MY FIRST YEAR: Keepsake of Gympie Region Prep students revealed
Happy Wednesday to our wonderful readers, and I hope you’ve received some decent rain at your place - 150mm here at Pie Creek.
The falls have varied throughout the region, but we can be thankful we’ve missed out on the destructive volumes they received down south, while still getting a nice drop to put a bit more in the dams and nourish our paddocks and gardens.
The day has finally arrived today for parents and carers to remember their child‘s first step into the big world with the My First Year 2021 keepsake.
The Gympie Times has had a long tradition of capturing these special moments and we‘re proud to bring you the photos online and in print this year.
The 44-page bumper liftout, printed in the Courier-Mail on Wednesday, is one of the biggest yet.
Today you will see the smiling faces of students from 230 classes across 90 schools in the Gympie region and on the Sunshine Coast.
Photographer Patrick Woods spent the past two months driving from school to school to capture the milestones.
Pick up your copy of the Courier-Mail at newsagents across the region and you‘ll find the physical copy inside.
If you want access to the photos digitally, you can head here to see our Mega Gallery of more than 130 images.
Subscribers also have exclusive access to an online-only gallery of more than 85 photos featuring the funniest faces from our youngest students in the region - this will not be available in print.
We hope you enjoy!
