage. The Achimota old Students hosted a reception for the Achimota School NSMQ team last night. It was to thank the team, made up of two girls and three boys, for their participation and performance at the contest. Even though they didn’t win, they were confident that this is the beginning of a new era for the School.
The students came with their trainers and parents. They shared their experience and discussed ways of improving performance in the coming years. The OAA thanke the students and their teachers for a good performance. Expecting even better results next year. #motown #Achimota #NSMQ2020
3. 5000 cedis for qualifying for the finals.
Unfortunately the team missed out on an extra GHS10, 000 pledged if they had won the final.
However, Movie House Plaza further gave all the eight members of the team 200 cedis each.
The team handlers were given GHS 500cash and a designer watch each worth GHS500.
The three members of the team who actually represented the team in the NSMQ were each given a designer watch (worth 350) and a brand new Samsung A11 phone each (worth 850 cedis each) totaling about 5000 cedis in all.
They were also treated to some particularly selected sumptuous three course meal and drinks.
The Coco Lounge team was also very excited and appreciative of their achievement, as well as being the first NSMQ team ever to have been hosted at their lounge. Coco Lounge also gave Movie House a 10% discount on the total expenditure as its customer appreciation to the Owass NSMQ team effort.
A particularly touching moment was when a pregnant lady guest requested one of contestant, Richmond (BX677) to touch her tummy because she wants her unborn child to become academically good as he was and also attend Opoku Ware School.
The boys who initially looked tired and nervous eventually relaxed and took the entire lounge by storm, dishing out the unique and typical Owarean celebration dance that was joined, enjoyed and videoed by many guests at the lounge.
Movie House Plaza also surprised them with Coco Lounge’s signature celebration dance and cake.
The Chief Executive of Movie House, Kat. David Amoo-Osae Jnr. (AM108) who is also the Vice-President of the Opoku Ware Old Boys Association (Akatakyie) assured the team of Movie House Plaza’s support in the future and also thanked the team, handlers, school, and headmaster for the gallant and good fight even though they didn’t win the ultimate.prize?
He also told the team that Akatakyie worldwide are very proud of their achievement so far and that more effort will be put into the preparation of the team for next year’s event.
He was in attendance with his PA, Ethel, a Slopsan, NEC Vice Secretary, Kat. Franklin Anane Gyimah (AY239) and Kat.Sarfo Manu (AZ79)
On behalf of NEC I wish to express our deepest appreciation to our Vice President and CEO of Movie House Plaza for this generosity to the team.
