St. Augustine’s College in Cape Coast, Central Region, has won the 2019 edition of the National Science and Maths Quiz.

In Thursday’s final, St. Augustine’s College nudged off five-time champions Presbyterian Boys’ Senior High School (PRESEC), Legon and defending champions St. Peter’s Senior High School, Kwahu Nkwatia, Eastern Region.

St. Augustine’s College led in all the five rounds and ended with 39 points with Presec bagging 34 points and St. Peter’s managing 25.

“At end of the fifth round, here are the final scores: St. Peter’s had 25 points, Presec, Legon had 34 and St. Augustine’s College had 39 points,” quiz mistress Dr Elsie Kuaffmann announced at the National Theatre in Accra.

She added: “As far as I am concerned, you are all champions but I have to make some distinctions. St. Peter’s, you have done very well, congratulations but today was tough, the Egyptians were too strong for you. Never mind you have eared GHS1,500 GCB Bank money zone.

“Presec, Legon, congrats as well, you have done very well but the opposition was great for you. Nonetheless, you have earned GHS2,000 in the GCB Bank money zone.

“St. Augustine’s College, congrats on winning the contest, you did it. You have earned GHS 2,340.”

At a point in the competition, Dr Kauffman had to remind the representatives of Presec to take their time to answer the questions, as they were getting answers that ordinarily, a Presecan would have scored, wrong.

“Patience is sometimes a virtue,” she advised the Presecans.
