MEGA GALLERY: 130+ photos of Gympie region preppies
Starting school for any child and their parent or carer is a moment to be cherished for life.
Our photographer Patrick Woods has spent the past two months driving from school to school to capture every new preppy beginning their journey this year.
And you can remember this precious milestone forever by downloading the digital copy of the images below or purchasing a hard copy in the Courier Mail on Wednesday (March 24).
The mega gallery above includes both the original images and the funny face versions of prep classes from across the Gympie region.
