FOR some it may feel like a lifetime ago, while for others it seems only yesterday since you waved your child off at the school gates for the first
   But thousands of parents across Warrington will watch their son or
daughter take their final steps into primary school this week.

  Sadly, for some it will be a virtual farewell due to many classes having to isolate because of Covid.
   Despite all the disruption to school life we have been able to put together a special 16-page souvenir edition in today's Warrington Guardian which features more than 80 class photographs. 
   Every school and pupil was invited to take part, however understandably not everyone was able to because of the ongoing circumstances, so below we have included a list of the schools that have been involved.
   Most of the pictures were taken by our photographer Dave Gillespie and copies of those will be available to buy online from next Wednesday, just go to to order yours. 
  From everyone at the Warrington Guardian, after what has undoubtedly been the most challenging 16 months for all pupils, parents and teachers, we wish your child the very best as they head off to high school in September.
