Community throws a party for Headmaster who worked at the school for 27 years. The Donkwedonkwe community in Matobo district, Matabeleland South province, held a farewell party for headmaster Maxwell Nyathi, who served its high school for 27 years.
Community throws party for Headmaster who worked at the school for 27 years. A long-serving headmaster received a befitting send-off from community members after working at a local school for nearly three decades.
Nyathi was described as a hardworking and committed civil servant who contributed a lot to the development of the school and the community through his sound administration.
Speaking in an interview with Southern Eye, Donkwedonkwe School Development Committee vice-chairperson Lameck Ncube said they decided to give Nyathi a token of appreciation as a community, celebrating his contributions at the school he joined in 1994. Said Ncube:
Many children who are products of the school are now doctors, lecturers, while others are in South Africa occupying high positions at their workplaces. He is a humble man who interacted well with the community.
Former head boy, former school teacher and former director of music group African Stars, which was started at the school, Sehliselwe Khumalo, said Nyathi had a charismatic approach to issues. He said:
Through him, I became a head boy, a former teacher at the same school and former director of the African Stars music group that has become a hit on the radio of late. I am now a practising lawyer and I owe it to his administration.
Nyathi, who grew up in Matobo District, said he was leaving the school a happy man after 27 years of commitment to the learning institution and the community. He said: I am excited and leaving the school a happy man after spending 27 years trying to inspire confidence at the school.
