HIS Majesty King Mswati III has been praised for advancing the concept of dialogue as it is the only solution to conflict.

Mhlatane High School Principal Simeon Makhubu said through His Majesty’s wisdom, the nation had hosted a successful Smart Partnership Dialogue where various personalities graced it and mapped a way forward for the country’s health sector, amongst other salient topics.

“We wish to thank him for encouraging dialogue or that is the only solution to the many problems that engulf families and the entire universe. We appreciate also that some of our students were chosen to participate in this so important dialogue and some of them even shared a table with the DPM (Themba Masuku). “This makes us so proud as a school,” Makhubu said. He said the school had lost one of its teachers Ms Mkhonta in a car accident and she died on the spot. She was travelling with two other teachers who are recuperating well.

She was travelling with two other teachers who are recuperating well. One student also passed on this year after suffering from a headache.

“We were informed that he had been taken to Pigg’s Peak Government Hospital and was later transferred to Mbabane where he succumbed to death. Everything happened so fast as a school we did not even have an opportunity to visit him in hospital,” he said, before requesting the gathering to honour the duo with a minute of silence.

The school excelled in extra curricular activities and in the JC results of 2008. In soccer, the Under 17 boys got position one nationally, darts saw seven players from Mhlatane picked to represent the country in Zambia, both boys and girls obtained first position nationally in basketball, two of the school’s soloists got position two while the other managed position three.

In music, the school obtained first position nationally, in volleyball two players were chosen into the national team and in ladies soccer they did not place but a player was chosen for the national team. In Science projects, juniors and seniors got first position nationally.

“Under research two girls say for us to avoid blood clots we must eat garlic. “They got position one nationally. One boy, even though his project did not win, says to prevent overloading; a kombi that will not move when full needs to be created. For chicken farmers, my students can build you a poultry house that will automatically clean itself,” he said. Former senator and Pigg’s Peak businessman Mavovo Mkhonto donated a cow to the school
