THE HERALD’S ever-popular Reception Class pull-out returns this week as we celebrate the start of school life for reception class children across the area.

Proud mums, dads and grandparents can get their hands on 16 pages of pictures of new starters at primary and infant schools in today's paper.

Lined up alongside their new classmates and teachers, with cheesy grins (and yes, a few frowns too!), these photographs are a historic document for every child pictured – and their families.

Schools from Farnham, Alton, Haslemere, Bordon and Liphook are amongst those that have submitted pictures for the supplement, which is on sale for just 90p in shops and supermarkets across the area.

If for any reason you miss out on getting a copy of the Herald (October 14 edition), you can order one by calling our circulation manager Chris Etheridge on 01252 725224 / 07946 854717 or email [email protected]

We have spent weeks gathering photos from every school on our patch. But if your child’s school is missing, we will be publishing further picture stories throughout October.
