    Sunyani Senior High School (SUSEC) has emerged as the 2024 Bono-Ahafo Zonal Champion in the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ). They defeated two-time champions St. James Seminary SHS, along with Our Lady of Mt. Carmel SHS and Kintampo SHS, to secure their first regional trophy.

    In the previous regional championship, St. James Seminary had defeated Sunyani SHS by a large margin. However, this year, SUSEC was determined and focused on winning the ultimate prize.
