The first day of the new school year carries with it the tradition amongst young students of parents dropping off their children. It was no different for the Rousseau family from Shearstown. Parents Erica (left) and Byrne (far right) made sure to accompany their children Carter (second from left) and Tyson to Coley's Point Primary in Bay Roberts.

There was a mixture of excitement and trepidation at schools throughout the Trinity-Conception-Placentia region today as hundreds of students made their way to classes to begin the 2014-15 academic year.

It was also a red-letter day for educators, who welcomed back their charges following summer break.

According to the provincial government, the 2014-15 school year will see about 67,400 students enrolled at 262 public schools throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Ten year ago, there were 81,000-plus students, and 300-plus schools.

Here are some scenes from opening day at schools in Bay Roberts, Carbonear and North River.
