Textbook Exhibition for the Newly Approved Junior Secondary Materials at the Mao Zedong Secondary School a Great Success!

It has only been a few weeks since the announcement of the submission results for the Junior Secondary Phase materials and the teachers are already keen to place their orders. It was therefore a great opportunity for the publishers to attend yesterday's Textbook Exhibition organised by the Directorate of Education, Arts and Culture and hosted at the the hall of the Chairman Mao Zedong High School in Otjomuise, Windhoek.

Teachers from the majority of schools in Windhoek and surrounding areas were present at the exhibition, as were Senior Education Officers and Head of Departments. Namibia Publishing House made most of this opportunity to promote our newly approved SOLID FOUNDATIONS materials for Grades 8-9, give out full sets of promotional copies of the books and posters to schools and interact with teachers.

At the same time, our devoted marketing team, Nikanor, Vaino and Irvin, have been visiting schools throughout the country, doing exactly the same, distributing promotional copies of the SOLID FOUNDATIONS series of textbooks, posters and our 2016-2018 Catalogues for our approved materials.

NPH at the 11th National Mathematics Congress

From 17 to 20 May this year, educators from around the country flocked to Swakopmund for the 11th National Mathematics Congress organised by the Ministry of Education. The Congress, taking place at the Namib High School, served as an opportunity to reflect on achievements in mathematics, share ideas on solving common challenges, and identify issues affecting mathematics.

With the revision of the curriculum the Ministry embarked on being in its various stages of implementation, it was good for the educators to get together to discuss the way forward in effecting the new mathematics syllabi from Junior Primary to Junior Secondary throughout the country.

Namibia Publishing House, as a solid partner in education, was there to give the necessary support in form of our approved teaching materials.

What a year it has been!

Time flies when you are in the publishing business. One minute you are preparing books for submission, and the next you are packing them for delivery to schools! Now that the year is nearly over, Namibia Publishing House would like to thank all our partners in education, especially our esteemed Authors, Teachers, Principals and Head of Departments who took the time to attend the launches of our approved and proving very successful SOLID FOUNDATIONS series for Junior and Senior Primary Phase that we organised across the country.

of the lodge
Last week, our staff enjoyed a long awaited year-end function. It was a summer-themed event held at River Crossing Lodge, a scenic oasis of peace located 3 km outside of Windhoek. With the staff in their summer colours and décor to match, the function became a colourful, fun-filled afternoon. All in all, it was a great success, with the staff enjoying the relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and the opportunity to reflect on the year’s achievements.

Now we are back in the office, still working, but we look forward to the new school year with hope and enthusiasm, wishing all our NPH family a very happy, prosperous and safe year 2016!
