The BBC Ghana can confirm that Aburi Girls Senior High School (ABUGISS) will not be taken part in this year’s National Science and Maths Quiz competition.
According to the organizers of the Quiz, ABUGISS announced their withdrawal from the competition just a few hours to its launch on Tuesday, September 1, 2020.
However, new development, therefore, has it that, St. Rose’s Senior High School, which was the highest performing girls’ runner-up from the Eastern Regional Qualifiers, will be taking their place.
Aburi Girls SHS were quite unimpressive at the 2019 edition of the Quiz as they fell at the sword of Kpando Senior High School.
Starting the competition at the one-eighth stage, as they reached the Quarter-final in the 2018 edition, the ladies from the Eastern Region were hoping to avoid the stress of qualifying for the national competition through the regional stages.
The ladies trailed behind Kpando SHS and Kumasi High School in their one-eighth stage contest.
