With both the national and secondary schools re-opening this week, we wish all the children well as they head back to their class rooms. Whether it’s a child’s first day in junior infants, their first day in secondary school or the even bigger step of moving to college this can be an emotional time for families, but it’s also the start of a new adventure in the children’s lives.
