Bank Windhoek supports NAMCOL’s awards

On Thursday, 5 March 2020, Bank Windhoek’s Katutura Branch supported the Namibian College of Open Learning's (NAMCOL) annual Prize Giving Ceremony for Junior Secondary Certificate (JSC) and the Namibia Senior Secondary Certificate (NSSC). The awards, which aimed at recognising learners and tutors for their exceptional performances in the 2019 JSC and NSSC Higher Level national examinations, took place at NAMCOL’s head office in Windhoek, with stakeholders and sponsors in attendance.

As the main sponsor, Bank Windhoek awarded six categories, namely Best Overall Performance in JSC Life Science in 14 Regions, Best Overall Performance in NSSC Home Languages in 14 Regions, Best Overall Performance in two or more JSC Subjects per Region, Best Overall Performance JSC in three or more Subjects, Best Overall NSSC, excluding Pre-Entry to Tertiary Education Programme (PETE) and Best Overall NAMCOL Candidate for 2019 national examinations. Each category winner received a certificate as well as a cash prize by the relevant sponsors.

Martha Ntaagona walked away with the Best overall NAMCOL candidate award. She also received the Best Overall PETE candidate NSSCO/H Level three or more subjects award. Ntaagona's accolade includes a cash prize from Bank Windhoek, a tablet from Cambridge University Press, and a NAMCOL scholarship, which covers first year’s registration and tuition fees at any higher learning institution of her choice. However, Ntaagona could not make it to the awards due to her study commitments in Zambia; a family member collected her accolades.  

Bank Windhoek’s Katutura Branch Manager, Josef Sheehama, who congratulated the learners, said: “Bank Windhoek has been a sponsor of this event for many years and we remain committed to the promise of contributing to creating an educated and sustainable nation.”

Sheehama added that rewarding the youth for their academic achievements is vital to ensuring that they can plough back into their communities and possibly create opportunities for others as well. "As connectors of positive change, Bank Windhoek is proud to be a catalyst of growth in the community where it operates,” he concluded. ​
