WINDHOEK – This 12th consecutive Spring School kick-started on Monday and aims to aid grade 10 and 12 learners and encourage the improvement results amongst learners.
The spring school is being held at the Etosha Secondary School in Tsumeb, the Rundu Secondary School and the Caprivi Secondary School in Katima Mulilo and is a joint initiative between the Michelle Mclean’s Children Trust (MMCT) and Bank Windhoek.
An estimated 400 learners will be benefiting from this initiative this school holiday.
“Education empowers an individual not just with the knowledge of his/her rights but also the capacity to keep learning. An educated population can easily catch up and exploit the potential of the emerging opportunities for progress and economic advancement in the globalized environment,” said Nora Ndopu from Bank Windhoek’s
Marketing and Corporate Communications Department.
She added that the reason behind the partnership is to encourage the further improvement of results of the learners who that have already attended the program.
“Because of the attention and the thorough revision that the teachers give during the Spring School, it benefits the learners a lot and thus they become ready for their final examination. The trainers themselves are experts in the subjects and are selected from a pool of the best teachers,” she said.
According to MMCT’s Education Officer Marietjie Katthage, the Michelle Mclean Children Trust remains committed to the youth of Namibia, improving their quality of life by means of basic education, encouraging them to recognize opportunities.
“Because of the high demand for only higher level subjects, we have once again provided only the best teachers with the most adequate experience and proven record of results,” she said.
