The new uniform, the nervous wait to see if their day went well and the excitement when they make new friends.
It’s all a part of a special occasion and we hope these 2009 photos bring back wonderful memories.
They show children starting school at Owton Manor, St Cuthbert’s, Kingsley and Elwick primary schools.
We have scenes from St Joseph’s, St Aidan’s, and Lynnfield primary schools too.
Join us on a journey back to the classroom.
