WINDHOEK, 10 JUN (NAMPA) – The government of Japan through its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects last week handed over four classrooms and a storeroom to Augeikhas Primary School in Windhoek.
The facilities were constructed at a cost of N.dollars 697 096.
In his statement availed to the media on Monday, Japan’s Ambassador to Namibia, Hideaki Harada said the people of Japan, through the embassy, learned that there was a shortage of classrooms at the school, which forced some learners to attend school in the afternoon.
“This can be tough as it is more difficult to concentrate in the afternoon, it can also be unsafe, especially during winter when the sun sets before learners get home. To improve this situation, the people of Japan decided to provide your school with four classrooms,” said Harada.
He said 140 Grade 3 learners who were previously taught in the afternoon, will now be able to attend school in the morning.
“They will be taught in permanent classrooms, which offer a much more conducive learning environment,” he said.
Harada urged the learners to study hard so they can one day get the chance to visit or study in Japan.
