Namibia Media Holdings (NMH), together with its publications Republikein, Namibian Sun, Allgemeine Zeitung, Windhoek Express, Erongo and Ewi lyaNooli, is proud to present the third edition of the #Festival.

The festival will take place at the Windhoek Showgrounds from 5 to 7 June.

The first edition of the festival was a huge success in 2017 and this year the #Festival will take place under the theme ‘Sharing skills with all generations’.

There will be a career exhibition and throughout the festival speakers from different career paths will deliver presentations relevant to their fields of proficiency. Some of the questions to be answered at the career exhibition are as follows:

1.Have you researched graduate programmes?

2.Do you know what is involved in the application process?

3.Does every graduate or professional school require an entrance exam?

4.Can you afford it?

5.Where do I go for funding for my studies?

Sport will again be a focus area for scholars and coaches. A coaching clinic will be conducted by high-profile, international soccer, rugby, hockey and netball coaches.

The scholars will also be able to test the skills they acquire at the coaching clinics, with skill activities and community games to be played.

About 10 000 grade 10, 11 and 12 learners and parents from all corners of Namibia are expected to take part and attend the various presentations aimed at career development. Exhibitors will comprise of institutions of higher-learning both in Namibia and abroad, financial institutions, embassies as well as other stakeholders in education, who will showcase the different career and study options available, as well as all the relevant information.

Nine franchises were identified from all corners of Namibia - the Delta Lions, Windhoek Saints, Pioneers Warriors, Coastal Dolphins, Etosha Ravens, Canyon Rangers, Oshana Patriots, Highveld Cheetahs and Arabian Knights.

Unlike the previous year, this year the focus will be on sports clinics. Each group will have a combination of 32 learners, including their coaches in different sport codes. In total there will be 38 members per team.

They will attend sport clinics over the two days of the festival, which will be facilitated by experienced sporting personalities. The aim is to engage the learners through sport and to empower them with the latest skills in the different sports codes.

Other activities that are lined up to take place are the Miss High School and choir competitions, which are both taking place during the duration of the #Festival.
