Excited students return for new school year

IT WAS a 5.30am start at the Van Niekerk household as excited youngsters Troy and Emma prepared for their first day at St Saviour's Primary School.

This morning students across Toowoomba excitedly, or probably in some cases, reluctantly, prepared for the beginning of the new school year.

Troy excitedly dressed in his new uniform to begin prep classes, while his sister was ready to meet all her new friends as a new year one student.

Poor dad Rory seemed relieved the moment had arrived after hearing about it regularly for the past few months.

"It's very exciting and we were up at 5.30 this morning getting ready," he said.

"Ever since kindy broke up last year it's all he's been talking about.

"Emma was also very excited and has been counting down the sleeps to today."

They went through the classic routine of taking a swag of happy snaps of the pair as they prepared to embark on their primary education journey.
