"The #NSMQ2023 PRESEC Legon team were picked two years ago after losing to Prempeh College in the 2021 grand finale. It was tough,'' he said.
''The school had a list of Form 1 students' performances, screened roughly 500 students who wrote a series, cut the numbers to 50, and then 11 before we began training for the regional contest.''

Afram further mentioned that after the regional contest, they collaborated with Achimota for trials with other schools from some regions.

After multiple trials, the trio were selected after they proved themselves to be the best. The boys defeated contests from Opoku Ware School (OWASS) and Achimota School to win the eighth NSMQ trophy for PRESEC Legon on Monday, October 30, at the National Theatre in Accra.
