New digs for Omaheke school

07 July 2019 | Education

Thanks to the International School of Paris that raised nearly N$500 000, a dormitory at the Omuhaturua Primary School in the Omaheke Region is being constructed.

So said project member Jack Wessel while paying a courtesy visit to President Hage Geingob earlier this week while in the company of teachers and learners from that school as well as the French Ambassador, Claire Bodonyi.

During the meeting, Wessel said that the group would spend three weeks building the dormitory that will accommodate about 50 learners at the school.

“The school has seen more learners coming in because they want to receive an education, but the dorms are full, so our idea is to build new dorms,” he said, adding that the group would be teaching classes and spending time with the local community to learn local languages.

Upon enquiry by Nampa, Education Director in the Omaheke Region, Pecka Semba, said the school has 1 307 learners, of which 202 are accommodated in the 180-person capacity dormitories. “The construction and renovations have been approved and renovations to the dining and recreation area have already begun,” he said.
