fours and they ‘play’ and compete with themselves in a bid to accumulate
the highest points in their respective groups. It is proposed to be an oral

questions and spelling bee. The students are expected to be knowledgeable
of the tricks of ‘tic-tac-toe’, as it would conversely determine the
winners. Two faculties would emerge from each group and migrate to the next
