Pionierspark Primary School
C/O Mostert and Lardner Burke street, Windhoek, Namibia
Pionierspark Primary School offers several sport codes for the children.
Parkies Community Trust (PCT) is a vital body in the continuous success of the School.
Here we focus on keeping you updated on our adventures and procedures within the school.
On 16 November 1971, the first applications for the enrolment at Pioneirspark Primary School were received at the home of the school secretary. Marieta Beukes was accepted as the very first learner. The official opening of the new school took place on 17 January 1972 with a total of 539 learners and a staff contingent of 20. At this point in time, the classrooms, administrative centre and store rooms were completed. However, additional applications necessitated the school to accommodate one of the Grade 1 class groups within the Senior Primary area! The school hall reached completion at the end of April 1972, and the tennis courts were ready for use on 18 August 1972.
Quite a number of extensions and additions followed over the next few years. The pre-primary complex, as well as a media centre was built. At the sport fields, a pavilion and change rooms were build and carports for teacher and visitors were erected. The staff and school community worked tirelessly over the years in order to establish gardens, play areas, and sport fields for the benefit of our children.
Omvou deur ruwe berge – reeks
In die land van son en veld
Staan fier, opreg in doel en strewe
Ons laerskool Pionierspark.
Dis hier waar ons as kinders leer
Getrou te wees in spel en werk.
Met die durf van jong pioniere
Klim ons elke steilte uit.
Met ons oog gerig op ons leuse
Gaan die toekoms voor ons oop.
Bly ons onwrikbaar op die koers
Vasvertrouend op die Heer.
Glo en werk.
Hold high the name of Pionierspark
As we live our schooling years
We strive to reach in education
The highest victory:
To learn and grow in work and play
And stand together in unity.
In sport and culture we take pride;
Trying just our very best
We love, forgive and share in life
To build a nation strong;
In God almighty we abide
Our future in his hands;
Trust and work.
