“ 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 - (Principal).
We end Term 1 of 2019.
The school has reached the end of another successful first term and I would like to make use of this opportunity to thank you for your generous support you have given both to your child and the school. Attached to this letter is a summary of your financial contribution towards the voluntary Parent Support Fund. It is becoming increasingly difficult to manage with the limited funds allocated and therefore we appreciate your willingness to ensure that your child receives value added education.
We are looking forward to a German Cultural Day, which will be held at Otjiwarongo Secondary School on 18 June 2019. Some of the highlights include a performance by the choir of the St. Christophorus-Kantorei from Germany who are visiting Namibia with 50 singers. Learners from our school will present a theater play, which is directed by Ms. Birgit Hausladen, and the Goethe Institute will host an exhibition concerning German History under the theme “The Power of Feelings”.
Pastor Steve Graham is organizing a huge Gospel Concert on 28 June in the School Hall. The theme is “His Passion” and many of the Learners and the Choir of this School will participate at this event. We would like to invite all of you to attend these events.
FUND RAISING CAMPAIGN
The school has already launched the annual fundraising campaign for 2019. Please support your child in this venture. If every learner manages to collect only N$ 150.00 then we will be able to continue with the maintenance and upgrading of the facilities of OSS.
The money raised in 2018 has been used for various
smaller projects and to fix the leaking roofs of the School Hall and the
Gymnasium, as well as painting some of the classrooms. The school plans on
continuing with these two projects with the money raised in 2019.
I would like to address the following issues we have encountered during this term and would appreciate it if you could take these up with your children.

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 onward, the DaF learners of our school will also be able to enroll for the internationally accredited A1/2 DSD examinations. Courses in the didactic 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!
