St Peters has officially become the first to answer four out of four riddles correctly since the inception of the GOIL Riddle Bonanza award.

NSMQ heavyweight, St Peter’s SHS (NSMQ 2000, 2005 & 2018 Champions), made history today at the R.S.  Amegashie Auditorium, University of Ghana by answering all four riddles in the final round correctly. They become the first to achieve this feat in the 2020 edition of the NSMQ.
