Big school time

The first day of school can be a traumatic time for many, but six-year-old Kronendal Primary Grade 1 pupil Onako Ngono showed no signs of fear ahead of his school career. He was accompanied to school by mom Sylvia.

■ It was the first day of “big” the school for thousands of Grade 1 pupils in the Western Cape on Wednesday January 11. At Hout Bay’s Kronendal Primary School, however, most of the Grade 1s were raring to go, ready to take on the challenges of the next 12 years.
