 namibian children at athletics meeting
POCS Newsletter Term 1 2015

It was with great excitement that we headed into the 2015 school year. This year marks the Perivoli Okonjima Country School’s fifth year, and with every passing year something new gets added to school and something new is achieved. In February 2015, the Perivoli Okonjima Country School entered its very first athletics season!
Since athletics began straight after our long summer holiday, the children and teachers immediately started working with vigour to improve their physical condition, strength and stamina (with one group achieving somewhat better results than the other!). A new long-jump pit and white running track lines across our small football field were a cause for great excitement and also an indication that this was about to get serious.

EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON THAT YOU CAN USE TO CHANGE THE WORLD
At the end of 2013 I said that 2014 was going to be an amazing year. The year started well, but there were some unexpected changes which stretched all of us to our limits. These allowed us to discover our potential as a team and we’re thus ending this year on an amazing note.

Within our infancy - we are only four years old you know, we have watched our children transform in ways unimaginable. They have grown and absorbed every bit of information that was imparted/presented to them.

Looking back at the year, we see our children as little adults. Reflecting on all the changes we have been through, the children have matured tremendously.

The Next Chapter

It was such an inspiring feeling to return to school for our second year! Knowing we made it through with a few obstacles but nothing that could not be overcome. 2012 is flying buy at an alarming rate. We have already had 2 terms filled with daily progress as well as many challenges. We remain undaunted and excited.

We decided to introduce a school uniform for our pupils. This establishes an important sense of personal pride and do they look smart in their blue and grey uniform!

We celebrated Independence Day on the 21st of March 2012 at school even though it is a Namibian public holiday day. It was a fun day with sports and painted faces. The Grade 1’s and 2’s made a beautiful Namibian flag for the occasion.
