It will be a junior secondary school, and will accommodate learners from Grades Eight to 10.
Construction is estimated to cost over N.dollars five million.
Rosh Pinah is situated some 165 kilometres south of Aus near the Orange River in the far south of the country.
Speaking to Nampa on Thursday, Karas Education Director /Awebahe //Hoeseb noted that the school will have six classrooms, a computer laboratory, science laboratory, administration office and a hall.
He said the need for a new school arose because the Hoeksteen Combined School at Rosh Pinah has limited space for all learners.
It currently has 749 learners and 31 teachers.
The education director explained that his office is now waiting for RoshSkor to approve the piece of land they agreed to build the school on.
RoshSkor Township is a company which manages Rosh Pinah and provides basic services such as water, sanitation and electricity. It is a mining town and does not have a town council.
“Hoeksteen introduced Grade Nine and 10 in 2012 and 2013, and the first intakes for Grade 10 were registered this January,” //Hoeseb said.
He said due to limited classroom space at Hoeksteen, the school uses the platoon system, whereby some learners attend lessons in the morning until 14h00 and others from 14h00 until around 17h30.
“Some parents are already complaining that they do not like the platoon system, because children get out of school very late, hence we want to start a new school and stop the shifts,” the director said.
The new school, for which a name is yet to be decided, will bring to three the number of schools in Rosh Pinah which offer Grade 10.
The Rosh Pinah Academy also offers Grade 10, but their fees are very high for ordinary people, said //Hoeseb.
He added that another motive for constructing a new school is that other Government schools which offer Grade 10 to 12 are in Lüderitz and Keetmanshoop, situated some 293km and 319km away, respectively.
