Dibasen Junior Secondary School


Dibasen Junior Secondary School

Dibasen Junior Secondary School is a school in Okombahe, 60 km west of Omaruru in the Erongo Region of central Namibia.[1] It was founded in 1982[2] and has 16 teachers and about 360 learners in grades 7 to 9.[3]

The school was the target of several arson attacks at the time of Namibia's transition into independence in the late 1980s and early 1990s. As a result of those politically motivated attacks, student numbers went down from 900 to 200. During an attempt to rebuild the school the remaining hostel blocks burned down in 2005.[1]
