Gr. 1 learners:

1.  Children may enroll for gr. 1 if they turn 6 before the 30th of June in the same       year.

2.   It is compulsory to go to gr. 1 in the year that the child turns 7.

3.   We always recommend that you enroll your child when he/she turns 7.

4.  If English is not your first or home language, it becomes more difficult for a younger child to adjust in gr. 1.  Research has also shown that a child who attends at a younger age, needs a higher I.Q. to measure up to his peers in
 gr. 1.  Emotional Intelligence is another important factor. This means that a child starts to understand his emotions and feelings, and can be assertive when necessary. He also has a good self-image.

5. Please consider all the above facts before making a decision about your child's future.

6. If you are unsure, please make an appointment with the principal to discuss the matter.

7. We may expect from you to have your child tested at our/your own therapist.
