Ekangolinene Combined School seeks assistance after windstorm damage

A group of 94 Grade 3 pupils at Ekangolinene Combined School in the Omusati region are currently being taught in makeshift classrooms after a windstorm caused damage to a block of three classrooms in early February.

Speaking to The Namibian this week, school principal Dascan Mushabati said the classroom block was occupied by Grade 3 classrooms, with a tuckshop in between.

Two classrooms have been moved to the school hall, which was built by the community, and another group is being taught in the school library, he said.

“So, teaching and learning is continuing.”

Mushabati said the damage is estimated at around N$700 000, inclusive of labour.

“The roof is completely blown off and part of the wall is cracked and it will need to be fixed also. We are appealing to the business community and all the education stakeholders for any assistance to help us fix our classrooms. They can contact the directorate or the school directly,” he said.
