First Class 2021 is here! It’s our annual celebration of the P1 pupils in our communities who are beginning their journeys at schools across the region.
We wish all P1 pupils the best as they start learning, playing and making friends in their new classes.
Over the next fortnight we’ll be publishing online galleries and special Press and Journal souvenir printed supplements of P1 class photos from schools across the North and North-East.
This is your complete guide to where to find each school photo online and in print.
