Three primary schools in Lüderitz last week received and array of safety material and equipment to help the learners prepare to return to face to face teaching within the permitted guidelines. The large donation came from the Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) in addition to the more than N$1.5 million the authority has already contributed to help fight Covid-19 at community level.
Some 1300 Grade 0 to 3 learners at Helene van Rhijn, Diaz Primary and Nautilus Primary will benefit from the large consignment of face shields, sanitiser and spray bottles, together valued at over N$50,000. The donation was received on behalf of the schools by the Lüderitz Mayor, Her Worship Brigitte Fredericks.
