Pope John SHS has been sent packing from the ongoing National Science and Maths Quiz competition by Jachie Pramso SHS at the one-eighth stage.

Jachie Pramso led the contest with 35 points beating fellow contenders Zion College who had 34 points and Pojoss with 29 points.

This is the second time in a row the best all-male institution in the Eastern region is losing out to a lesser-known school in the competition as it suffered the same fate at the hands of Ghana National School in 2016.

Jachie Pramso will go on to compete with other schools such as Holy Child, Wesley Girls and more who have qualified from this round unto the next stage of the competition.

The aim of the National Science & Maths Quiz is to promote the study of the sciences and mathematics, help students develop quick thinking and a probing and scientific mind about the things around them.
