ONDANGWA: Ondangwa Town Mayor Leonard Negonga has encouraged learners of the town’s Andimba Toivo Ya Toivo Senior Secondary School (SSS) to acknowledge that they have immense potential and ability to pass with flying colours in the upcoming year-end examinations.
Negonga encouraged the learners on Monday during his visit to the school to donate pens, pencils, rulers and erasers to be used by that school’s grade 12 and 10 learners who are due to start with their end of the year examinations this week.
He also urged the learners to stay focused, study hard and always to ask strength from the almighty God during their study time.
“On behalf of the Ondangwa Town Council and management, I want to present or donate to you some useful paraphernalia that I believe will support you throughout the examination period,” Negonga told the learners whilst handing over the donation.
He described the pens, pencils, rulers and erasers as perfect weapons for “shooting down and counter attacking” the upcoming final examinations of this year.
Negonga then urged all the learners to take their examinations very serious, to study wisely, to be confident, not to panic and to use time optimal.
Andimba Toivo Ya Toivo SSS is one of the old secondary school in northern Namibia. The principal of the school, Waldheim Shapaka, told Nampa at the same event of the donation of paraphernalia that a total of 812 learners are attending classes at that school in grade eight to 12 this year.
A total number of 300 learners sit for the final grade 12 examinations at the school as from Tuesday, while only 52 learners are expected to write grade 10 examinations that are due to start countrywide on Monday.
