GEORGE NEWS - Everything was in place for the first day of school at Hibernia Primary and St Pauls Primary.
Wilbur Pedro, principal of Hibernia, said the school is full and they had to turn away learners.
St Pauls Primary still has place for learners in all the grades. Principal Allister Brinkhuis said the name of the school causes confusion.
"We are an Afrikaans medium school only."
Glenwood House welcomed 53 Gr1s who looked very comfortable and composed, as most of them had been together in GrR.
Debbie Symes said there are still a few places available and that the school had grown by 10% compared to last year.

Voting Poll
Finance minister Pravin Gordan says they considered a VAT increase for the 2017 budget, but that an increase should be fine-tuned so that poor people do not have to pay more. Are you willing to pay increased VAT on so-called ‘sin-items’ (alcohol, cigarettes, chocolates, confectionary, certain cuts of prime beef etc) and luxury goods so that basic items can be exempt or remain at 14%?
Yes, the privileged has a responsibility to pay for the poor.
