Big school

Leah Smit, 4, from Portland, who will be turning 5 on Thursday January 17, was very eager to dress up for this photo. She will be attending Wespoort Primary School in Portland. When she grows up she wants to be like Barbie because of all the gifts she received over the holidays. The first thing she wants to do at school is write down names and paint.

Today is the first day of big school for the class of 2030 and these lovely faces are so excited about their first day. Thousands of Grade R and 1 pupils across the province are geared up to meet their new teachers and classmates and PT class.
