This is week 5 of my 52 week project. It is the back to school photos of the kids this year. This week we returned to school and that is always a big event. It is getting smaller with only 2 of the 5 left to return each year. It is a significant year for my youngest son - he is in year 10, the last at his current High School before he transitions to senior High School at the feeder college. My youngest is in year 8. Left show them the first day - it is sport day so they wear their sport uniform all day. The right is the next day in school uniform. Here in Australia all school children - public and private wear school uniforms - it is a sense of pride in the school and to ensure that there is no inequality for the kids regardless of their family financial situations. As a DP and teaching staff member I like that there is this sea of uniforms when the school's line up. It is quite impressive. Staff also get to wear a form of their school's uniform - shirts with staff on them. Going back to school , new shoes, new stationery, new bags - always exciting!
