Parents pride themselves by posting pictures of their children, wearing their school uniforms, on their first day of school this year. For many, education is seen as a way to ensure a better and brighter future for their families.

South African celebrities shared how their little ones looked on their first day . An interesting fact about this year’s grade 1's is that most were born in 2010, when South Africa hosted the FIFA World Cup.
