Windhoek Gymnasium Private School holds a memorial service next week

The Windhoek Gymnasium Private School (WGPS) will hold a memorial service next week Thursday in remembrance of its two learners who perished in a car accident on Sunday on the B1 national road between Kalkand and Mariental.

Its Managing Director Colette Rieckert in an interview yesterday told Nampa that the service will be held at the school at 12h00.

The school has a lot to do in preparation of the memorial service, she added.

Meanwhile, hundreds of mourners which included community members, families and friends gathered in front of the school on Monday evening to pray, lay flowers and light candles in respect of the two school children who lost their lives, and those who survived the tragic accident.

Sheriff Sean Naude from the Namibian Marshall Rangers who was at the accident scene told the mourners that prayers have already started there in order to save as many children as possible.
