Early birds keen to start the academic year

While many learners are still enjoying their last days of the holiday before the opening of the government schools next week Wednesday, those attending private schools kicked off their academic year this week already. 

On their first day of school, these early birds looked more than ready and excited about the new adventure that awaits.
