ONAMULUNGA, 18 FEB (NAMPA) – A former Swapo member of the National Council (NC) and now businessman, Nico Hosea Kaiyamo says education will advance and produce results when all stakeholders play their respective roles.
“Education is a shared responsibility and it should not be left to the government alone,” he said while handing over N.dollars 13 000-worth of building materials to the Onamulunga Combined School (CS).
He pointed out that he donated the fencing building materials through his company, Kaiyamo Fresh Produce, with the believe that it will go a long way to create a conducive teaching and learning environment at the school.
Kaiyamo went on to encourage the community of Onamulunga CS to be dedicated in ensuring progress in the performance of the school.
Principal of the school, Immanuel Namupolo told Nampa that his school recorded a 91 per cent Grade 10 pass rate in 2013 before going down to 83 per cent in the same grade last year.
Situated on the outskirts of Ondangwa, the Onamulunga CS has 18 teachers looking after a population of 450 learners from pre-primary level to Grade 10.
“It is an old school established in 1925 as a missionary school,” Namupolo explained.
He pointed out that Kaiyamo’s donation of fencing materials will help prevent animals from invading the school grounds.
Kaiyamo’s former colleague in the NC, Philemon Ndjambula, also contributed N.dollars 1 000 to the coffers of the Onamulunga CS at the same occasion.
Ndjambula is the former Oshikoto regional councillor for the Olukonda Constituency, under which the Onamulunga CS falls.
