The boys from the two schools debated on the motion: “Academic qualification should be a requirement for pastoral ministry”.

Kumasi High’s defense for the motion threw the audience into a frenzy, convincing the judges that pastors needed academic qualification before entering the Gospel propagating ministry.

But Prempeh College’s rebuttals to the motion did not hold.

Over 70 schools went into the contest, displaying great deal of wits in debating ideas for national development.

The skills of research, public speaking, listening, debating and rebuttals have for the past weeks been terrific.
