The construction of a block of pre-primary classrooms, four toilets and two storerooms at the Môreson Special School in Windhoek has been completed.

The block, which was built by the Namibian government with funding from the European Union, (EU) was inaugurated on 12 November.

The school is home to 175 learners and has seen tremendous changes in learners over the years.

The deputy minister of education, arts and culture, Faustina Caley, commended the school's efforts in regard to inclusive education.

“It is unbelievable to notice the many projects that you have embarked upon to provide opportunities to children with special needs for them to experience a sense of self-worth and to contribute to the overall development of the country in their way,” she said.

She added that the new centre will give learners the opportunity to master their developmental skills and early learning, related to various developmental domains.

Addressing the guests and learners, the governor of Khomas Region Laura Katjirua said these education facilities consist of more than just the physical structures.

“It is rather an integral component of the condition of teaching and learning and a place of experience to create an educational social climate for the learners, educators and community at large,” she said.

The school’s principal, Anita Kreft, said it takes time to see change within the learners and it does not happen overnight.

She thanked the ministry and all stakeholders who played a role in the construction.
