Onathinge continues to shine

08 January 2018 | Education

The Onathinge circuit in the Oshikoto regional education directorate is the top-performing circuit in the region for last year's grade 10 examination results.

According to the circuit's inspector, Naemi Amuthenu, her circuit has been the top grade 10 performer for the past six consecutive years.

Statistics indicate that the circuit achieved an 85.6% pass rate out of 493 learners who sat for the grade 10 final examination, and only 71 learners could not make it to be promoted to grade 11.

“I would like to express my gratitude to team Onathinge for exceeding the target despite major challenges.

“The year of 2017 was one of the toughest years in education with a major financial crisis, but we managed to excel,” Amuthenu said. Amuthenu added that the circuit worked well as a team with school principals providing leadership at their various schools.

“Our special appreciation goes to all the teachers who gave classes during weekends and holidays without any compensation.

“And also to all the parents for preparing porridge at the schools, and for supervising and catering during examination time,” Amuthenu said.

Onathinge circuit has 13 schools with grade 10 and they are all rural-based.

Onathinge Combined School is the top performing school with 100% pass rate out of 52 learners, followed by Nehale Senior Secondary School with only one failure out of 64 learners.
