MY FIRST YEAR: Don't miss our kindy photo feature

IT'S that time of the year again, where our littlest kids get to show their stuff!

To celebrate the region's kindergarten students starting their formal education, Walkley Award-winning photographer and Daily Examiner photojournalist Adam Hourigan has captured that special milestone after visiting 30 schools across the Clarence Valley for My First Year.

The special commemorative lift out has become an institution in the Clarence Valley and will be published in The Daily Examiner next Wednesday, March 25.

This keepsake edition is our biggest seller of the year - for good reason. Parents see their little ones in their flagship local paper, mostly for the first time.

In an exclusive sneak preview and for the first time, this photo feature will go live on The Daily Examiner website from tomorrow (Thursday, March 19).

Subscribe today to ensure you don't miss out on this exclusive memento of your little one's first year of school.

While parents will be able to see their children's faces in our online galleries, we know they will want the printed edition of the paper as well on March 25.

We'll be printing hundreds of extra copies as we know many parents like to get copies for grandparents and as a memento to dig out for 18th and 21st birthday parties.

We'd also love to hear from you if you have a My First Year photo from years ago. Email your photo and story so we can share it with others to
