The education ministry’s annual sports event, which took place in Windhoek from 6 to 9 May, saw regional teams, head office staff and non-teaching staff from the various regions, participate in netball, soccer and volleyball.

The teams where hosted at the Windhoek Technical High School and Academia Secondary School in Windhoek, where the sports events took place.

Centred on team building and wellness among education stakeholders, the event also served as a platform for them to socialise and create work-related networks.

Staff members at regional offices, head office, the National Institute for Educational Development (NIED) and non-teaching staff in schools and hostels got the chance to learn each other’s cultures and practices, while simultaneously keeping their bodies and minds fit.

In addition, there was a Miss Education pageant that took place on 7 May, where Sinte Mathe from the Zambezi Region emerged as the winner.

Annely Shigwedha from Ohangwena was the first princess and Wilmary Gowases from //Karas was the second princess.

Enid Deku, the public relations officer of the ministry’s social club, said the pageant was merely for team building and recreation, and thus no expectations are placed on the winner.

The tournament has gained popularity over the years as all regional directorates are now represented at the sports event.

In the first year only nine teams participated. Deku said the professional and fair officiating by match officials was commendable.

Khomas won the soccer tournament, with Kavango East ending second and Kavango West third.

Khomas also scooped gold in the netball competition, while Omaheke won silver and Kavango West bronze. In volleyball, Zambezi emerged as the winners, with Oshikoto second and the Great Kunene team in third place.
