THIS week youngsters of all ages will return to school in the Borders as summer comes to an end.

The first day of school is an important part of a child's time in education, no matter which year they are going into.

But, for some, this first day is a big step.

The first day of school is one pupils will remember for years to come, especially if they are going into P1 and S1 - marking the start of their primary and secondary school years, and for pupils moving into S4 and S6 - for whom this might be their final year school and with their futures outside of school ahead of them.

To commemorate this special day for young people in the Borders, we want to hear from the families of those going into their first years (P1 and S1) and final years (S4 and S6) at school.
