Pupils from Primary One to Six are expected to battle it out for the ultimate prize.

Pupils of primary 2A, 2B and 2F were the first to take the big stage followed by another competition between primary 2C, 2D and 2E.

According to Napoleon de Graft Etsison, Deputy Head of KNUST Primary School, the 5TH annual inter-classes quiz competition is geared towards giving students a break from traditional classroom learning.

“To reinvent the educational system and give pupils a break from traditional classroom learning, there is a dire need to revive the quiz culture in our schools.

“In addition, technology can act as a facilitator by bringing innovation to quizzes and ensuring active participation amongst pupils,” he noted

He believes quizzes redefine the educational system in significant ways.

“In the educational context a quiz serves as a brief assessment to gauge the skills, abilities, and knowledge of pupils

“This will help to redefine the educational system in significant ways,” he emphasized.

Kwesi Anyan Akoni Ampah, Alitz Kofi Adjei and Jael Yaa Amoah of primary 2B won the first competition.
