AN EVENT aimed at remembering the school days of the past is being held next month as part of this year’s Bromsgrove Festival.

The Bromsgrove Past & Present Facebook Page, Bromsgrove Library, North Bromsgrove High School, South Bromsgrove High School and Future First have joined forces for ‘School Days Remembered’ – a day-long event at Bromsgrove Library from 11am to 8.30pm on July 11.

Pupils past and present from the district’s 16 first and middle Schools, two high schools and one independent school are all being invited to contribute and take part.

And, as part of the celebration, the organisers have launched an appeal for any old photographs from schools in Bromsgrove, old school uniforms, badges, ties and old school books. All contributions can be collected from the library after the event.

Old school photos and memories can be posted on the Bromsgrove Past & Present Facebook Page – https://www.facebook.com/BromsgrovePastPresent/ – where there are already some that others have put up there.

At 6.30pm, there will be the ‘Welcome to the Great Big School Reunion and Talk’ followed by ‘The Great Big School Quiz’ which will be kindly hosted by North Bromsgrove High School and South Bromsgrove High School. The friendly contest will feature two teams of five, each with a team member from the 1970, 1980s, 1990, and 2000s along with a special guest/former pupil from each school to act as captain.

The Great Big Schools Reunion and celebrations will then continue locally in the town at a venue to be announced.

For more information email ptansell@worcestershire.gov.uk or drop into the library to speak to her in person.
