Heavy duty photocopier for even more excellence at Johannes Dohren RC High School

The principal and staff at Johannes Dohren Roman Catholic High School at Farm Doornfeld between Gobabis and the Botswana border, were bowled over when the local branch of one of the banks gave them a heavy-duty photocopier and books for their library.

Principal Monicah Kahitu could not hide her excitement when the Branch Administrator of FNB’s Gobabis branch, Charmaine Mberira, called her to tell her Johannes Dohren RC High School is the recipient of a substantial contribution from the FNB Namibia Holdings Foundation Trust.

The investment consultant at the branch, Johannes Daniel, joined by the Deputy Director of Education in Omaheke, Mr Magone and Mberira, drove to the school to personally present the copier and the books.

At a small ceremony in the school hall, Mberira said “Education is one of the important sectors for the socio-economic development of this country and FNB Namibia has been assisting it through various initiatives and sponsorships. Over the past decade the Foundation has invested more than N$15 million, and this is something we will continue to support. We are delighted to partner with Johannes Dohren RC High School because it allows us, as a corporate to bring resources that enhance the school’s ability to provide quality education, thereby enabling learners to have experiences they otherwise would not receive.”

Deputy Director Magone expressed his gratitude on behalf of the education ministry saying that such initiatives do not go unnoticed. He also encouraged the learners to be committed to their education so that they can later excel in life.
