Stoeis By Sizwe Dlamini THE pupils of Timphisini High who were caught kissing are still at the school and are per­form­ing well, says Prin­ci­pal Si­fiso Maseko.

Maseko said Satan had tried to tar­nish the school’s im­age by us­ing the me­dia, but failed. “Af­ter in­ves­ti­ga­tions into an ar­ti­cle that ap­peared in one of the coun­try’s pub­li­ca­tions to the ef­fect that our pupils were caught kissing by par­ents, we found that the chil­dren in­volved in the in­ci­dent took the pic­tures them­selves with their cell­phones. They then con­tacted the me­dia to pub­lish the story, for­tu­nately for us, through prayer, the pupils in­volved came to my of­fice to con­fess their deeds. They showed me and my staff the pic­tures, to­gether with the cell­phone, and this ev­i­dence is kept in my of­fice,” he said.

The prin­ci­pal said they did not ex­pel the kissing pupils for their act, and now they came top in class with a bright fu­ture ahead of them. This year, the school had 231 pupils ready to write their Ju­nior Cer­tifi­cate (JC) ex­am­i­na­tions, in 2016 there were 163 pupils
