The kindergarten, pre-school, language support and Child & Youth Centre are in contact with the children and support them with distance learning programmes.

Our employees are available via email.
Thank you for your understanding and your support during these challenging times.

Yours sincerely,

School Management & School Board of the Deutsche Schulverein Windhoek (1949)

Due to the DHPS being closed, please arrange an appointment with the department management if you have any questions or urgent matters - find contact details here.

Following various reports concerning the spread of the coronavirus and the latest developments in Europe, we herewith would like to inform you about the measures taken at DHPS to prevent the virus from spreading.

The following measures are recommended to prevent infection or further spread of the disease.
  • do not shake hands when greeting or saying goodbye, avoid any other way of touching hands
  • maintain good personal hygiene, especially regular and proper hand washing

We ask all parents to see a doctor immediately with their children at the first signs of coronavirus disease and under no circumstances bring their children to school. We are in contact with the responsible authorities and will inform you immediately, if any further action is required. So far, however, there is no cause for concern in Namibia. We therefore ask all parents to remain calm.

Further information by the Federal Foreign Office, the Ministry of Health and Social Services and the German government is available under the following links:
