Sagewood School Academic year of 2018 started yesterday, 17 January, with lots of smiles, love and not forgetting the little sweet treat that our learners received at the front gates as they were welcomed back to school. For some parents, it marked a major milestone as they were sending their child to school for the first time. On the part of the parents, it was the realisation that that their child will be starting the 2018 academic year filled with expectations and responsibilities. On the part of the learners, it was meeting their friends after the holidays, making new friends, being anxious about their new Grade and meeting their class teachers.
In our little school it was tears, hugs and kisses on their first day back. What time will you fetch me? Why do you have to leave? These were some of the questions our littles ones sought answers to. Some learners simply waved goodbye to their parents and were happy to begin their day at school. This is what one of our parents had to say: “Really encouraging to see the lively activity at the school across the board this morning…..an opportunity for beginning a new chapter.”
