Many parents were on hand to witness what for many was an emotional send-off for the youngsters, who will embark on their secondary school careers after the summer holidays.

Our photographers Johnpaul Peebles and Iain Ferguson were on hand to capture all the area’s P7 classes prior to the end of term and over the next three weeks we will be publishing all their fantastic photographs.
