Thursday is expected to be a busy day for motorists, children and parents alike when thousands of children start primary school.

The rentrée scolaire officially marks the end of the school holidays for some 46,065 pupils, who will make their way to classrooms around the country.

While it may not be good news for pupils who value their leisure time, it could prove even more troublesome for motorists. Roads are expected to become more congested because of the number of parents driving their children to school and returning to work themselves.

As such, motorists are warned to expect some delays around school opening and closing times.

For some parents, Thursday may also be a heart-wrenching day as they send their child off to the school for the first time.

While Luxembourg's national primary schools return on September 15, some of the country's private schools have already returned to lessons.

St George's International School open its doors on September 14, meanwhile the International School of Luxembourg returned to class on August 29.
