After weeks of summer holiday fun, Melton and Moorabool students have returned to school.

The first day back was filled with fun stories to tell and exciting things to share.

Twins Harry and Lucy (pictures) skipped their way into Melton South Primary School eager to start prep.

And as thousands of students returned to school across the state, drivers were being reminded to heed 40 km/h speed limits in school zones during pick-up and drop-off times.
