With the conclusion of the Primary Schools last Friday,the MSSDPP Organiser continues with the Secondary Schools which started from yesterday. To my knowledge from the feedback I received from some teachers, the Boys category will be played over 8 rounds while the Girls category will be played over 7 rounds. Three rounds were completed as of yesterday and the remaining rounds will be played until 2 pm today.
The pre-tournament favourites in each category as listed below:
