It may seem like they've been off for a while, but we know some people will already be eager to see the day when East Ayrshire's young people go back to school after the Christmas and New Year break.

Having been off since the Friday before Christmas, pupils across the area still have plenty of leisure time left before they have to start thinking about a return to class.
