According to the trustee of DMT Chrisna Greeff construction of the new school is expected to start off any time before end of 2015, so they can have a first intake in January 2016.
The school will comprise of eight classrooms, eight dormitories, a school hall, teachers’ accommodation, sports fields, administration offices, kitchen and laundry facilities
Chrisna also added that the school will be able to accommodate more students and the first intake and learners at Nakayale will be for Grades 0 to 2, with fresh intakes of Grade 0 and 1 every year as grades progress up to Grade 7. Phase two of construction will involve setting a secondary school that will accommodate up to Grade 12.
Construction will be carried out on a 50-hectare piece of land acquired from ELCIN’s Western Diocese.
The trustee of DMT has been involved in other construction projects in Namibia and lately, they funded construction of additional classes at Uahekua Herunga Primary.
During the announcement of the project Chrisna said the move to construct the private Academy was to provide a best educational center that will keep the children safe in the rural setup.
