My name is Wynand Diergaardt. I am the only child in my family. I am married to Christel and I have two children, Darren and Andrea.

Educational Background

I started my schooling in a small town in the south of Namibia called Schlip. After primary school I went to Swakopmund and completed my high school career. UNAM was my next stop where I completed my teaching diploma as well as my B.Ed degree. I am currently busy with my M.Ed degree in Early Childhood Development. I was a teacher by profession, but I am not teaching anymore. Seeing that my mother is staying in Swakopmund I started my teaching career at Tamariskia High School in Swakopmund in 1990. After two years of teaching in Swakopmund I moved to Rehoboth where I continued my teaching career at the Dr Lemmer High School in Rehoboth. I resigned in 2005 and joined the staff at the Namibian College of Open Learning. I am working as a Programme Developer in Social Science at the Namibian College of Open Learning.NAMCOL
