A team from Citi FM on Wednesday, July 7, 2021, visited the Queensland International School in Sakumono, Accra, as part of efforts to interact with students across the country and encourage them to participate in this year’s edition of The Literacy Challenge.
Students of the school are determined to win the bragging rights this year.
A second-year Junior High School student of the school, Selorm Kudomor is very confident he will emerge as the winner of this year’s challenge.
He says he is elated to be granted the opportunity to contribute to the conversation on fixing Ghana, adding that “I am very confident of winning this year’s competition.”
Highlighting areas that need fixing in the country, Selorm said, “the double-track system needs to be phased out.”
Nhyira Baah-Danqua, who has already submitted her essay believes her manifesto will catch the eye of the examiners.
