Aggrieved students, old students and teachers of Jachie Pramso Senior High School in the Ashanti Region have sworn by the gods of Ashaley Botwe that they will take on the organisers of the National Science and Maths Quiz for engaging in what they refer to as “unfair questioning”, our checks have revealed.
Jachie Pramso SHS affectionately called JAPASS rose to prominence earlier in the competition when as underdogs, they eliminated Pope John SHS at the round-of-16 stage.
The quarterfinal contest saw them being placed in a contest with two big names, Presbyterian Boys’ SHS (PRESEC), Legon and Keta SHS, a contest that was keenly contested but which PRESEC won.
However, minutes after the contest ended, the teachers and a section of students present called a press conference where they bemoaned the nature of questions that came their way.
Speaking to a section of journalists present, the school’s Public Relations Officer complained bitterly: “We are all in the contest to play and have fun but the madam was just throwing difficult questions at us left, right, front, back, everywhere. At a point, our contestants even wanted to leave the stage but our school chaplain managed to beg them to stay. We will sue them for causing psychological trauma to our students.”
When bombonews.com reminded him that all the three schools had the same difficulty level of questions, he retorted that the other schools had been to the competition several times as compared to Great JAPASS and so the organisers should have cut them some slack.
The school intends to file an appeal at the Supreme Court tomorrow, Monday the 26th of June, to contest their “unfair questioning”, whatever that means. We will let you know what becomes of that.
