Day of the Namibian Child
The Day of the Namibian Child is celebrated on 28 September. My Zone asked learners at Eros Primary School what makes them proud to be Namibian citizens, and here’s what they had to say.

Being able to go to school and to get free education. And having rights that protect me as a Namibian child. Also being Namibian, you get to express yourself fully without being harmed like in other countries.
I'm proud to be a Namibian child because we as Namibians get to become leaders as we are young, we have the freedom to dream as big as we want. We also have great examples of leaders we look up to.
I am proud to be a Namibian child because I have rights, but with rights comes responsibility. For example, with free education, it is my duty to come to school and do my part.
I am proud to be a Namibian child because it's my country and I am proud to be a part of it because it is an independent country where everybody has equal rights and equal opportunity.
I am proud to be a Namibian child because in this country, we are very diverse. We have more than one culture and this makes Namibia very unique. We bring different things to the table and we learn a lot from each other as a nation.
I am a proud Namibian child because I have a family that loves me and I grew up in a home that teaches me strong values. We live in an independent country and we get to walk around freely, because in some countries there are wars and innocent children die.
