DHPS showcases cultural diversity

DHPresS editorial team
Our school is a melting pot with a variety of learners from all over the world, each with their own experiences and perspectives to share in the classroom. For instance, you may find learners from Germany, Ethiopia, the United Kingdom and many other countries. The cultural diversity here at DHPS extends not only to international learners, but also to locals from various ethnic groups, religions and tribes.

Our school community benefits from the richness of this diversity by allowing us to learn about different cultures, beliefs and ways of life, which broadens our understanding of the world. It also allows us to make new friends and gain valuable insights and experiences that we would not have had otherwise.

It is critical to establish an atmosphere of respect, tolerance and understanding in our diverse school environment. This is accomplished by events like the cultural day on 16 March, and by encouraging open and honest dialogues between learners and staff.

Speaking of open dialogues, some of our learners were kind enough to accept an interview with us.

Zambia has fewer buildings and more land than Namibia.

I love Namibia because it has a lot of places to go to and the food is delicious.

What cultural customs or traditions have you observed in your new environment that are different from your own?

I didn’t think about it. I'm used to seeing different cultures.

Namibians have shown me that family is the first priority.
