Many government schools face classroom shortages, and the Michelle McLean Primary School in Windhoek is no exception.
Patron Michelle McLean visited the school to witness its athletics day.
According to the school principal, a lot of work still lies ahead for the school to be considered a conducive learning environment.
Athletics day, McLean said, is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to the school's plight.
The patron called on donors to assist with the infrastructure improvements.
She commended the principal for the strides made in uplifting the school's image, saying progress, while slow, is visible.
The school feeds about 277 learners with their soup kitchen, and the former Miss Universe donated N$5,000 to assist with the first term.
The school, which opened in 2001 and has 493 learners, was inaugurated by Founding President Sam Nujoma in October 2000.
