Swazi Observer - - NATIONAL NEWS - Sto­ries by Won­der­boy Dlamini

OF­FI­CIALS and teach­ers took turns to com­mend re­tir­ing Agri­cul­ture teacher Thulie Ma­suku-Md­luli for dis­play­ing the true qual­i­ties of a pas­sion­ate teacher over the past 30 years.

The speech and prize giv­ing day at Mphun­dle High School was dou­bled with the farewell func­tion of Ma­sukuMd­luli who has been with the school since the early 1980s.

Ma­suku-Md­luli, wife to Lubombo Re­gional Ed­u­ca­tion Of­fi­cer Wellington Md­luli was de­scribed as a true re­flec­tion of a teacher who un­der­took the pro­fes­sion for the love of it.

When mak­ing her re­marks, Prin­ci­pal of the school, Phumzile Nku­mane-Dlamini said the re­tir­ing teacher has been an in­spi­ra­tion to other teach­ers as she al­ways dis­played pro­fes­sion­al­ism in her work. She said de­spite hav­ing been with the same school for many years, she re­mained com­mit­ted to her work and put her pupils first. Mean­while, Schools In­spec­tor Gugu Dlamini who rep­re­sented the re­gional ed­u­ca­tion of­fice said the min­istry was happy with the con­duct dis­played by the re­tir­ing teacher. Dlamini pointed out that Ma­suku-Md­luli has never been re­ported for any dis­ci­plinary is­sues.

She then urged younger teach­ers to fol­low the same path and re­main com­mit­ted to their work.
