My son is now in Grade RR, and he is 4 turning 5 this year. Next year he with be in Grade R, and he will be 5 turning 6. The following year he will be in Grade 1, and will be 6 turning 7.
When I was young I was 5 turning 6 when I went to Grade 1 and I completed matric when I was 17. The rest of my friends was 18, I am still not certain how I was accepted in school at such a young age. I attended a public school who normally are strict on the age factor.
I am so excited for my son to go to Grade 1, will no longer be a baby. He already is so independant.
