“ Die berge, gras en al die bome; vertel die roem van onse skool”
With the words of our school anthem we welcome you!
Through 60 years of proud history, O.S.S has formed the futures of thousands of Namibians. We still have that dream to prepare young Namibians to be successful adults in a multi-cultural and inclusive environment.
We want to open and expand young minds to cope with the expectations and demands of a young and independent nation in Africa.
O.S.S offers a wide range of subjects and extra-curricular activities. A state of the art e-learning centre provides research facilities to learners and makes interactive teaching in all subjects possible. We greet you with our proud motto “Amino et fide”-Yours in education - Rina Goldbeck (Principal).
We end Term 3 of 2017.
It is with great gratitude in my heart that I can report that the second term of 2017 was completed successfully in spite of many threats. I thank all the parents for their unconditional support and especially B2Gold for their ongoing financial support. Without our external stakeholders we would not be possible to shoulder the financial burdens of OSS.

PASCH FIT SCHOOL BY GOETHE INSTITUTE OF NAMIBIA!!!
Otjiwarongo Secondary School has been elected as a Pasch Fit School by the Goethe Institute of Namibia! This is a huge honour which means that the German department of our school will receive substantial support from the Goethe Institute already during 2017 and in the future. During 2017 two classrooms will be renovated with state of the art technology to teach German as a Foreign and First language. From 2018 onwards, the DaF learners of our school will also be able to enrol for the internationally accredited A1/2 DSD examinations. Courses in the didactics of German as a Foreign Language, will be attended regularly by the Pasch teacher of our school. Learners of Otjiwarongo Secondary School will thus be able to enjoy the benefits of modern scientific teaching methods while being in a motivational, young and technological environment. Our school will also become a hub of experience and motivation for surrounding schools in the north of Namibia. We enthusiastically look forward to this beneficial agreement between the Goethe Institute and Otjiwarongo Secondary School!
