Rundu Christian rewards best performers

27 November 2019 | Education

Rundu Christian Private School recently rewarded its learners who performed well academically this year.

Leaners who obtained 80 percent or more in a promotional subject were rewarded for their outstanding work and according to the school's principal, Angelina Mbudhi, this year's award ceremony demonstrated the commitment of learners and teachers alike.

“I am so proud of what we achieved this year with the learners. The teachers are committed and the learners have expressed their desire to succeed. That is why we reward learners and teachers who continue to contribute to the success of the school,” Mbudhu said.

The school enrolled 172 learners for the 2019 academic year.

Mbudhi said the secret to their success is the upholding of the school's values such as a high level of discipline, constant supervision of learners' work, monitoring their improvement and instilling Christian morals to avoid peer pressure and substance abuse.

Mbudhi said although the school upholds a high level of discipline, parents should also play a role to ensure that they shape their children's behaviour at home, as the burden cannot be borne by schools alone.

Mbudhi said if children are brought up well at home, it allows teachers to focus on educating the learners instead of concentrating on discipline issues.

“You know they say charity begins at home; if the learners are disciplined at home at least you don't work that hard,” she said.

Mbudhi said another factor contributing to the children's good performance is her approach of going through the learners' test results, which are provided to her office.

She explained that if she notices a concern, she engages the teachers to establish the cause of the problem and advises them how to rectify the situation.

“All the class tests, they come to my office. If the child is not improving, I would call in the teacher and question what is happening and ask for them to maybe arrange with the parent to pick up their child a bit later after school so that the teacher can provide a one-on-one session with the learner during that time for improved results,” she said.

Last year the school was ranked as the second-best private school in Kavango East Region and among the top 20 best private schools in the country.

Asked why parents should enrol their learners at the school, Mbudhi said they should consider the low teacher-learner ratio of 19 learners per teacher and the achievements of the school.

“We have a teacher-learner ratio of a maximum of 19 learners per teacher, which means your child will get the necessary attention to understand.

“We use the Namibian school curriculum and our teachers are highly qualified. Last but not least, the impressive performance of our learners in national examinations also speaks for itself,” she said.
