Hardap will hold its first ever Education Conference from June 27-30 in a bid to investigate the poor performance of the Grade 10's in that region.
Hardap Governor Katrina Hanse-Himarwa told The Villager today that the conference will involve all stakeholders in education and many others to 'do a soul searching on why the Grade 10 examination results in the region has remained so poor.'
The Hardap Region performed dismally in the last three years of the Grade 10 Junior Secondary Certificate (JSC) examinations, ending in the last spot from 13 regions consecutively.
Himarwa-Hanse said they want to involve educators, parents, teachers, psychologists, politicians, business people and all others who can make a contribution, to find solutions to what she regards as a 'serious and worrying phenomenon.' The conference will be held Mariental.
