On Tuesday, 7 February Laddsworth Primary School hosted its annual High Schools' Expo, where Grade 6 and 7 pupils, and their parents, from around the Pietermaritzburg and Midlands area came to see what the High Schools in KwaZulu-Natal have to offer. There was a steady flow of people from mid-afternoon onwards, ensuring the High Schools Representatives were kept busy answering questions and handing our information to prospective pupils. Mrs Theresa Jager, the Admissions and Headmaster Secretary at Laddsworth has been organising the expo for the last 13 years. Theresa thoroughly enjoys the Expo as it provides a service to the Maritzburg community who are keen to make an informed decision about their child’s High School career.
