Mr and Miss Namport 2019 handed over stationery worth N$3 000 to two primary schools recently.

Some of the prizes of this year’s Mr and Miss Namport pageant were gift vouchers sponsored by Waltons Stationers valued at N$1 500, and with the condition the vouchers should be used to purchase stationery for schools of the winners’ choice.



The reigning Miss Namport 2019, Gernoviva Frans, donated her winnings to the Tutaleni Primary School.



Frans, mother of a grade 2 learner, said she knows how easily pencils can get lost.

“There could be parents out there who might not be able to afford stationery for their children. I believe in helping when given an opportunity to do so.”

Principal Josef Dawaseb welcomed the donation and said the school was aware that government is doing its best to assist schools despite budgetary constraints.

“It is commendable that Namport continuously come up with initiatives to lend a helping hand to local schools.”

Mr Namport, Immanuel Hamufungu, gave his prize to the Immanuel Ruiters Primary School, and said he always admired the school.

“Our schools need all the help they can get from members of the community, and I am very grateful that Waltons Stationers has allowed me to give back today.”

Acting principal Marianne Uiras received the donation. She said every cent and donations from good Samaritans are always appreciated at the school that caters for over 1 300 learners.

Both schools use the platoon system through which some learners attend classes as from 12:00 until 15:00 due to space constraints.
