ERONGO SLUMPS TO FOURTH PLACE IN SCHOOL RESULTS




Caroline Kambonga: The Erongo region was rated in third place for educational achievement in 2011, but slumped to fourth place after the announcement of the latest examination results for 2012.

Over the past year Duneside High School in Walvis Bay proved to be the best performing school with respect to the Junior Senior certificate (JSC), while as far as Grade 12 results were concerned Namib High School was top of the list of educational institutions in the Erongo region. Results of the past year indicate there was a better performance by grade 10 learners and a slight slackening in the performance of Grade 12 higher level performers.


It is alleged that there might be room for learners to repeat their classes, preferably those with 20 points may yet be allowed to go back to school, if there is space, said Mark Jacobs, the Deputy Director of the Erongo Education Directorate. Grade 12 ordinary level results are expected to be released shortly.

“We have a big challenge to face in the New Year in terms of improving our performance. This re-quires a higher level of commitment and hard work to ensure that we improve our performance,” Jacobs said. “I would like to congratulate all those schools that improved and learners that did well, and a big thank you to the teachers that were committed to their schools and those that worked hard,” the Deputy Director added. The higher level Grade 12 results were published in the national newspapers yesterday and the JSC results are available at all regional education offices.
