Namport furnishes school

Walvis Bay

Namport, through the Namport Social Investment Fund (NSIF), recently donated 300 chairs and 300 desks valued at N$163 848 to the Onawa Secondary School after the school asked for assistance late last year.

The need for additional furniture became evident after the school, due to its outstanding performance last year, witnessed an influx of learners from surrounding towns and villages.

The school has over 800 pupils enrolled for the 2021 academic year.

Speaking at the handing over, governor of the Omusati region Erginus Endjala commended Namport for their assistance to the Omusati region. At the same time, he urged the learners to “take good care of the furniture so that future generations can benefit from this donation”.

Handing over the desks and chairs to the school, NSIF trustee Amos Shiyuka challenged other schools to follow the excellent example set by the Onawa Secondary School in terms of academic performance and dedication to a better future displayed by the leaners at the school.

The minister of education and culture Ester Nghipondoka, could not hide her pleasure about the donation, and applauded the learners for achieving outstanding grade 10 results in the 2020 external examination despite the challenges faced in the education sector.

Other sponsors such as August 26 and the Red Cross Namibia followed suit by donating a hostel block and ablution facilities, hand sanitizers and cleaning materials, respectively.

In the past financial year (2018/2019), Namport has invested N$1.1 million in the education system countrywide.
In other news, the NSIF will inaugurate two classrooms which were constructed at a cost of N$300 000 in the Five Rand Primary School in the Otjozondjupa region in March.
