And that is exactly what we have for you in this retro look back at school leavers who were saying goodbye to the juniors and getting ready for big school.
All these South Tyneside school leaver photos come from the Shields Gazette archives.
They include a prom for the leavers at Laygate School and children on their way to ‘Big School’ at Westoe Crown Primary.
Take a look and see if your loved one is in the picture.
