Proud parents marked the occasion on Thursday by snapping photos of their little ones in their uniforms – some being worn for the very first time as youngsters made their way to new schools.

To continue this annual celebration, readers of The News shared their back-to-school photos by the dozen in a bid to be featured in our special September photo gallery.

We’ve published them here, across 11 pages, to celebrate youngsters’ step up into a new school year.

Be sure to click through all the pages to see if your child is featured, or help a friend out by sending them a link to this story if you spot theirs.

NOTE: Every photo gallery we publish contains the option to ‘buy a photo’.

However, no pictures from this gallery have been sent to our Photo Sales team – so they are not available to purchase or view elsewhere online.
