St. Mark's Primary and High School Centenary August 2010.
The St. Mark's International and Swaziland Alumni extend a global invite to all former and current Students and Teachers to celebrate the Centenary of St. Mark's School in Mbabane during August 2010.
There's going to be two celebrations, one on the 16th July where His Majesty King Mswati III will be visiting the school. He is also a former student of St. Mark's School since he once enrolled in the school. Then on the 10th August former student, current students, parents and teachers will be celebrating the existance and excellence of the school for the pst 100 years.
In 1909 St Marks School began in a ten foot by ten foot room belonging to the 'Priest-in-Charge' Reverend Christopher C. Watts.
On the 2 August 1910 a foundation stone was laid by the then Bishop of Zululand.
The 1959 Golden Jubilee celebrations marked the last year the primary and high school sections shared the same school buildings.
In 1960 the primary school moved to their own premises, a short distance from the high school.
One hundred years from the date the foundation stone was laid by Reverend Bishop Watts, we look forward to the centenary celebrations of the success of our school.
