NSMQ has been a favourite show for High School students, especially when a school gets a tragic loss. But this time around NSMQ was more interesting with OLAM .ie. Our Lady of Mercy makes a shocking and mind blowing comeback after a sad tragic loss.
The third and final contest in the NSMQ Greater Accra Region Preliminary Stage saw St. Margaret Mary SHS competing against West Africa SHS and Our Lady of Mercy SHS.
Our Lady of Mercy SHS who was the top runner-up from the first two contests of the day got a second chance at lifting the NSMQ trophy, and they didn’t disappoint! St. Margaret Mary SHS and Our Lady of Mercy SHS battled it out in what could be described as the most emotional yet sterling performance of the day.
Our Lady of Mercy SHS came back stronger in the third contest after their initial loss in Contest Two. They proved to be tough competition for West Africa SHS as they tied in the first round of the contest. In round 4, the room was tensed-up when all three schools tied with 25 points.
