A large number of learners did the tests.

The interest from the youngsters was overwhelming and we look forward to seeing great dance performances soon. 5) Visiting People at Work Our Grade R class had a fabulous week learning all about the different jobs people can do as part of their learning theme. Their learning experience was enhanced by a trip to various places of work in Giyani. They visited the fire station, the police station and the dentist. To top the experience they had lunch at a restaurant with their friends.
