Tamale Senior High School has established its status as the landlord of the Northern, Region with regard to the National Science and Maths Quiz, by securing a spot in the finals of this year’s competition slated for October in Accra.
Tamasco outclassed its opponents from Kumbungu SHS, Yendi SHS and WapuliCommunity SHS at the end of the four-round qualifier.
They secured a total of 65 points in that impressive win which left Yendi SHS at a distant second position with 13 points. WapuliCommunity SHS garnered 06 points while Kumbungu SHS ended up with negative 3 points.
The school which is starting its 2021 NSMQ campaign from the regional level after failing to reach the quarter-final stage in the previous edition hopes to make a real effort at the trophy this year.
In a separate contest, Kalpohin SHS rose from being underdogs to stun St. Charles Seminary in their contest to book a place in the national tournament.
The school got a rare second chance in the 2019 qualifiers to make its debut in the competition.
That year, they lost their first contest, and all seemed to be over. But then, Bole SHS didn’t turn up for their contest, and that gave the Tamale-based school a chance to contest in the former’s stead, owing to the latter’s status as the highest-scoring but losing school in 2019 qualifiers.
Also on the first day of the 2021 Northern Regional qualifiers, Tamale Islamic SHS and Business SHS won their respective contests to become part of the four schools which join the already seeded Northern School of Business, to confirm their qualification to the national tournament in Accra.
