Dr Emmanuel said the prize of $1000 was instituted by the board of governors for students who could record A's in all their WASSCE papers, with the aim of encouraging them to surpass expectations.

“Over the years, a lot of Topfaith students came quite close to clinching the award, scoring 8 A1’s, but falling short of one to get the prize,” an excerpt from the chairman's statement posted on the school's Facebook page reads.

He went on to admonish students to emulate Valour, adding that the 16-year-old enjoyed a tuition-free academic excellence scholarship instituted by the school for the best students in each of the classes from JS1 to SS3.
