Every parent knows the importance of being present at their child’s first day of school. Whether it’s Grade 00 or 12, it’s a big deal.

Since Anele Mdoda hosts one of the biggest radio breakfast shows in the country, “Anele and the Club on 947”, she isn’t always able to experience the madness and thrill of dropping her son off at school on day one.

This year she was adamant she wasn’t going to miss Alakhe’s big day, so she came up with the perfect plan to kill two birds with one stone.

The 947 Breakfast Club gathered their equipment and headed to Reddam House Helderfontein and broadcast from the principal’s office.

On X she wrote: “I always miss Alakhe’s first day of school or I miss the show so I can attend his first day of school, this year… I said we won’t be missing any of the above. I came up with a master plan #Aneleandtheclubon947.”

Fans praised Mdoda for her efforts.
