Media Alert: Opening of School Year - Minister of Education to Hand out Parents' Guides

13 January 2011

On Monday, Western Cape Education Minister, Donald Grant, will be visiting a number of schools in the Cape Town region to assess school readiness for the 2011 school year.

He will begin his day by visiting the Grade 1 learners, and their parents, of Golden Grove Primary.

The Minister will be addressing the learners and their parents, and will be handing out a Western Cape Education Department (WCED) Parents Guide to the parents of the Grade 1 learners.

The guide welcomes parents and their child to Grade 1, and includes some suggestions as to what parents must do to support their child in the first year of school.

It provides a snapshot of the Language and Mathematics syllabuses and how parents can help their children in these subjects. It also includes information on what children must know and be able to do by the end of Grade1 and recommended reading lists.
