Director of education in Oshikoto, Aletta Eises praised both learners and teachers for excelling despite the difficult circumstances in which they often have to operate. “They do not sit and hope, dream and wish and pray without action. For you to be successful in life you should be action driven. You have to go towards your dreams. Dreams will never march to you. You have to march towards your dreams,” remarked Eises.
