The annual National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) is coming back.
The organizers are having to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected everything we regarded as normal.
From next week Tuesday, September 8, the preliminary stages will start. There are some interesting encounters to expect.
There is an Holy Child v Aggrey Memorial v Swedru SHS encounter.
There is also St Thomas Aquinas v St Mary’s v Ghanata face off.
However, ahead of the official start of the competition, it is Dr Elsie Kaufman’s handbag that is gaining attention again.
Three years ago, Dr Elsie Effah Kaufmann‘s handbag became the focus of attention after the NSMQ 2017 grand finale between Prempeh College, Adisadel College and St. Thomas Aquinas at the National Theater in Accra.
When Prempeh was announced as the winner of the NSMQ 2017, jubilant fans beseached the stage and moments later, the quizmistress could not find her handbag.
The missing handbag made headlines as many sympathized with the quiz mistress who had her car keys, id cards and other valuable items in the bag.
When the quiz mistress was photographed at the launch of the NSMQ2020 edition with her hand firmly resting on her bag, Twitter noticed.
For Dr Kaufmann, all the comments were words of caution to avoid a repeat of threes years ago.
Once bitten, twice shy they say.
