Platoon system done with

The school was established in 1996 in response to the growing population in the area after independence. It currently accommodates 1 615 learners from pre-primary to grade 7 with 50 teachers.
The school is located in one of the disadvantaged settlements in Windhoek where the population is rapidly growing. In order to accommodate the dramatically increasing number of learners, the school was forced to follow the platoon system, sacrificing quality education. It is within this background that the government of Japan extended the grant to build a new school block consisting of four permanent classrooms and one store room. The beneficiaries of this new block are 160 learners of grade 1.
Japan's assistance seeks to contribute in doing away with the double session system.
Education is one of the priority areas for the government of Japan in its extension of GGP to Namibia and the Tobias Hainyeko Primary School is the 34th school that has benefitted from Japan's GGP that aims at bringing about direct and immediate impact on the well-being of disadvantaged communities at a grass-roots level by supporting relatively small development projects in areas of local needs such as education, agriculture, health, to be implemented by Non-Profit Organisations and local authorities. Japan has been implementing the GGP in Namibia since 1997. To date, 54 projects have been supported, totally amounting to approximately N$37.5 million.
