GOBABIS: The Omaheke Regional Education Directorate has initiated a Holiday School for its Grade 10s in an effort to improve the overall result of the region in the national examinations.
Omaheke was the worst-performing region during last year’s Grade 10 results.
Over 300 Grade 10 learners, drawn from various schools in the region, are gathered at the Wennie du Plessis Secondary School (SS) for revision classes for all promotional subjects offered in Grade 10.
The Holiday School will run from 17 to 21 August 2012.
Attending the classes are Grade 10 learners who have scored between 16 and 23 points in the April examinations.
Regional Examination Officer, Frans van Wyk, praised the initiative, noting that such initiatives will go a long way in placing the region at shoulder-level with the rest.
