HANKIES were at the ready recently when farewells were made and an era came to an end.

Muirhead Primary School Nursery held their graduation ceremony at the Troon school recently.

And mums, dads, grans, grannies and carers turned out in good numbers for the event.

Certificates were presented to the departing children, who in just a matter of weeks will be preparing for a whole new challenge - school life.

This event will provide great memories for children and parents now and in years to come.
