Nine all-girls’ schools made it through to the final stages of the all-round Sharks academic competition. This, after the schools went through a grueling Zonal prelims held online through Zoom courtesy the test platform, eCampus.

The zonal prelims which was initially scheduled to happen physically had to be moved online as a result of the increasing Covid-19 cases across the country.

The Executive Director of Africa Schools Online, organizers of the competition, Abel Ohene Acquaye, stated how impressed he was with the turnout. But for a few technical challenges experienced by a few schools, the program went on rather smoothly. The teams had to answer fifteen questions on Literacy, Numeracy, STEM, and Social Literacy under 5 minutes.

The timed exams meant the schools had to have their skills, knowledge, strategy, and temperament at the highest level.

In the end, Opoku Ware School came out tops with 11 points, followed by Ghana Christian International High and Kumasi Anglican Secondary School with 8 and 7 points respectively. St. Louis Senior High, Wesley Girls High School (Cape-Coast), Archbishop Porter Girls, and Kumasi Girls Senior High were some of the high-scoring all-girls’ schools that made it to the finals.

All twenty-four schools made it through the zonal qualifiers and will join the four ranked schools from last year: Presec – Legon, Mawuli School, Keta Senior High and St. Thomas Aquinas School who qualified courtesy placing top four in last season. The twenty-eight schools will battle it out later in the National Prelims for the coveted trophy as Sharks champions.
