THERE are sure to be some mixed emotions across the region today as hundreds of kids prepare for the first day of school.
Kindergarten children have been pulling on their crisp new uniforms and shiny new shoes this morning, while parents have packed lunch boxes with yummy snacks and treats in preparation for the big day.
For older kids there could also be a touch of nerves, with the first day of high school and the next stage of their schooling journey.
Meanwhile, drivers are reminded to take note of school zone signage and reduced speed limits around schools.
