WITH excited faces and heavy hearts, parents all over Kempton Park dropped off their sons and daughters to experience their first day of school as Grade 1s, on Wednesday morning.
EXPRESS visited Laerskool Impala, Laerskool Birchleigh, Laerskool Edleen, Aston Manor Primary and Kempton Park Primary, to see what the Grade 1s were up to.
Some classes enjoyed welcoming sweet packets, while others were colouring in and getting to know each other.
There are eight sets of twins among the five schools that EXPRESS visited this year.
They are Kayla and Chloe Burger (Laerskool Impala); Khutso and Kamogelo Sephesu (Laerskool Birchleigh); Olebogeng and Olebile Rasebopye (Laerskool Birchleigh); Onwabilwe and Owethu Khumalo (Laerskool Birchleigh); Thabisile and Thabiso Timone (Aston Manor Primary); Kabelo and Kathlego Monyane (Aston Manor Primary); Joshua and Daniel Meyer (Aston Manor Primary) plus Kyle and Kate-lynn Jacobs (Laerskool Edleen).
