ONGWEDIVA, 13 MAR (NAMPA) – The Onathinge Circuit of the Oshikoto Education Directorate remains the best circuit in Grade 10 examination results for the past five consecutive years.
The inspector of education for the circuit, Naemi Amuthenu, revealed this to Nampa earlier this week.
Amuthenu pointed out that 426 out of a total 500 learners who sat for Grade 10 examinations in the circuit last year, were promoted to Grade 11 this year.
“There were only 74 learners who could not make it to Grade 11. That is 14,8 per cent,” Amuthenu boasted, adding that her circuit recorded an 85,2 per cent pass rate in last year’s Grade 10 examination results.
She said it is a huge success for teachers, learners, parents and the entire Onathinge Circuit.
The circuit management has, therefore organised an awards ceremony for Friday at the Amunime Combined School (CS) in the Olukonda Constituency, where the best-performing principals, teachers and learners will be awarded for their contribution towards the circuit’s success.
Education Minister, Dr David Namwandi will be the main speaker during the function of Friday, while Defence Minister Nahas Angula and Environment and Tourism Deputy Minister Pohamba Shifeta will deliver motivation speeches.
