THE FIRST OF September. We all remember it as the first official day back at school.

Some schools, however, decided to meet their new starts a little early this year with many children taking those first steps into school late last week.

Did you have a little one starting this year? Or a bigger one taking on Secondary School for the first time?

How was it? How are you feeling? We’d love to hear your stories in the comments section.
