Omuntele school opens

 

Teachers and learners of the Reverend Juuso Shikongo High School at Omuntele in the Oshikoto region have finally moved into their new school. 
 
The opening of the new school was postponed three times last year, due to the contractors who failed to complete work on time. 
 
The first intake spent the whole of last year at the nearby Uukule Senior Secondary School. 
 
The school, including a hostel, were built at a cost of 120-million dollars in line with the government policy of expanding schools in the country. 
 
The school started last year with 105 learners for Grade Eight and Eleven, while Grade Ten will follow next year. 
 
Principal Pineas Ekongo praised the Education Ministry and the community for their support, especially the materials for teaching and administration. 
 
This year, the school has 197 learners, seven teachers and several institutional workers.
