THE Hans Daniel Namuhuja Senior Secondary School had their annual prize giving ceremony for the top achievers of the Namibia Senior Secondary Certificate (NSSC).
Speaking at the ceremony, Namibia Chamber of Commerce Industry (NCCI) Northern Chairperson, Thomas Iindji, said education starts at home and parents are the first professors in the education fraternity, as they mold, shape and prepare the children in all aspects of development to face the world and embrace what it could offer
“Our teachers are the second parents. They panel beat us to fit the scientific parameters put in place by those who spent many years researching how best a learner can be prepared academically,” said Iindji.
According to Iindji, the African Union’s blue print and master Plan to transform the continent through Agenda 2063, demands that Africa invest in education and capacity building, through which each nation can inculcate a culture of peace, equality, and sustainable development.
“I know, economic equality is a big challenge in our country, but please remember, never let bad circumstances determine your future. Africa has long held on to a mindset infested by inferiority complex,” citied Iindji.
Iindji noted that some of the learners may still be living in the villages, but the kept motivated to think and reasons to sense the hardship and prompt them to yearn and reach out for better.
He dared the learners to study and earn themselves out of anywhere into anything, for knowledge is power, and it’s the kind of power that can move mountains for you.
Furthermore, Paulus Homateni Nakawa, former learner and now the Secretary General together with other executive members of the Koneka Social Club at Oshakati, has donated an amount of N$ 3000 towards your school’s sport activities.
Iindji stated that the aim of the donation is for the learners to partake in sport in order to promote unity, socialization, peace and harmony as well as improve on their studies.
