THE first days at school are precious ones as children take their first steps into the world of education.

And our souvenir supplement aims to capture the memories for families to treasure for years to come.

There's still time to pick up a copy from an outlet near you, our the Hexham Courant offices on Beaumont Street in Hexham.

Our photographer, Kate Buckingham, has visited every corner of the district to photograph a total of 49 reception classes from first and primary schools across Tynedale.

Copies of photographs can be ordered online by using the reference numbers printed under each image.
