Back to school, back to reality!

Parents all over the country are thrilled to be sending their children back to school after a very LONG holiday.

Parents, including some famous moms and dads, happily shared pictures of their little ones’ first day.

Rachel Kolisi couldn’t contain her excitement and appears to be the only person in her household happy about the start of the academic year.

Melanie Bala had a bit of a mission getting her “embarrassed” kids to pose for a picture.

Rachel Kolisi

Rachel Kolisi shared an epic back to school picture on Instagram. Her husband Siya Kolisi and his siblings, Liyema and Liphelo all look glum while standing next to their pool. The couple’s children, Nicholas and Keziah, are also in the shot. Rachel can be seen relaxing on a unicorn pool float – looking thrilled that all the children are heading back to school.

And before anyone adds a shady commented, Rachel said her less than sparking pool is being sorted out.
