Prime Minister Hage Geingob says education is a cornerstone for skills development and a priority for economic growth, adding that it is the improvement of the living standards of the citizens.
Geingob made the remark at the highly anticipated Hardap Education Conference today in Region’s Capital, Mariental.
The conference themed ‘Hardap Grade10 Striving for Academic Excellence is a platform for the region’s education stakeholder to identify the causes of high failure rate of the Grade 10 learners and decide on ways to improve the situation.
“It is paramount that we pay special attention to the performance of our learners. This conference therefore comes at an opportune time where we need to interrogate the issue of academic performance of our learners,” Geingob adds
Geingob further advises that several facts need to be considered when analysing the perpetual poor performance of a large number of our Grade 10 students across the country.
“If we are keen to induce the culture of academic excellence in our learners, than we need to ensure that we are providing them with the essential tools for success,” says Geingob.
The PM also indicated that the government will continue to play a major role in enhancing the quality of education for all students in the country.
The three-day-long conference, first of its kind in the country will end tomorrow, 13 July 2013, as it officially started yesterday.
