Pilbara students returned to school last week for the first term of 2017.

Hedland Senior High School held a morning assembly and welcomed new and returning students before getting straight back into routine.

It was the first day of school for Year 7 students, and the final year of study for the Year 12s, with Tore Bule-Turner named as head boy and Morgan Howrie named as head girl.

Newman Senior High School principal Carolyn Cook said Year 7 students at the school were eager to get started, and students and teachers were excited to put their new building to use.
