WINDHOEK, 20 OCT (NAMPA) – The Moses Garoeb Project Primary School in Windhoek’s Havana informal settlement has been renamed after late Minister of Education, Abraham Iyambo.
The project school was established in 2012 with 12 tents, 14 teachers and 470 learners.
Due to a high demand for school space in the Moses Garoeb Constituency, the school is now accommodated in prefabricated structures consisting of 30 classrooms and mini-administrative block.
The Dr Abraham Iyambo Primary School has 1 792 learners in Grades 1 to 5.
In a speech read on her behalf at the renaming ceremony on Friday, Khomas Region Governor Laura McLeod-Katjirua said despite economic challenges, the government remains committed to implementing and enforcing policies and interventions aimed at the attainment of academic excellence at all levels.
“The late Iyambo was very passionate about education and was known for his slogan that we must ‘deliver, deliver, and deliver’ with speed, because he did not want to see any child without a good education,” she said.
Iyambo was Minister of Education from 2010 until his death on 02 February 2013.
His brother Andima Iyambo, in a speech delivered on his behalf, said the family believes the Dr Abraham Iyambo Primary School will be a pillar of strength for the entire family.
The family donated a computer and sports equipment.
