However, it was St. John’s School that got the better points to emerge winner after scoring additional five points against four scored by Takoradi SHS.
Prizes were awarded to the competing schools during the BCI Ghana Walk for the Cure.
The three schools were part of six schools that were engaged at the preliminary stage of the competition held on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 at the Regional Education Office, Sekondi.
The event is under the auspices of Breast Care International (BCI), Ghana and the Western Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service.
Dr. Beatrice Wiafe Addai commenting on the event congratulated the three schools for displaying their knowledge about breast cancer and related diseases.
She was particularly happy about the spirited performance put up by the boy’s school in winning the maiden contest.
“I am happy that the boys emerged as the winners. It means that in future no man will divorce his wife because she has breast cancer, no man will drive the wife away from the house because she has breast cancer because you men now understands the problems related to breast cancer. I know the way men love their mothers. This kind of knowledge that you have shown in no doubt shows that the future is going to be brighter,” she noted.
She promised to sustain the event even at the national level since the students have demonstrated that it was an event worth organizing.
