First Day of School for Grade One at Laddsworth Primary School
There was much excitement at Laddsworth Primary School on Wednesday, 11 January, as the Grade One pupils arrived at school, some as early as 07h00, to start their school career. It was lovely to see that there were very few tears, more from the Moms than from the brave Grade Ones.
We wish all our pupils a fantastic 2017, work hard and Aim High!
