New term - new head for Douglas school
It's the first day back at school for hundreds of Manx pupils - and for the youngest the first day ever at school.
It's also the first day at a new school for a secondary head on the Island.
Chris Coole takes up the top job at St Ninian's High School, after moving from Ballakermeen.
He says it's an exciting time for the children just moving into secondary education.
