Kunene’s governor connects local school

The Okondaunue Combined School received a donation of ten computers from Kunene regional governor Marius Sheya last week.

Sheya said the school needed the equipment in order to be paired with other schools in terms of information communication technology.

He encouraged teachers to teach learners how to operate the computers. This initiative was made possible by the Namibian Standards Institute.

In a telephonic interview, Sheya said information and communication technology is an integral part of today’s society and preparing the younger generation in this regard is crucial.

He said he chose Okondaunue Combined School because it is a remote school with over 700 learners and needed to be brought on par with other schools in the region.

“I believe the donation will make an impact at the school because the learners will be able to utilise the computers for academic purposes. I also believe the school staff will utilise the computers for administrative purposes which will improve the school’s performance as well,” he said.

Sheya is hopeful about the possibilities that this donation will bring to the school.

Asked whether this was a one-off donation, Sheya dsif it is an ongoing project and this was the second donation. Sheya further stated that he would continue to seek the support and collaboration of the private sector to reach out to as many schools as possible in the region.

He thanked the Namibian Standards Institute for making it possible by donating the ten computers to his office for the initiative.
