Young pupils start their school journey13 Sep 2016
PUPILS posed with pride after putting on their school uniforms for the very first time.
New starters were welcomed to Barnard Castle Preparatory School as they began the best days of their lives.
Reception age children met teachers and were shown to their classroom to begin their learning experience.
Headmistress Laura Turner said: “The first day of school is a special moment that will be remembered by children for their rest of their lives.
“It is also an equally momentous time for their parents as they leave their precious children in our care. Happily, the children soon settle into their new routines and begin to enjoy their new learning environment.”
Barnard Castle School will stage an official Open Day on October 1, from 9.30am to 11.30am, when prospective parents and children can tour its facilities and talk to staff and pupils.
