A Class Six pupil of Supreme Saviour International School at Tanoso in the Kwadaso Municipality of the Ashanti Region has emerged the winner of the 62nd Independence Day Essay Writing Competition.
Joyce Asamoah Boateng beat seven other pupils at the finals of the competition.
The contestants selected for the grand finale were from seven schools in the region, and were made to write an essay on an Independence Day celebration they had witnessed.
In the end, the story of Joyce Asamoah Boateng of Supreme Saviour International School was selected as the best, and she was subsequently adjudged winner of the competition.
The seven schools, which went to the finals, were the SNNIT Presbyterian Model School, Vicande School, UNISCO International School, Supreme Saviour International School, Saint John of the Cross International School and Radco School.
The essay competition, organised under the auspices of Barbara Asher Ayisi, former Deputy Minister of Education, was to test the knowledge and understanding of pupils for all primary and junior high schools in the Ashanti Region.
In 2018, Supreme Saviour International School emerged champions in a football match competition organised by Metro Sports for the Kumasi Metro schools, and took home a trophy as their prize.
The Proprietor encouraged students to concentrate on their studies, and implored teachers to work harder knowing that students have been entrusted to their care.
The Supreme Saviour International School was founded in 1992 by Bishop Moses Gyawu.
It is one of the grade ‘A’ schools in the Ashanti Region and among the best performing schools in the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE).
