The Ministry of Education has put intervention measures in place for schools and their learners in the Omusati region which has been affected by recent floods.
In a statement released this week, Alfred Ilukena, permanent secretary at the education ministry, said that the Ministry is aware of the floods, particularly its impact on schools and their day-to-day activities, and is determined to address the needs of the schools.
“Intervention measures put in place includes relocation, provision of tents, blankets, mattresses, mosquito nets and hygiene kits amongst others,” he said.
Ilukena added that although Omusati is the most affected region, the Ministry is also aware of the flood threats in the other northern regions, such as the Oshana, Oshikoto, Ohangwena, Kavango and Caprivi regions.
He further reminded regional education directors to monitor the situation in their respective regions and take appropriate decisions and discretionary intervention where lives are at risk.
“The education directorates are once again reminded to work as part of the regional government as they address this threat. The Ministry’s head office should be kept informed at all times on changes in the teaching and learning conditions in schools,” Ilukena said.
