Two fan clubs in Accra have qualified to participate in the semi-final of the National Junior Graphic Fan Club Spelling Competition.
Falsyd Foundation School and Family Life International School, both at New Achimota, Accra, came first in separate contests at the knock-out stages of the competition when they beat winners from the other competing groups in Accra.
The first school to qualify was the Family Life International School which had hosted the other schools in their group.
The keenly contested competition saw the host school win with 48 points at the end of the competition which attracted spontaneous music and dance from students of the school.
When other students who were in their classrooms heard the good news about the sweet victory, they all rushed to the school compound where the contest took place to participate in the victory celebration.
The other members in that group were the Early Bird School, Taifa Burkina, which placed second with 46 points, Gbawe Montessori, Gbawe, came third with 44 points and Shine Education Centre, Abokobi Boi, placed third with 29 points. The contest was obviously a very competitive one indeed.

That left Emmanuel Excellence Academy placing fourth with 46 points.
With 42 points , the Prince of Peace Presbyterian School, Tema, took the fifth position.
