Many of us may not recall our inaugural day of school, and for those who do, the memories may not always be pleasant. It’s a day when you find yourself surrounded by unfamiliar faces, a multitude of kids you’ve never seen in your entire life. Then there are the enigmatic figures known as teachers, who seem to have a knack for denying your every request. On this day, you lack the comforting embrace of your mother’s arms, and you simply blend into the sea of strangers.
Nevertheless, there are some children who actually relish their first day at school. It all hinges on how they navigate the challenges that come their way on this momentous occasion. With that in mind, we’ve decided to share some striking transformations – before and after snapshots – of the first day of school for a selection of youngsters. Take a scroll through these images and be sure to share your own child’s first day of school photos with us!
