Starting primary school is a big step for little ones and their families and over the years the BallymoneyTimes photographers have captured those precious first days.
We’ve delved into the archives and turned up this great selection of P1 pupils on their first day at various schools in the Ballymoney area back in the 2000s. It’s sure to bring back a few memories.
