  1. The competition is very good but schools that did not have the field to practices in the games is also left behind. We recommend that schools with no playing ground and equipment should be equip with the necessary equipment to involve all schools in the competition, Almost all the schools have talented students in al the disciplines.Tema Manhean Senior High needs basketball court because we have the skilful players who can play basketball but we lack the court
