THERE were more smiles than tears as pupils started their first day on Wednesday.

The Fever visited some South Coast school to wish pupils a good start. Margate Grade 1 pupils were grown up about going to “big school”.

At Merlewood Primary a handful of the pupils shed some tears, wanting to go back home with their parents and enjoy a few more days in bed.

At Hibiscus Primary School it was the parents who shed a tear as the little ones queued up all prim and proper for the next big step. South Coast Academy Grade 1 pupils were also unfazed.

At Port Shepstone Junior Primary the first day of school was a normal day as if the pupils had practised how they should behave and be happy for the day ahead.
