As children of all ages begin new years and new schools, parents have been showing their pride with the ever popular back to school photos.
Mums and dads sent in pictures of the youngsters’ big moments to the Evening Post.
Whether it’s in front of the fridge, in the living room or on the front door step, the excitement of starting a new school chapter is spread across the children’s faces.
St Mary and St Benedict’s Primary School in Bamber Bridge, Ashton Community Science College and St Cecilia’s Roman Catholic High School in Longridge were just three of many schools to receive some of the new students as they filtered back into education after the six-week summer holidays.
Thanks to everyone who submitted pictures.
