The long-awaited day is now past. It was such a joy to see all the children in their bright new uniforms and all the teachers going above and beyond to receive their students with joy and excitement.
The first children to arrive… about half an hour early!
Some of the children do not have their uniforms yet.
Looking pretty in their new uniforms.
As parents arrived with their children our kindergarten staff (Lovelie pictured in uniform) took their children to their specially prepared classrooms…
…and Petion verified each uniform.
