Mfantsiman Girls’ Senior High School beats Yaa Asantewaa Senior High School to emerge winner at the 23rd National Senior High School Debate held at the Great Hall of Kwame Nkrumah University for Science and Technology (KNUST) on Friday.
Mfantsiman Girls who emerged winner for the Southern sector came to the competition with the sole purpose to crush their opponents from the Northern sector in a competition to test which school had the best oratory skills.
The Motion for the debate was “Technology makes humans physically and mentally dormant.” Mfantsiman Girls Senior High School spoke against the motion, while Yaa Asantewaa supported it.
Adwoa Serwaa Amanfo and Emmanuella Acquah, principal and supporting speakers, respectively, advanced strong points to make their case.
“It is unacceptable to manufacture a gadget that takes away people’s daily bread and further aggravate their pain by making them mentally and psychologically unstable. If my opponent believes the loss of the job of a person does not make her dormant, perhaps, they should find a stronger word for that”, the Principal speaker said.
“As students depend more on a calculator and other technologies and lose the ability to solve simple mathematic problems”, the supporting speaker seconded.
Ida Blankson and Winifred Larbi who represented the Coastal ladies countered claims by their opponents.
“Who produces technology? Is it not man? How is it produced? It involves two key processes, they are; design and implementation of the design. If a man does this, what makes him mentally and physically dormant”, she added.
Results announced by the three judges showed the ladies from the coast had proven superior.
At the end of the competition, Mfantsiman Girls emerged winner with an average of 78 points, while yaa Asantewaa scored 63 points.
The contestants each took home a laptop computer and certificate.
The Ashanti Regional Director of Education, Mary Owusu Afriyie commended the debtors and their teachers for the sterling performance.
