Events were held across the region on Friday to recognise the crucial role of support staff in our schools.
UNISON's 'Stars in Our Schools' day promotes the wonderful work school support staff do every day.
Events were held across the region, including in Sefton, Manchester, Lancashire, Bury and Oldham.
The events were very enjoyable - with lots of cakes and superhero costumes, and some local MPs took part. Here are a small selection of photos from a very busy day.
