KHORIXAS, 30 NOV (NAMPA) School infrastructure remains a critical issue on Namibias social agenda for a number of reasons, among them the highly unequal access to quality facilities.
This was said by Ned Sibeya, the acting chief of National Development Advice Department for Monitoring, Evaluation and Development Partners Coordination in the National Planning Commission, in an interview with Nampa when the Namibia-German Special Initiative Programme (NGSIP) handed over a number of projects in the Kunene Region recently.
One of the projects was the renovation of three classroom blocks at the Cornelius Goreseb Senior Secondary School (SSS) in Khorixas.
The classrooms were rehabilitated at a cost of N. dollars 3 million.
Receiving the keys to the classrooms, Director of Education in Kunene, Angelina Steenkamp thanked the NGSIP for reaching out to Kunene.
As a ministry we dont have enough funds to reach out to every corner where there are needs and we therefore rely on stakeholders to assist, Steenkamp said.
Cornelius Goreseb SSS Principal, Ndjizuvee Haakuria promised that the renovated classrooms will be well looked after.
He told this agency the school is busy lobbying for financial support to renovate the other classrooms.
Some of the teachers have also contributed financially to renovate the staff room, he said.
