Nine photos of South Tyneside children on their first day of school in 2005

Were you pictured on your first day of school in South Tyneside nearly 20 years ago?

Where has the time gone? All these little ones spent their first day at school 19 years ago

From Harton Infants to Marine Park and Bede Burn to All Saints, every one of these photos come from the Shields Gazette archives in 2005.

So if you were in Mrs Monte’s class at St Oswald’s, Mrs Woods at Bede Burn or Mrs Gregory’s at St Mary’s in Tyne Dock, we’ve got memories for you.
