MRA winds up School Quiz competition in style

On Thursday, 25th May 2023, MRA held the last two rounds of the MRA Quiz Competition to identify the champions. After a fierce battle of supremacy, Chichiri Secondary School emerged the champions after outpacing their rivals, Zingwangwa Secondary School.

Stella Maris Secondary School beat Njamba Secondary School to clinch the third position. The last two sessions of the quiz competition were conducted under tense but very colourful atmosphere at Crossroads Hotel in Blantyre.

MRA launched the quiz competition in November 2022 in order to promote the learning of taxation in schools and at the same time identify the information and knowledge gaps learners have on the subject. Taxation is examinable at national level.

Sixteen secondary schools participated in the quiz: eight from Blantyre and another eight from Lilongwe and was conducted on pilot basis.  Only four schools from Blantyre proceeded to the semifinals.

Speaking at the function, Mc Hizzal Kawanga, Manager Taxpayer Education, thanked all collaborating partners for their unwavering support that resulted in MRA in conducting a very successful quiz competition.

Cheering the audience: Kawanga

He singled out the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology through the South West Education Division, Central West Education, MIE and MANEB for their technical support which enabled the Authority to hold a very vibrant competition for the first time in over twenty years.

“As we wind up the quiz competition today, MRA is highly indebted to you, our collaborating partners, for the enormous support you rendered to us,’’ said Kawanga adding that MRA will soon organize another function to recognize and decorate the students and institutions that exceptionally performed well in the quiz competition.

Speaking on behalf of the South West Education Division (SWED), Mc Peatry Kandio, Head of Quality Assurance Services, hailed MRA for the initiative saying it will help in grooming the young generation into compliant taxpayers for the future and welcomed MRA ‘s proposal to hold another quiz competition in the next academic year.

Expressing her excitement after steering her team to victory, teacher and matron for Chichiri Secondary School, Mary Ng’oma, said she was over the moon for the victory and described the win ‘historic’ as it was her school that scooped the first prize in the competition.

Chichiri Secondary School will receive a K2.5 million cheque for a school project. Zingwangwa and Stella Maris secondary schools will also receive K1.5 million and K500, 000 for a school project respectively, including other prizes for proceeding to the quarter finals.
