Established in 2017, Zealous Tutorial Centre in Rundu was started in response to a large demand for affordable education. “Despite Zealous being a private school, community members are beginning to realise that the school is not only there for money, but we are looking at catering for the number of learners who are from poor backgrounds,” acting principal Samuel Kwandu said.
“Currently, the school assists parents have lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.
The school offers opportunity to learners who would like to improve their grade 11 and grade 12 results, and also offers extra classes to grade 10 learners to prepare them for external examinations.
Currently, the school has registered a total of 1 595 students, which is a combination of grade 11s and 12s, including those who have registered for grade 10 extra classes. The institution employs 29 teachers and 11 staff members.
“We are aiming to be centre of academic excellence in terms of performance and academic achievements. We deliver quality tutorials, teach with love and passion and serve Namibian learners with the best educational concepts,” Kwandu said.
Although the school planned on serving the community, one of the challenges Kwandu and his team have experienced was getting the community to believe in the school.
“Our plan is to continue offering quality education to every Namibian child and to make quality education accessible, even to those who are from poor backgrounds, so that one day they can achieve their tertiary dreams and to unleash their potential,” he said.
