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 1 of 2018

Dear Parents

We have come to the end of the first trimester and can look back on another successful period in Otjiwarongo Secondary School. Once again Otjiwarongo Secondary School managed to keep its position as the top performing school on Higher Level in the Region and still ranks among the best in the Country for the JSC and NSSC Examination in 2017. It is only benefiting that we thank our Lord for guiding us through this time and providing us. we would like to emphasize that this school will always strive to provide education of a high quality to all as encompassed in our Vision and Mission. This can only be achieved with your cooperation and the valued input of the various stakeholders.

The cluster schools in the Otjiwarongo Circuit have, in collaboration with the Inspector of Education, decided to start half an hour later than usual during the second trimester. This follows on a request by the Minister of Education for schools to start later as wintertime in Namibia has been discontinued. Therefore, the Management of Otjiwarongo Secondary School has decided school will start at 7h40 for learners and come out at 13h35 every day.

Tuesdays and Thursdays (07:30-07:50)- Parents who want to visit the Clothes Store must bring the child(ren) along to make sure the clothes will fit.

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!
