Flamingo Secondary School’s science department gets boost from Namport
The Flamingo Secondary School in Walvis Bay recently received a donation of science kits valued at N$34,000 from the Namport through its social investment fund.
Receiving the donation, principal of the school, Tessa Goagoses said that upon joining the school last year, she realized the need for science kits for the Grade 10 Physical Science learners during their practical examinations and that the lack of these essential tools were a stumbling block to the progress of the learners.
Speaking at the handover, Namport’s Executive Commercial, Immanuel Hanabeb highlighted that such donations are not only an addition to the school but it is a direct investment in the Namibian child who will be practically exposed to these types of apparatuses.
“When your science teachers are demonstrating, you will now be able to see what chemical reaction form when they add a bit of potassium nitrate to a bit of hydrogen or calcium. At Namport we believe that Education is the greatest enabler, education helps us and equalizes the community,” Hanabeb said.
In addition, Namport, will purchase chemicals for the science kits valued at N$5000 next year when the current stock is finished.
The Namport Social Investment Fund focuses on four pillars of entrepreneurship, environment, health and education.
