- A PARTING MESSAGE FROM OUR OUTGOING PRINCIPAL – MR. KWENA KGAABI
“It is with a heavy heart that I am singing today’s newsletter for the last time as the principal of this great institution. Tomorrow, the 13/08/2021 will be my last day at the school. This is a very bittersweet moment for me as I look back at the past seven years when I was offered the opportunity to lead the school. Together, as an alliance, we achieved noteworthy accomplishments, gains, and overcame many obstacles. We have built solid, healthy relationships which immensely benefitted the education of our learners. As I bow out to begin my new role at the Department, I take this moment to thank you all for the unwavering support to me and the school. I’m grateful to have crossed paths with you all and I know that MPS will always be close to my heart, and forever be my home. I wish all the learners and MPS staff growth and strength. May God bless and lead you always. Thank you.”
