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!

NPH launches the Solid Foundations materials for Senior Primary throughout the country!

It's been almost a month since our marketing drive through Namibia and launches of our approved Solid Foundations series of textbooks for Senior Primary Phase. It was a great turnout from the teachers in Omusati and Oshana Regions as we launched the NPH materials in Outapi, Oshakati and Ondangwa!

Our team of publishers have left their desks in Windhoek to travel to the regions, visit schools and promote our newly approved materials. They've experienced a very warm welcome and great feedback on our books from local educators.

They were also impressed by how well behaved learners are, especially in the remote areas of the country. This was most encouraging and inspiring. We feel that as partners in education, together we are truly building our nation on SOLID FOUNDATIONS!
